Ceiling liner peeling away from the ceiling. How do I fix this?

Hello everyone. We purchased a Itasca Meridian 2006, and after our first trip from LA to NY, the ceiling liner started to peel away at a section of my ceiling then it completely peel off and hanging. Does anyone know how to fix this? It is glued on to foam. The foam is still attached to the ceiling. Just the liner has peeled away from the foam. I tried spray on glue but it won’t stick to the foam. Anyone have any ideas or have already fixed something like this? Thanks.

Perhaps an upholstery glue similar to this would work. What kind of glue did you try using?

There has been multiple posts concerning this- all the way from WGO factory repair (very pricey), to replacing with panels, to injecting adhesive. Need to do a good search and see what may apply to your situation.
Good luck.

We had that and found it was $1,500 per panel at Winnebago to replace panels. Can't really glue it on because the foam doesn't let glue adhere and it make wrinkles.

We finally got a few hundred brass screws with brass caps and screwed them into the ceiling in a pattern of a 4" staggered spacing pattern. It looks pretty good and wife likes the effact so I'm happy.

I just helped a friend create and install 2 new ceiling panels due to water damage, 3M super 90 spray adhesive was used to glue the foam to the wood, and to glue the vinyl to the foam. No problems, spray it on both surfaces, wait 10 minutes and they press together. It's not rocket science, it doesn't require anything you can't easily but. It is however tedious, and be careful not to get that super 90 on anything you don't want it on. Mask off cabinets and trim and such.

We have an '06 Journey (same as Meridian) had some issues with water damage that separated the vinyl ceiling material from its foam backing. The area was relatively small, maybe 1.5 square feet around a ceiling mounted speaker. In our units, a water based adhesive is used to bond the vinyl to the foam, so if that area gets wet from leakage, that bond will separate. I found a solvent based spray adhesive called "Sta-Put" that worked to restore the bond. In previous years I had my dash recovered with OEM material from Winnebago. That material is the same as the ceiling. There were some scraps leftover that I kept and did an experiment to see if the Sta-Put product would work. I soaked a piece of scrap in water to break the bond between the vinyl and foam and separated the two pieces. I allowed everything to dry, then I sprayed the foam and vinyl with Sta-Put and noted that the adhesive did not attack the foam. I waited the 2 or 3 minutes then pressed the two together per the instructions on the can and a few minutes later the bond was solid with the foam still spongy under the vinyl. I got my can of Sta-Put from a dealer, but if you Google the product you will see it is widely available on line.

First you will need to find and fix the leak that caused the bond to fail.

I used that 3M headliner spray (Amazon carries it). Spendie, but it sure works. The fabric is still stuck to the foam 2 years later.

No, that isn't the one I used. The company makes a number of adhesives and the Sta-Put product I used was SPM.

The can is a darker color and says SPM below the Sta-Put identifier.

Below is a link to an earlier thread regarding my problem. The first and last posts are mine and it's the last post that has a pic of the product I used.
