None of the inside walls that access outside storage on my trailer have anything to them. From the storage compartment, you can see the framing and wall board, there aren't two layers. Now from the storage compartment to the outside, that's different. But everything that's NOT an outside wall is only the framing and one side of thin luan wall board.
Even my rear bunk that shares a wall with the shower stall. Above the bunk base, it's finished wall with wall board and wall paper. But below the bunk, there's a storage compartment, and you can see the back of the shower wall and the framing from inside the storage compartment.
Are you sure there are two layers to the wall in question? It would seem odd for the inside of a storage compartment to be "finished" except for perhaps the basement on a 5er.
