Has anyone had this problem? The covering overhead has developed what looks like air bubbles between the vinyl head liner and the overhead insulation.
Seems to be speading in different spots.
Any suggestions?
Thanks.

Larry, Your glue is dying and your headliner needs to be replaced. Go find a headliner replacement place.

Headliner separation was a rather common problem with '94 and '95 Vectras, particularly when stored in hot southern climates.

At best you might attempt to carefully reheat the glue with a hot iron utilizing towels between the iron and the headliner in an attempt to re-secure the headliner. Beyond that, you are faced with rather expensive altermative.

Thanks for all the advice.
First I'll try the iron and if that dosen't work I'll try injecting new glue.

I have a 1995 Adventurer and we are in the awful process of replacing the headliner. We have scraped the old foam off and will hire someone to redo the ceiling. This is the second Winnebago that has had this problem and I will never buy another one with this problem. Hope you can fix yours easier than we did. Kay

Larry,

A hot iron may temporarily make it look better but will speed up the deterioration of the foam backing which is what is breaking down. This is not just a Winnebago problem but effects all motorhomes and automobiles that are in the Southern States and have a foam backed headliner.

Regards,
