Sagging headliner

My first project in my 95 Vectra is the sagging headliner. Here is what I am thinking about doing to fix it.

The headliner is coming apart where the seam strips are. I intend to buy some wide white plastic molding strips from Lowe's and screwing them into the ceiling with short screws. I know that the headliner has a foam backing but I am not sure of the thickness of the board the headliner attaches to.

I figure this will work because the A/C vents are attached to the headline board using screws and visually it appears that there is plenty of space between the headliner and roof.

Any thoughts?

I just don't want to scrape all of that foam backing off at this time. I want to hit the road!!

I would contact Winnebago for a drawing of what is in the roof. The vents are framed and reinforced and no indicative of what all the ceiling is like. Most likely the material that the headliner is glued to is a thin luan of 1/16" to 1/8". There are quite a few how to's on redoing the headliner.

I purchased some white PVC flat strips from Lowe's and screwed them into the headliner near the existing seams. This worked great!
