Drop Ceiling

Hello everyone,

Looking for advise on how to drop the ceiling in my 2001 HR Endeavor. I want to replace the center lights and add individual spot lights in the front of the coach. The ceiling has 4 or 5ft sections with a strip that goes from one side of the wall to the other. I am unsure how to take the ceiling down and don't what to make things worse by pulling things out. You knowledge and advise are very welcome.

Most times in RVs the ceiling panel goes over top of the wall, and can be a PIA to remove .
Can you get a look at the joint between the wall and ceiling in the back of a cupboard to confirm that's how your coach is built?
If you can avoid removing the ceiling that's the way to proceed.

Chances are those strips are just covering seams and the ceiling may not actually come down after removing them. Construction techniques vary, though, and I'm not sure how HR's were built in the 2001 time frame.

There is a lot more to your ceiling than what you see from below.
