Smile Ceiling coming unglued

We have textured vinyl ceiling on our 04 Beaver. We have noticed in a few places that the ceiling seems to be coming unglued. Does anyone know of a good method for re-gluing the ceiling material up and what is the best glue to use. We really hate to cut the ceiling to get up under there to re-glue. Any help would be appreciated

Friends winne has similar problem. We made small hole and sprayed glue in and rolled down. Then to make sure we put oak 1" strips every four feet where we made the holes and stained to match cupboards and they are like boat cover stays

Same problem

Our 05 Itasca Horizon has just had the same problem! The best spray glue for ceilings is 3M 80, but it will only glue the vinyl to the existing old form backing. The foam comes apart in another place. I don't like putting extra boards on the ceiling. With newer coaches, I don't like to add things that just make it look junky. I have bit the bullet and removed all the foam backed vinyl in the lining area from the bulkhead to just behind the drivers seat, a total of 18 feet. The hardest part is removing, scraping off the old foam. Have been working on that for most of the week, I will replace the ceiling (headliner) with a carpet like material rather than vinyl. "Ozite" is one product I am considering

Ozite has been around for decades. Always a good product and fairly easy to work with.
Since it is a unitary back material, it will not fray- but you still need a sharp blade in your utility knife.

We had the identical same situation you are describing in an ex-Monaco MH.
The dealer, Paul Evert's RV in Fresno, Ca. was directed by Monaco in Coburg, OR to cut short pieces of aluminum angle, insert in areas in the ceiling that was coming down, through light fixtures and vents. They would screw in the angled pieces from within and once fastened, they would screw up into the ceiling from below and into the aluminum angle. The screws were then covered with 1" wooden flat strips across the ceiling from one end to the other to match cabinet stain. Looked like a factory job and held up very well. If interested, you can call the dealer and I believe the technician that performed the work was Rod, Pat Clive (?) was the service writer.

Hope this helps, always something with RV's.

I had the same problem with my ceiling. Bought decorative molding at Lowes 1 1/4" wide. Then took a cupboard door to Sherwin Williams and they matched the tint perfect. Stained and glued and brad nailed up, looks like it has always been there and really dressed up the look.
