I purchased the wood grain foam tiles to install in an older fiberglass camp trailer. My question is what is the best type of adhesive to glue them to vertical (sides) and horizontal (ceiling) so that they stay put

Hi Tom,

That’s a great place to use foam tiles. We recommend using a mat tape like this one that has an aggressive adhesive. You want a super durable vinyl tape with a strong adhesive that is still removable without causing any damage or leaving a residue. Our mat tape also offers a strong bond in a wide range of temperatures and can be applied easily.

Good luck with your project!
