I've had no problem with velcro on my 2012 rockwood a124. It will be four years old this summer.

Wow, the velcro in ours is strong as anything. My wife even thinks that it works a bit too well :P Sorry to hear that you had issues, but glad that you found a solution...

The covers over the hinges on my 2014 A126S were off when the dealer showed it to us. The Dealer fixed it when it was delivered to us and by the time we got it home it was off again. I am thinking about stapling the Velcro in place like the circles on the curtains.

We've camped in extreme weather temperatures and had no issue. BTW, Forest River did use commercial velcro in mine.

I have no complaints. I feel I bought a quality product to begin with. I never expected to be problem free, but sure happy it has been. Sorry to hear your ownership hasn't been great.
Thanks Handbuilder, I have only owned mine for for 6 months and I have had to re cauk the big bubble window for leaking and re install my microwave that was falling out and now the velcro problem. I do love my A frame but it must have been put together on a friday afternoon as I have had my share of problems. It does pay to be handy when you own any trailer and life goes on.

I put a Auto signature on my notes now. A194HW 2004

On our new T21HWQB the front end Velcro doesn't stick. The rear seems to be holding. I got a new Velcro strip from dealer. Went home and cleaned all the old sticky off with Goof Off. Then cleaned with alcohol. Then put on the new sticky side Velcro. All looked good. But, within an hour, it was pealing again.
Does FR proved a better solution? Or anyone else have any ideas?

I think I'll try the staple method next.

I am not grasping where someone would staple the hinge cover? On the roof panel? Maybe they've changed the location of where they apply the covers. Here's a photo of where the velcro on my hinge covers are located.

How about a photo to show us where the velcro in your trailer is/was attached?

Poor velcro does not stick

Same problem with my roof hinges. The front curtain has held up; the rear one kept falling off. I finally put a few small, short screws through it and it has held up fine since then.

I'd call Loc-tite's consumer help line, 800.624.7767, describe the material and texture as best you can and ask for an adhesive recommendation. They undoubtedly have something that will bind Velcro to the plastic ceiling panels. You may have to go to Fastenal or Grainger to get it. As you've already experienced, removability without damage to the panel is a key factor in adhesive selection so be sure to ask about that, too.

Here are a few pictures of the Velcro coming loose. I'm not sure if the new was industrial type. Doesn't appear to be. Kinda hard to se clearly. Any help is appreciated.The black is the hinge and spring mechanism.
