235 ceiling problems

I have a 2006 235 and the cloth ceiling is bubbling. Any ideas to reattach? The loose sections are about 2-4" in diameter.

Never had the problem but have thought about it though in the past. Only thing I can think of is an insulin syringe with a thin glue you could use to inject glue into the bubble through the material.

In cars, they use a rubber cement to make the headliners stay up. A syringe or a exato knife to make small slits in the bubble and then use Q-tips to smear glue in the unglued area. Used to do that in used cars with the ceiling cloths coming down. Work fast as rubber cement seals when it makes contact with each other.

I would want to know why it is bubbling in the first place ! Maybe moisture, if so you might have a (potentially) quite serious problem.

There are no signs of moisture and the roof is in good shape. The motorhome is from Phoenix. Maybe heat?

We have a similar problem in our 2003 235, though the ceiling cloth in ours has even larger loose spots than yours. Also there is no evidence of moisture having caused the bubbles. I've had too many other things to fix and improve to have bothered with it as of yet, but will follow your fix.
