Refinishing Textured Wallpaper Walls in Mobile Home

What is the best thing to do with walls in a double wide trailer? They have those textured wallpapered walls in them. Do they paint well? Should I cover them with drywall? All I know is they are ugly. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Another mobile home question, LOL! There's a great forum for help on mobile home decorating, repair, etc., which I found here on I live in a mobile home, and I'm still learning about it, so I don't know the answer to your question. However, you'll find people who can answer you, at this site:

(I'm not spamming or anything, I just don't want to give any mobile home advice that would do more harm than good. So it's best to ask the people who know more about these homes than I do.)

I painted over mine with latex paint a few years ago and I haven't had a problem.

Painting them works just fine and being that they are textured they'll look really nice using your favorite color(s). Many people pay a lot of money to have that textured look ;-)
