Carawagon interior roof covering

Post by Welshcarawagon » Sat May 11, 2019 6:05 pm

Does anyone have an idea of how to seal the fury
Roof covering ? It’s in quite good condition but if u touch it it sheds! Had thought of strong hair spray!
Any ideas welcomed!

I found vacuuming mine helped.

Even after a good vacuum, there are still plenty of fibres and it still looks ok.


Looking forward to pictures of your first Carawagon camping trip :gold:

Wear goggles when vacuuming or brushing the roof though - looking up into a falling cloud of tiny glass fibres is asking for trouble!

I don't think they are glass fibres - they wouldn't be absorbent if they were :cheers:

My wife brushed it today(made a bit of a mess!)
And then sprayed heavy duty hair spray!
Seems to be better - time will tell!
