Framing Blueprints

I'm looking for framing blueprints for 08 Holiday Rambler Admiral 30sfs. I want to add a vent in the rear bedroom roof, and don't want to cut a hole in the wrong place. I called manufacturer and was told they no longer send out blueprints. If anyone knows where I could find framing blueprints I would be very grateful.
Thanks Raloma

Wait for a cool morning, before dew evaporates. You should be able to see areas where framing is touching underside of panels, and where voids exist.

If you have lights and speakers in the bedroom you might be able to see many of the roof ribs. I was able to do that in my Diplomat when running cable through my bedroom ceiling

Thanks for the reply's. It's not cold enough for dew in the mornings. I'm looking in the holes for speakers and lights, but pretty hard to see much. I'm not going to trust the blueprints but they would give me an idea what should be where.

I would think a stud finder would be the answer?

Home Depot carries a camera snake that will work. About $100. Take out lights or speakers from ceiling and you can fish the camera cable through. Use a tape measure and you can get a general idea what's in the ceiling.

If you identify a stud finder that can reliably locate aluminum framing through the wall panel, from either side, it would benefit many people. I have tried several that do not work. Waiting for dew to form on the outside is the only thing I've had success with.

Yep, and take a picture for future reference. Sides and roof although roofs can sometimes be tough to make out.
