I have a 95 Winnebago Brave that the fabric material on the ceiling has started comming loose. No leaks, the foam it's glued to is starting to deteriorate. Has anyone else had this problem and how did you repair ? I tried glue but that only holds temporarily.

rocky c, welcome to iRV2.com. We are glad to have you join us here. You will find we are a friendly bunch here and like to help each other where we can. The vinyl foam backed ceiling material will have to be replaced. You will have to remove all vent and lights and remove the old down to the luan and then use a spray adhesive to put up the new. Originally it was on the ceiling before cabinet were up. It can be done with cabinet removed or not. If not you may want to put up a quarter round trim at the edges. Good luck and keep u sposted.

Had the same problem with my 95 Brave. I took out as many cabinets and walls as i could (lights too), pulled off the old material, scraped off the old foam and glue( put down plastic sheeting everywhere), and rescraped ceiling after spraying with turpentine(cleaned down to the wood). Sprayed the ceiling and headliner material with high temp contact cement and tucked the ends in. I have a post on RV.net showing pictures of the work .

Thanks for the replies. I'm not sure if I'll do it myself, or have it done. If I do give it a try, how do you remove the metal cross pieces that cover the seems, or can you work around them ?

The cross pieces on mine are plastic and once you get a corner started they just pop out, it takes a piece of wood and hammer to snap them back into place. I cut my headliner material to fix between each one of the ceiling beams and then just snapped the plastic piece back into position. If you work alone it will take a while, if you have helpers it will go faster. Just remember if you clean all the old glue off with thinner give it a couple days for the thinner to evaporate before spraying on the glue.

Hey 1995 Brave,

You put in a lot of work, but it sure turned out beautifully. I couldn't help noticing your driver, do you pay in Milkbones?!! I also noticed his/her seat-belt harness. We have 2 standard Schnauzers that we buckle up with the same type harnesses; great invention and peace of mind. We use them in and out of our coach while driving anytime. Now that our two boys are grown and have families of their own, the dogs are our "little kids" we watch out for. BTW, did you take your dog to the "Dog Whisperer" driving school?! An extra driver always helps!!

Happy travels,
Sparetire
