Sagging Ceiling Need Advice

I have a 2005 Itasca Horizon 40ad. We have enjoyed full timing in it the last 10 years. MH is in great shape, except LR ceiling foam seperating from adhesive, the vinyl sagging. I don't believe this is a water leakage problem, have kept the roof cove caulked. My brother has a lot of experience in construction, he suggested using knockdown texture on the ceiling.
We would remove vinyl, scrape off foam, sand adhesive off boards. Then paint boards with a special primer. I would hire a professional to apply the knockdown texture. Paint the texture off white. We would install transparent type of T-shaped molding between each 4x8 sheet. If the texture does crack over time, it would be easy to repair.

What do you think? Has anyone tried this before?

Thank you for your time!

Not a good idea on a movable home. Personally I would strip clean and glue up some vinyl or something similar

I would take it down and see what caused it to sag. It may just be a matter of applying spray adhesive and sticking it back up, assuming the material is in good shape.

As for replacement, I would use some kind of vinyl. JMHO

The foam has disintegrated behind the vinyl. The original vinyl can't be replaced. I tried that & it's ugly multiple levels of depth.

I could scrape off all the old foam/glue, & glue new vinyl back up.
Thank you!

I like your solution. I have tried to convince wife to use the panels before, & she always vetoed the idea. By trimming the panels with wood might change her mind. Did you prep the old vinyl in anyway before you installed new panels? Did you glue panels before nailing them on? Thanks!

Hawk: No prep. I don't think the vinyl would provide any structural support at all, so just used fasteners on the whole project. But there were a few "tricks" and learning experiences in getting the project done, so if you decide to do this perhaps a phone call would be valuable. Just let me know.

I appreciate your input, but we plan to move forward with the knockdown texture plan.
I will take pictures during & after the process. This will take a long time to complete because of covid-19. Just for reference my wife & I have been full timing in this mh for 10 years.

NOt the best looking job, but cheap enough if you'd like trying them out.

I did a few ceilings with these and found them to be satisfactory.
