New Roof Glue

I am repairing/replacing the roof on my 2005 Winnebago Adventurer, Model 38J. What kind of adhesive do I use to glue the wood to the Styrofoam? I replaced the wood panels on top and the glue I have tried out have not worked. What type of adhesive would y'all recommend using and putting down on top of the sytrofoam for the wood to stick too?

Winnebago has a web site where one of the threads is all about the adhesives they use on the RV. Check there first. I'd be looking to find out if they use any, I wonder why it would be needed as the roof components generally need to be able to slide and shift relative to each other as you're driving up hill and down dale. Especially at an angle up/down driveways of sometimes substantial height.

Here is a YT video showing a Winnebago roof replacement. At minute 20:37 the tech gets into the glueing down of the new roof. He is using Stabond E183 Red. I hope this helps.

One owner that redid roof he was real happy with new thin Insta-foam type construction adhesive. One can/tube goes as far as like 8 tubes of liquid nails.
