Having problems with door frame attaching to canvas sides

I have a 04 eagle popup. Ever since I bought it I have had problems with getting the canvas side walls to attach to the door frame. It looks like it should slip into the channel in the frame but it won't stay in. Is there something that slips in to hold it or am I missing something? I've been using duck tape to hold it in but that is really getting old. Any advise is greatly appreciated.

Exact same issue here on my 1994 1006, I searched the forum but didn't find much. Let me know if you find an answer, besides Velcro or Duct Tape

I have a 1996 1207. Have had problems attaching the canvas to the door since I bought it. I have been using duct tape but thinking of trying to add Velcro. Has anyone done this? How do I attach it?

I've tried the Velcro option but as soon as it starts getting humid the adhesive backing that holds it on starts to give way and its back to the duck tape. Wonder if I could sew the Velcro on.

Sewing it on was my first thought. Crazy glue was my second thought. I have the same issue with the rear side of the door. Everytime I came back to the camper, the canvas was detached from the the inside channel. The other side holds good. Maybe the channel has widened over the years. I assumed strong wind help blow it in.

I had a different brand years ago and I found that you had to pull the canvas a little farther than U think you have to. when you get it in the channel it should be FLAT against the wall.

I will measure to see if the channel is widened up at all. If need be I will squeeze it a bit to close the gap. Anyone ever try upholstery buttons?

So. After reading seann45's comment it got me to thinking. And looking. So as it turns out the previous owner showed me how to do it incorrectly. He had been doing it with duct tape to. I wasn't trying to fold into the slot. I was just trying to put the lip into it. Now the fun part is getting off the duct tape and Velcro adhesive residue. Bring on the googone.

Thanks for the comments

On my 1998 I can get it in the channel but it tends to pop out. I bought some rope today that I'm going to stick in the channel after setup. We'll see this weekend how it goes.
