    Interior Roof lining on my Hymer is showing signs of coming unstuck, as its got a foam padding I would have to be careful in applying a suitable adhesive, have any Funsters carried out this type of repair, and if so could offer any advice on glue types.

    I haven't done it but you should be OK to use carpet adhesive.
    It's a spray-on contact type that you apply to both surfaces and put them together when they are touch dry.

    cheap spray on glue fails when it is heated up. you get in the van on a hot summers day and the ceiling has sagged. clear copydex is great for small areas or contact adhesive for a large area.
