I am replacing the interior of my 87 starcraft roof and between the styrofoam and the interior panel is a material similar to drywall tape where the interior panels butt together. It appears to be there for the staples to have something to grab on to. Any ideas as to what it is or what I can use?
Thanks for any info.
Jon

Possibly the open mesh-type drywall tape OR a high quality duct tape. There are many levels of duct tape. Most are crap as the glue "dies" quite quickly. What I am talking about is a professional high quality (expensive) duct tape. If you have the room, you might want to add some Reflectix heat barrier (1/8" thick foil buble wrap looking stuff). We did thast in our pop-up. It made the difference between burning our hands on the metal interior struts and being able to leave our hand on it with outside temps in the upper 90's.
