What glue to re attach black edging?

Hi, What glue/adhesive should I use in my 2007 Intl to reattach the black edging on the bathroom walls and kitchen? Im sure its something simple from Home Depot or Lowes but wanted to check first.
Thanks

I have used contact cement to re-attach laminate before. I am guessing that is what the factory used (actually, a call to the Airstream service center might be a good idea as they will have a definitive answer for you, just a thought....). When I really want it to stay I will clean the previous glue with whatever solvent I have around (lacquer thinner, acetone) scuff the surface with some sandpaper and use West System Epoxy. Once attached with West the edging is going to stay. I avoid the 5 minute type epoxy's for this type of repair as they are just not the same.

If you decide to use West or something like it be careful as any that is not cleaned up immediately can be pretty permanent.

Anytime i need to reattach something i use 3m automotive tape available at lordco etc.Used for attaching trim on cars. Its a grey double sided tape with a red plastic peel off outer . Great stuff and can use it in many many applications.

Doesn't that leave a gap? I work with that tape all the time and it is great fro things like badges where there was tape to begin with but on edge trim?
Never tried it there myself so I can't be critical....
