Mike, the placement of your velcro strip is much lower than where mine is. Maybe that is the problem? Look how much higher mine is attached, well above the hinge mechanism and roof trim. It could be simple physics of less "pull away" on the cloth of where it's placed flatter than at an weighted angle?

The velcro attachment is placed higher on my trailer than what is shown in Mike's trailer. It's a few inches above the hinge plate/trim, at the lower part of roof panel (not on the edge end).

Just to clarify, the Velcro sticks onto the white roof about an inch above the hinge.

Right, that's what I am saying... mine measures 5" above. Maybe before you make holes in the roof panel, you just adjust to attach a little higher? It's worth a shot before resorting to more aggressive attachment methods.

Not a potter. I was a tile contractor and mud floors were a type of installation. Therefore the name.

Just read through this thread as the cloth covers on my 2014 A-122S also come unattached. So, has it worked to apply stronger Velcro higher on the wall panels for those with this persistent issue?

Also, do you also have to replace the Velcro on the fabric ~ or only on the walls?

I'm wondering if SuperGlue might be a solution? Does anyone have feedback on this idea?
Thanks!

Keep sticking it back up when it falls. Every time I open my camper it's down on one side , the bed side. Once I stick it back up it usually lasts thru the camp out. 3 to 4 days.

It was $20 on Amazon, Home Depot has it also but only in Black and I ordered it in White online and it was cheaper.
I did order the commercial grade Velcro from amazon in white and put it on and it lasted months and now is falling off again. I even tried epoxy on the ends but no help. I am about to resort to small screws on the ends and middle since nothing stays on for long.
