RV ceiling panel replacement

The camper I recently bought was leaking around the antenna, this caused the wood under the rubber roof in that area to rot and also caused a small area of the ceiling panel to bubble pretty badly. I plan to replace the whole rubber roof but I also removed a 2 foot by the width of the campers section(8 ft)of the interior ceiling out and will need to replace it. The material looks to be a sheet of 1/8th plywood or Luan covered by a white film of sorts, almost the look of cheap drop ceiling panels but thinner. I have looked in the home building centers and have not found anything that will match up very close. Can anyone point me to a place I may be able to get a close replacement panel. I would appreciate any help or ideas. Thank you

Tree, mine has that thin ply on ceiling and Roof Thinnest stuff I’ve ever seen in large sheets ... and probably the cheapest too ... Probably imported for it’s “price point” ... I’ve looked everywhere but can only find “good" plywood that thin at Aircraft Spruce ... Plywood from Aircraft Spruce But then they only carry aircraft grade ... the stuff in trailers is more like “pallet” grade ... (cheap) .. Hanging around at the RV repair shop, I saw only the cheap stuff used on even the Big MCs that were in for repair for leaks/Rot... ... all with various wallpaper looking stuff over it ... Probably only available from the RV dealer ... at a Premium...

The best place to get panels is at a rv dealer. They get them from the manufacturers for warrenty repairs and may have some leftover sheets. Maybe you can work out a deal. You can get the paneling at all-rite.com but it is pricey and the shipping really adds to the cost.
