Interior roof replacement

I tried everything I knew how to keep the place on the top of my 88 fleetwood bounder from leaking but was not successful in doing so. The cap where the fiberglass meets the metal roof, so now its time to rip out the inside of the roof from the front to almost where the 1st a/c is. I have since pressured washed all the old puddy, tape, spray crap I could and now that part is finally sealed. Now comes the task of demoltion of my ceiling and repair. Anybody try doing this themselves? I got a hold of fleetwood and they emailed me the pics of the inside scamatics but its of the skelton or framing. I don't believe it to be to traumatic but non the less a job. I will take pics of it tomorrow and paiste on here. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance..

Please do come back and update us on this. I too am dealing with some water damage issues. I used 3M interior upholstery spray adhesive. I am concerned about the toxicity of that product, though. Let us know how you repair this. Thanks for sharing.

When you go to put the new paneling up, build some prop rods from wood with little 'pads' on the ends that you can brace between the floor and ceiling to hold it all up while you staple it with the air gun.

That gives you stability to place the panel where you want it and not have it flopping around while you try to fasten it.

And you know space is tight so you won't be able to get extra people in there to help you hold it up.
