You said paneling, so I assume some kind of wood grain surface. They make peel and stick fake paneling in a wide variety of colors/species. Get a small piece, cut some circles, and stick them over the holes. Won't be perfect, but it is still a camper at the end of the day.

I would use wood filler crayons available at Home depot or Lowes or online.
Easy to use and if you take your time those holes will become almost invisible.

Buy a flat cold air return grill. They make them in many different sizes. They may only come in white but you could always paint it a color to blend in with the wall.

Wood grain paneling repair tape

Peel and stick hole covers. Also called peel and stick cover cap

The manufacturer gave me a couple sheets that matched my paneling when I had it in for warranty work.

A piece of molding above and another below. Run these from corner to corner in the room. Fill in between them with a strip of wood in a contrasting color or wallper or tile or whatever.

Get a sheet of decorative paneling something like they use in some RV ceilings,then cut it to fit and glue it to the existing panel.

Yes, I owned a camper that had a grill like that mounted to the outside of the camper. It looked like a normal intake for something (Fan, fridge, etc.) I couldn't figure out why something like that was in that location. I removed it and found that the previous owner had poked a hole in the side of the camper. After filling the hole it still looked bad so he just covered it up with this.

No one ever suspected a thing or noticed it at all.
