sagging roof lining
« on: October 21, 2017, 03:06:54 PM »
How can I repair a sagging roof lining at the front cab overhead area of my 2006 Winnebago View. If the lining/roof has the come down, how?

There are some prior topics here discussing the solution. Click the Search button above and use the search term "sagging ceiling" (with quotes) or "headliner" (no need for quotes).

The foam backing on the headliner is disintegrating and basically the fix it to pull it off and replace.

does anyone know if this happens to all Winnabegos of that era?  I just bought this 2005 Vectra but I did see some in the 2004-2006 range that had sagging ceilings.  Not sure if it was a batch of bad adhesive or a bad adhesive choice.  I hate think mine is just waiting to fall.

It is currently firmly attached except in one tiny area in a cabinet.

It's not a problem.  It's a project!

It's the nature of the beast; In my other half's re-modelling business (mainly boats and homes), we see lots of disintegrating foam.

Ours are not sagging but perhaps that's because we keep the interior between 55-85 degrees when we're not using the Horizon.

I just made a post in another thread about this material that would be a good replacement. Its called Grospoint and is a very short loop pile material that is quite durable. The other thread gets into his repair and how he glued the material he used, in place. Remember how auto headliners droop and fall down? Same thing, foam backed material. In fact, auto headliner materials will work quite well.
