Hey mrdually350, I do plan on leaving the ceiling bare aluminum, I was lucky that the aluminum didn't have too many flaws that were covered with the material at the factory. I had the best luck with a product called Citristrip, available just about anywhere, even the hardware department at Wal-Mart. SKATER has a good thread titled Removing ceiling vinyl from the '90s-era trailers, I'd put a link to it here if I were computer smart, but I'm not, sorry.

My 1996 had one ceiling panel come loose, I followed the forums advice of using Bostick Adhesive and upholstery screws, I used the adhesive a month ago it is still beautiful I am adding the upholstery screw this week end for safety but so far so good, easy to do...

Has anyone tried double sided carpet tape to solve the drooping foam backed vinyl ceiling problem? I do not want to use the screw solution. And not quite ready for the FULL reno solution.
