Bigfoot adhesive recommendations

Iím repairing the right rear corner jack stand support on my 1989 Bigfoot truck camper. There was some water damage that resulted in the jack stand support post getting soft and the top shell bottom shell backing strip getting soft as well. Iíve removed the rear closet to the bare shell and am
Now planning to reassemble. Iím looking for recommendations for the adhesive to fasten the support post to the shell, contact cement to fasten the styrofoam to the shell and the 1/8Ē plywood to the styrofoam.

The original contact cement seems to be a red water based contact cement. Iím planning to replace the old support with a similar 1/2Ē + 5/16Ē plywood lamination glued and screwed.

Any recommendations and sharing of similar repair would be appreciated.

Hi Rsmacdo

I am presently repairing the sagged roof on my 1980 Bigfoot 17'. After I installed the roof supports I used Lepage's PL Construction Adhesive to glue 2.5" x 1" wood straps to the ceiling. I will be using the same adhesive installing the 1" styrofoam Between the wood straps. And when I finish the ceiling I have the option of using the West System 610 Expoxy Adhesive instead of Lepage's Construction Adhesive to install the cover board. Hope this helps.
