Ok, I am really struggling to find Velcro that will hold to the camper. I swear I got industrial strength. Are you guys gluing this stuff on?

That's odd. I used the white industrial strength, didn't do anything but wipe the area down with rubbing alcohol first. Slapped it in place. I did let it sit for a day before I finished up. Have not had issues yet with it. Don't see why you couldn't glue it on. They make a glue for velcro but I don't know if it's any different than other glues.

If you haven't ready done it, also get a roll of Reflectix and cut panels to fit in the zippered windows in the bunks. Between Reflectix in the windows and pugs on the top, you will notice a huge difference both in the heat of summer and the cool fall / winter nights.

DK,
I finally got the Reflectix cut and the PUGS up and WOW what a difference! Thanks for the advice.

PUGs- Popup Gizmos
solar blankets made for popups and hybrids to regulate temps in the canvas bed ends. also helps keep the canvas clean and darkens the tent ends for late risers or afternoon naps.

Google their website, they've been around a long time.

but they aren't known outside the popup/hybrid community.

Maybe I just have a bad batch of Velcro with terrible adhesive. I am going to try a different type and if that doesn't hold I am going back to clipping.

Thanks for the explanation. I've seen the term used several times and just knew you weren't referring to dogs. Lol

Vader,
I bought the industrial strength from Lowes. It did begin to peel away at the ends but I did have a bit of a strain on it. I left it alone for 24 hours and, so far, it hasn't budged.
