Sagging Winnebago Ceiling

Creampuff 95 Adventururer 30wq -amazingly nice interior-except ceiling. Fabric glue has failed and sagging in many places. Looking for advice on how to redo/replace ceiling to "better than new" condition. What works? What does not? Upgrade material? How to secure it....etc.

WannaB,

I will refer you to the posts of a fellow RV'er in the HiLo forum who did a complete rebuild of his ceiling. There are [3] pages with pics explaining how he did it and it also shows his homemade apparatus to hold the ceiling panel in place during the gluing operation. His ceiling work was done due to water damage. Could that be what caused your ceiling to sag?

Good Luck.

My 96 Itasca is doing the same thing, the glue that is on the vinyl for the foam pad is what failed. I purchased a 36ft roll of Boat hull liner, this is what is used on a lot of newer RV's. When you do this make sure the glue you get is High temp. Then remove all the upper cabinets and furniture and get ready for the dirty job of scraping the old foam off so you have clean surface for the new glue to adhere to.

Thanks jcurtis95! My ceiling was due to adhesive failure/foam backing deterioration.

Thanks for the info. Does this material not have the foam backing? Does it absorb less road/cabin noise?

Do it does not have a foam backing, it like a thin carpet. If you go to a RV dealer you can look at the newer ones, I have seen it in 99 and up models. I have buddy with 96 DP and it is on his.
