Ceiling fabric falling down

I have a 1992 Winnabego Adventurer. Just purchased in Oct. The ceiling fabric is coming out of the joints and sagging badly. Had the dealer repair, they re-glued it last week, now it had fallen down again and the other seams have now also come apart and are sagging. The black foam material that the white vinyl shoud adhear to is very sticky but if when push on it it compresses and does not expand back.

Would appreciate any help in how to repair.

I had the same thing on a 1995 Vectra. took it to the factory and this is what they did.They got flexable wood strips the width of the coach plus the bend then they put the strips every 16 inches frount to back. It looked great. Slight bellows between the strips but still looked great. Finish the strips before you put them up. Good luck.

Thanks, but can't quite picture that in this coach. If the factory did repairs why didn't they just replace the ceiling with new underlay and fabric?

They would have had to take all the cabnets down and work around the walls. Comes a point when the repaire would have cost about 25% of the coach value. Not worth it at that point. It became a great trade in and I now have a 2008 Journey.

The only way to repair the problem to original look is to replace the ceiling material which is a foam backed vinyl. The foam is deteriorated and gluing will not hold. It is an expensive and tedious job as sip has stated. Wish it was better news for you.

Thank you. I have investigated with local high end uphoster here in Edmonton, has done 5 this year so far. Just as you say, cost here is $3000 to replace the headliner. Problem is that vehicles subject to exterme cold like here cause the vinyl to lose the bond with the glued on foam backing. No amount of spay glue will work. What bad news for me as it looks terrrible. I looked at a 2005 model that was in the shop, exactly the same problem.
