Need advice on remodeling/renovating a prefab (mobile) home


Hi guys , new to the forum. I am in a similar boat to most of these posts. just bought a 1600 ft doublewide in a park so its on a concrete slab with screw jack style supports. i absolutely hate the batten strip look and was considering adding new 1/2 " lightweight sheetrock to the existing 3/8 vinyl covered rock but im concerned with the added weight. so ive decided to try removing the strips and mudding/taping the joints then texture and paint. my question is do i have to try to prime or strip the surface of the vinyl in order for the mud to adhere? and also what medium would be best for taping the joints? fibreglass mesh or reg. paper tape?

Beautiful job on your bathroom! Had to laugh at the carpet going up the tub side.

I just peeled the wallpaper off. Then i primed the wall before mudding and taping the seams. I did this to the kitchen and later the master bathroom. Even if a little of the walls surface comes off you can mud over it. I learned how to tape and mud the wall watching youtube videos. You can see the kitchen wall in progress in one of my posts.
