Skin? You mean ceiling paneling? Paper? Fabric? Vinyl?

I'd like to know as well.
It seems to me that most RV's I have been in over the past 15 years have a similar product on the ceiling. I was looking to fix my last fiver but when they quoted over $5,000. to replace the roof I bailed out and traded for newer unit.

Ok.. so the white vinyl stuff.. Seems to be already attached to the panel and the only way to buy it... Might want to go to the local Color Tile or similar and look for your own roll of vinyl wall paper..

You can also go to a local lumber yard/Home depot and get your own luan paneling and glue cloth to it.

Home Depot in the PNW carries a vinyl clad 1/4" thick 4' x 8' hardboard sheet under the name Do-able products. You can usually find it near the peg board sheets. It might not match what you already have but could be used to replace the ceiling in the bathroom area.

I have looked at all the DIY stores here in Miami and never saw the one in HD you mention I will ask about it tomorrow. They do have an 1/8 inch thick 4 x 8 white pebbled like plastic sheet there which I have been considering. Nervous about cutting it tho. I have to cut it to size (3 x 5) then cut out the skylight and the 6 inch round power vent. Was thinking to cut it to size on a table saw with a veneer blade and cut out the rest with a dremmel tool. Has
anyone done anything like that before? it's 40 bucks a sheet.

The sheet you describe is a fiberglass reinforced panel (FRP) by the sounds of it. Having worked with it before you can cut it on a table saw with a veneer blade and a jig saw with a fine blade to cut the openings. It is normally glued to a heaver substrate such as luan. Without the backing it might sag depending on the size and distance between rafters or other supports.

I am aware that the Do-able produce is not stocked or available nationwide. One desired use for the product is home theater fixed screens. The characteristics of the vinyl compare favorably with some high dollar screen materials. On one Audio-Visual forum there are people who will make a run from one area of the country to where it is available and pick up several sheets to be delivered at meetup points along the highway. I was lucky enough to live in the PNW where it is manufactured and stocked.

I have a 3 x 5 bathroom with a 2 x 3 skylight, the light is surrounded by metal beam and the rest of the ceiling is covered in foam sheeting between metal beams what is the best glue to use if I go with that FRP panel?

Since there is foam board involved you will need the low voc FRP glue. Liquid Nails FRP-310. Here is the link LIQUID NAILSŪ Wall Adhesive | FRP Panel — Low-VOC

With that small of size bonding to the metal and foam board should prevent any sagging.

I tried 3M spray contact cement to glue up a small foam board filler and it melted the board wherever it touched, was weird to see, it went on nice and as I was about to pick it up it started to bubble the board

Hmm.. My 3M spray didnt do that..But I was thinking more like a small can of roll on. Seems to work better.. definitely different kinds out there. Need to look for 'Polyisocyanurate Foam' safe..

What about stripping it off and painting the wall board with latex interior paint?
