I am chasing down leaks in our 84 Toyota Dolphin. There has been damage in the past and I found another during tonight deluge. The ceiling appears to be a plywood / panaling sort of affare. It has buckled in some places due to water damage. Simply repaintingwould not get rid of the lump and bumps.

I suppose that I could simply repanel. Weight and getting around "things" goes against that option.

I am thinking papering. Sand the bumps down and fill in any recesses then paper over. Anything wrong with this?

We are in the same boat, we pulled down ceiling panelling to find soaking wet insulation and some rotten wood too. So, we are going to have to reframe, reinsulate and repanel after making sure all leaks are taken care of. If you only fix the surface, the damage may continue to get worse underneath (and possibly get a nasty mould problem.) Are you planning on keeping your unit for a long time? We are fixing ours up properly so we can sell in a couple years and move up.

My two cents!

I intend to fix the roof and then, when I am confident that it is right, fix the ceiling. We think we will keep her for a while.
