2013 28DSBH -Separated Laminate Strip on Top Bunk

The laminate strip that covers the wood on the outside of the top bunk bed has separated and won't hold in place with staples. It's a curved piece, which complicates things, as does that fact that it can easily be grabbed by kids climbing to the top bunk. It's also an important piece, since it directly faces the interior of the RV and is very unsightly if hanging loose or if it falls off. When it's hanging loose, it also interferes with opening the bathroom door. Any suggestions on how to best re-attach it so it will stay in place? Thanks.

Thanks Grumpy. Multiple staples wont hold it right now, so I'm not sure if glue will, unless there's a recommendation for a specific type maybe. Since the piece is curved, there is upward pressure which immediately and directly opposes the glue, with no real way to clamp the piece in place while glue is setting. Thanks again though!

I'd use gorilla glue and clamore it until it cures. It will hold, but it is critical to be clamped to ensure a good bond.

Oh yeah, I didn't see the comment amount not being able to clamp it, sorry I am reading this on my phone without my glasses. Maybe use duct tape to temporarily hold until it cures?

I believe the adhesive that holds that on is heat activated. Maybe running an iron over it with a rag between the laminate and the iron will help. Or some decorative (upholstery) screws from Ace Hardware can hold it in place.

I've had real good luck with this 3M adhesive on projects such as yours.
