Ceiling headliner unglooing

I have a 2010 Georgetown 350TS. I'm having the headliner unglooing and bubbling down all thruout the unit. There's no water damage. I got a upholstery repairman to check it out, he says it's a glue issue. I called the factory and sent them pictures, they told me I have two choices, they could send me the vynil fabric for me to install which is not easy or they said they would repair it if I drove it to Elkhart Indiana from Miami Florida. They would split the gas bill but I would have to get a hotel for a couple of days until the repair is done. Is there a better solution to this issue? And if there's anyone with such a problem?

Tony it sounds like you have a few choices.
If you have the time and money I'd head to Elkhart if you want it done better than it is. If it is at Elkhart if they find something wrong that you don't see now they will fix it also. It just may be a leak you didn't know about.

Good luck

See my post from back in 2010.

Sagging ceiling headliners

Here’s an update on my post from 9-2-2010……

I may be the only owner having this issue, but I suggest checking your ceiling headliners to make sure they are firmly adhered to the ceiling.

All of the panels in my 2010 GT 378TS are sagging. The panels that have light fixtures, smoke detectors, speakers, etc. screwed to the ceiling appeared OK, but sagged when these items were removed. When I first noticed the problem, I thought it was a shadow that was being cast by the way it looked. When I pushed the panel back up on the ceiling, it was “tacky” sounding but would drop back down in a very short time.

Fortunately I’m still in warranty, I purchased my unit in January, 2010.

My dealer got with FR and FR gave the OK to replace/repair and re-glue ALL the ceiling panels. FR stated that it must have been bad adhesive used in my unit. Don’t know if the adhesive used is in bulk or if it is one-on-one batch adhesive per unit manufactured. Dealer said the process will take 5-7 days.

I hope I’m the only one having this problem. My GT 378TS is a great MH, but these things do happen. Happy Camping!

UPDATE: It happened a 2nd time. Fixed ???? by dealer.......They are now sagging a 3rd time...Bad dealer repair ????????. I don't know???? I think you would be better served by going to the factory for repairs.

We took our 09 Georgetown back to the factory for a cracked fiberglass roof they did a excellent job.Rick. the service manager also did a full pdi on the coach and the stairs were not functioning properly so he replaced them. And a door stop fell off in the hallway they replaced the wall.I recommend taking the trip if you have the time.

We had the same problem we purchased our 2011 378 from Lazy Days in Florida and "they" noticed it at delivery, they contacted Forrest River and got ok to replace full ceiling. They did an excellent job.

Ceiling headliner unglooing Update

Took coach to Lazy Days, they contacted FR and they are handling this issue under warranty. At no charge. It should take around 3 weeks. Will keep you all updated on the progress.

headliner falling down

I have a 2010 georgetown 373 motorhome, the heaqdliner is falling down, I talked to a service person at the factory, and they said " we have some problems with the glue used in the past and we have changed brands of glue to sta-put". I asked what type, and thier reply was they didn't know. I realize that I might be out of warrenty, but if forestriver was using a product that failed don't they have some responsibiity here? I want to know what will work??? and what and how to repair please.

Hi Larry. where do you reside? Forest River offered to repair at no cost if I would take it to Elkhart, Indiana but for me its a long drive so I took it to Lazy Days in Tampa where they dealt with Forest River and the will pay for the repair and send the dealer the materials free of charge to me even with no warranty. They've been a class act so far. Will keep you posted. They begin repairs the week of 7-23-12.

Forestriver has decided to do what is right for my ceiling falling down and take care of the failure of the glue used at time of mfg. we are relived as this would cost a good sum of money, we are pleased so far and the reps. have been pleasent to deal with, Oh yes we live in california and the repair facility is about 40 miles away, that's close for us. will advise when complete in about 2 to 3 weeks.

I too live in Calif and have a 2010 Georgetown 378 that has many issues including the ceiling liner sagging. Just took it to J&L in Fontana, The owner there says he has repaired several with same problem. FR wants pics first. Also have "punky" soft roof over driver corner that needs to be pulled up to fix. Long list. Matt
