Check for water damage. Once that is resolved, there are very strong spray adhesives on the market that might suit your needs.

Vinyl ceiling? I've seen luan panels but ok.
Well, either the adhesive is bad or the staples are falling out.

From my knowledge this is pretty common on Winnebagos the glue fails from excess heat I have done a temp fix with white thumb tacks. Not the greatest of repairs but it does the trick

No water damage, I think heat is the cause. I'm thinking some sort of spray adhesive, poke a hole in it and insert one of those tube nozzles, just don't want to go down a road that makes it worse.

Most of the vinyl ceiling coverings I have seen in motorhomes is basically the same material as used in car headliners. The vinyl is backed with a thin layer of foam and contact type adhesive attaches the material to the backer board. Unfortunately, heat will after time cause the foam to degrade and turn into powdery material. Once this happens there is no way to reattach the headliner as glue will not stick to the powder and the only way to repair it is to replace it. This is either a very expensive or time consuming and dirty job to do yourself. The old liner must be pulled off, the remaining foam scraped from the backer board, and new material glued to the backer board with spray adhesive. I recently spoke to a neighbor at a campground who had this done for the entire ceiling in his 36' Journey and he paid in the neighborhood of $3000 to have a carpet type material applied professionally.
