Interior repair

We've just purchased a 2005 Safari Bambi. The interior liner on walls and ceiling are separating from the surface. My first thought in repair is to enter the gap after removing the ceiling fan trim and spraying an adhesive on both the liner and the trailer skin, waiting for the two side to dry and using a roller to press the two back together. Please for anyone's else's remedies. The previous owner said it wasn't uncommon for that year and model!

I had an old car that I had inherited and the headliner was sagging. I tried gluing it back and the glue soaked through and looked awful. I had a professional do it right. Perhaps a spray on glue, lightly applied would work, but I don't know.

You do have a splendid name.

Repair depends on what component of the structure has failed. If the urethane foam that cushions and holds the inner fabric to the wall has degraded, then new adhesive will not help. If there is no foam and the adhesive has failed, then spray contact adhesive will work.

It may not be worth worrying about. There are several spots in our '00 19' Bambi where the "mouse fur" is loose from the ceiling in about one square foot areas around where the a/c is. it's been like that since we bought it almost five years ago, and has not changed. Unless it is pulling loose in large areas, you might just keep an eye on it, and live with it for now.

Thanks for the response. I didn't think about an inner layer of foam. I'll look further.

I'm looking forward to learning alot in this forum.
