That does not appear to be water damage from what I can see on the internet. It does look like the wallpaper has warped or been at some point "wet" but it could be a 100 different things. Checking for active moisture is what you need to do and if its dry, hit the camper hard with a hose around that same area outside and see if it changes. If not, its probably just normal wear and tear on a used camper.

We had the same problem in 2 small areas of our wallpaper on the back of a dinette bench and the wall above(both in the slide out). What I did was cut the wallpaper straight down with an exacta knife peeled the loose wall paper back, reapplied some good quality Weldbond glue and replaced the folded wall paper back over the reglued area. It has held perfectly and you have to look very hard to see where the repair was done. The cut back and reglued area almost looks like the natural grain in the wallpaper. I did small areas at a time to accomplish this. The repair has stayed for over 2 years now.
You may want to try a small area on one of your less visible walls to see if this might work for you.
Good Luck.

After reading the thread, I'd say the wrinkled wall paper might be caused from internal condensation from occupants in the camper without adequate ventilation.
