Interior lining coming unglued?

I have a 1996 Classic 34 foot limited edition trailer with the white foam backed interior roof lining it is coming unglued on both sided where the rounded roof areas are.
Has anyone had a similar problem?
Does anyone know of a quick fix?

I talked to someone several years ago who said that Airstream had experimented with an adhesive which subsequently failed; can't remember who it was but I do remember being in the Airstream and all of the vinyl lining was hanging down. You might call the Airstream factory for more info, and I'm sure other members will chime in with more info.

Welcome to the Forums, by the way!
Use the search function here...the blue menu line above. There have been many others with the problem. Recently I have seen a couple of interesting fixes. Adhesives just don't seem to work by themselves.
"If it can't be reduced, reused, repaired, rebuilt, refurbished, refinished, resold, recycled or composted
then it should be restricted, redesigned or removed from production."

There doesn't seem to be a great fix. Like Melody Ranch said, search around; there are a bunch of threads on it. I have a project underway in mine to remove it panel is finished, but we haven't moved on the project in several months (too busy using the camper! ...yeah, that's it). This reminds me I was supposed to get pictures of the "after" and haven't done that yet.

Hate to say it but your problem was pretty common on the 34's built during the 90's. I don't think the entire decade was bad but there was a year(s) that have shown this problem.

Here's on thread on the topic.
