How to Install Headliner Material
Transform the look of your RV, camper or boat by installing a new headliner. Much like a new coat of paint, a new headliner can instantly modernize and update the look of your RV or boat’s interior. In today’s video tutorial, we’ll show you how to measure and install a new headliner in an RV. Whether you have an RV, trailer, boat or car, you can use these same techniques for your headliner installation. Let’s get started.
First, let’s talk about headliner options available at Sailrite®. You can use vinyl upholstery fabric as headliner fabric, or you can choose between foam-backed vinyl headliner and carpet-style headliner. Whatever look you’re going for, we’ve got a headliner option that will work for you.
We chose Morbern® Seabrook Foam Backed Headliner for the RV in our Airstream Argosy RV Renovation Series. This material is the same as Morbern Seabrook upholstery vinyl but with a high-quality, flame-adhered 3/16-inch foam backing. We went with a white headliner; opting for a light color can brighten the small space, make your ceiling look taller, and make your RV look bigger and roomier.
Although measuring and installing a new headliner might seem like a daunting task, it’s not as difficult as you might think. Our video will walk you through the whole process. Even a DIY novice will be able to tackle this project. The video will cover steps including:
