Replacing the ceiling on a 1988 Coleman Sequoia popup

How do you attach a new ceiling to a coleman popup ceiling when there are no rafters and the ceiling is all foam. Can I use luan board, will glue hold it up? Can I also screw into the foam?

I'm concerned that the wood wont hold, not to mention, trying to rehang the door from the original ceiling location.

The roof had leaked and I've repaired that, the old ceiling peeled apart but not all of it, I still have laminate attached to the foam. IS that good or bad? If anyone has done this before any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Mike

I used Styrofoam tiles I bought off amazon and glued them to the sealing with LOCTITE PL construction adhesive.

The sealing is glued together at the factory and assembled as one. You can glue the luan to the foam I did in the picture above but it is not fun. You need to brace the luan to the top/ Just gluing the Styrofoam to the foam will work with out the luan

Thanks for the input, your ceiling looks real nice. I'll have to show the "boss", might be changing our minds

real simple to put in and you get many choices. I caulked the seams and painted the ceiling when I was done.
