Hi my name is Robert...
Sorry for the delay, normally you would have the luan and then it will be glued with the material to the board, is it possible for you to get a picture and then reply?
Thanks. Robert

Yes but it will be tomorrow . You think Luan even back in 88? I drive a truck and will not be home until tonight
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 2 years ago
Very hard to say for sure, some used to have laun and then then they would glue a foam backed material to the board and the front would be a vinyl type material, but yes this is an old unit so hard to say for sure. I am around daily and respond when I can, we will figure it out once I see a picture. No hurry on my end.... Robert
