1980 coachmen ceiling "seam strips"

The ceiling in our camper is in pretty good shape except for a couple of places where the ceiling panels butt together. Theres a plastic joiner strip running the width of the camper where the ceiling panels meet. My problem is the plastic veneer on the ceiling panel has curled back a little on either side of the joiner. I'm hoping I can simply glue the plastic veneer back in place and re-fit the joiner strip...

I tried to pry the joiner away from the seams but it doesn't want to budge and I dont want to break it if possible.
Has anyone gone before me and know how this "joiner strip" works?

Is it a H section profile that two ceiling panels lock together? or are there clips holding it in place?

TIA

I think that is the H style one way you can try is to glue the loose vinyl back down you'll have to cut it to get under it then fab a thin wooden strip and paint it then glue it in place and seal the edges to finish it off. RV proflex would work in white to glue ( don't need too much on the back of the trim part ) the strip and to seal it off spray your finger with silcone spray to smooth it down and it will look great

I would find an O/H cabinet that has a section of that molding running through it. Do some experimenting there - out of site - if possible?
