Roof - Veltrim or flocking?

Post by scottie » Mon, 10 Jul 2017, 5:57 pm

Anyone had their roof flocked? I read that this is what they had originally.

I see most people are using Veltrim, but I get the feeling it will sag eventually, or is there a new super adhesive that wont let it ?

Mine's original flocking, and if I had a roof that I had to choose what to do with, I would go flocking every time.

I've felt the weight of a roof after it's been Veltrim'ed and it's considerably heavier, as if it's not hard enough to do the second lift of the roof already!
Wanted: Any original Portafold, Ansfold or Mini-Motel brochures, adverts or magazine articles.
Also, any chassis numbers for the above caravans!
