when I redid the ceiling liner cloth on my Puma build, I used wood strips, including one along the outside edge.  That's a good way to do your velcro.  I did have to loosen the latches a turn or 3 to compensate for the extra 1/8" or so.

Early 2000 years it was a pay option to have the Cold weather pack prep if you wanted the top hanging velcro installed at the factory. If you bought the whole package then you were set. Then later you could add the artic pac material or make your own.

If the prep was not paid for then you have a camper like yours with nothing.

Later FWC made this option standard for all campers.

 

Thanks for that, Patrick.  That makes a lot of sense. FWC has done the same with other things-- like screen doors, solar pre-wiring and extended cabover.

My canvas also has the sticky back velcro issues from the factory - adhesive softened and leaked all over the place... Any suggestions on cleaning that up? It's really just a cosmetic blemish more than an issue. I'm thinking MEK or the like (carefully of course).

My experiences with  3M Adhesive Remover and also with Citra-Solv.  I came to the conclusion that the 3M stuff worked a bit better but it might be smarter to use Citra-Solv if you're concerned about the strong chemical fumes (particularly inside the camper). 

 

Good luck!

Just make sure you coat it with 303 protectant when you are done.
