Ceiling replacement

I have recently purchased a 1997 Aluma-Lite 32', with slide. The slide had leaked but the source of the leak had been repaired. Although the coach is very usable, the ceiling is sagging a bit and there is reason to believe it is because of rot in the panel backing. I could not readily see how the ceiling is mounted to the frame above. Does anyone know how to go about changing or repairing the ceiling?

Have been wondering about this type repair myself--the ceiling in our Suites (luckily no leaks) doesn't have any apparent attachment points, just ribs to cover the panel joints.
How ARE ceiling panels attached to the RV roofs?

This is a 2000 Holiday Rambler. The trim strips that cover the ceiling panel seams are t-molding inserted into a matching u-shaped piece on top. Everything is glued to the roof framing. This view is the edge of the refrigerator exhaust vent.
