    I ordered the Pugs for my camper back when I first got it and had the velcro added when I ordered it. I found the Industrial strength velcro in 1.5" wide rolls 15 feet long in walmart's craft section. It was $20. I stripped off the hook part of the roll) cause the soft side is what Bob sews to the Pugs, folded it in 1/2 and cut it into 2 parts, each about 7.5' long. The next part is a 2-person job. Stapled it to the back "lip" of my roof in the pop up right near the aluminum trim. It was plenty long to reach side-to-side.The adhesive helped hold it in place as we stapled it. Then did the other side.

    Time will tell how it holds up. So far so good. (anyone need 15' of just the hook side of the velcro??!)

    Best way to apply it to the inside of the roof lid, is in two or three sections. And as you did, a combo of the adhesive and staples.
