Drywall for your walls??

Has anyone ever tried using drywall to wall the inside of their bus??

Would it hold with all the vibrations and other elements?

Any input would be appriciated

The inside of my bus is made of real wood, and I know that it was drywall there would be holes everywhere. A bus sure takes a lot of beating loading and unloading things for camping, etc.

Thats what I thought too... Just wanted to ask and see if others have done, and what their experiences have been like if they have...

I think I will be using either wood, or sheet metal.

I don't think the joints would hold up with all the vibration. Drywall is also too heavy for me. I was planning on 1/4" plywood then spraying it with regualr drywall texture. I would mix some latex paint with the texture to help it stick better.
