I'm having problems with putting a suspended ceiling in my trailer. The Bozo's I have working on it in AZ, thinik I"m crazy. They're having trouble with the curves, and they say I won't have enough headroom. I figure it's the only way to put all the floresent lights in, and make it look decent. Has anyone else done this? Any advice? I've got to straighten out these clowns.
Hi Tamis, I've never seen suspended ceilings in an Airstream and will be interested to hear about your end result. Have you considered using halogen lighting instead? Small fixtures or a small cove edge with hidden under mount lights might do the trick.

Tamis, I am inclined to agree with the reduced head room comment....I am 6'-2" and would hate to loose even an inch of head room. You can buy recessed fluorescent fixtures designed for RV's...but you would have to cut into the inner skin for installation. Aaron

Why are we in this basket...and where are we going
I have indirect lighting with lights facing up from sides reflecting off the ceiling. I have it at low level for watching tv or the like and have direct lighting for reading, eating, playing cards. Florescent uses less watts and led even less if you are really trying to conserve battery power.
What can I say, a few cocktails and a sick sence of humor.........
Now, about that sunken tub.............
The "Bozo's" in AZ are doing a fine job. Or, I should say, have done a fine job. It's been fixed and ready to roll.
Just waiting for this clown to buy a tow vehicle, and go pick it up.
