gluing closed cell foam to fiberglass

We are proud new owners of a 1975 Trillium 1300. Previous owners stripped the ensolite lining from the trailer interior, which led to indoor condensation, we discovered. We just purchased several sheets of closed cell foam to redo the whole interior, and are looking for the right glue to use. Any suggestions?
Also, the foam is lined (smooth) on one side. Is that the side we glue to the wall? Can the more "bubbly" side be painted?

3M 77 Super Adhesive.

I like this stuff for contact adhesion. Works very well and makes a very strong bond. Not the cheapest stuff, but if you want to do it only once and be done with it...

Weldwood Contact Cement - easy, permanent, and the bond is incredibly strong. It will eat certain kinds of foam like Styrofoam, but most everything else is good to go. I just redid a trim piece with contact cement after the Super 77 adhesive I originally used failed.

I have used this from Canadian tire. It is rated for headliners so the heat will not be a problem...

You should use 3M Super 90 it has a higher temperature rating than 3M 77
The fiberglass in direct sunlight gets extremely hot. Its a little harder to find though. You can check the ratings on the 3m website.

If you can find it use Sta Put , it is superior to all the others listed In my opinion , I've used them all as a cabinet maker and after using Sta Put the others pale in comparison
