ceiling panel replacement

The interior ceiling panels in my 73 Safari are in poor shape so I am looking to use some type of replacement material. I found this website that has colored aluminum sheets in various sizes:

I will be painting my walls white, so I am interested in the white color. Anyone every use something like this? I open to suggestions of other material that will work well for interior ceiling panels.
thanks.
Greg

Aren't all interior panels on an Airstream made of aluminum? So aluminum is probably a good choice. When I did mine (aluminum) the issue that I ran into was to be careful with the lengths of the sections. I wanted the panels to be removable so I had to think about how to cut around obstacles (like the AC).
