Picked up my 1st project motorhome

I just recently acquired a 1990 Winnebago Chieftain. Its in really good shape. Needs work in areas and one of those areas is the ceiling drooping.
I was wondering what people are replacing the ceiling material with?
With as much work as I plan on doing I will make a project post soon.

Is the actual ceiling sagging, or the covering?

Just the cover detached from the foam.
Common issue apparently.
Was just wondering what people used to recover.

Remove drooping cover, scrape off foam, clean , and then use self-adhesive carpet tile for ceiling worked real well on my '94 Vectra.

in your bathroom, you should consider using an FRP panel from Home Depot, Lowes, etc. This is a thin but tough, textured fiberglass 4' x 8' panel that costs under $30 in white or beige. l used this on the bathroom ceiling of my 2002 Suncruiser 35U and will probably do the same on the bathroom walls. IMHO a soft headliner has no place in a bathroom/shower area.
