We used the glue that a previous post suggested. We got the heavy duty stuff from Home Depot. We sprayed the ceiling in the front of the cab (driver/shotgun areas). So far, the glue seems to be holding.

We followed the suggestion to prop up support under the ceiling after spraying the glue. This really seems to have helped resolve the problem.

We have other areas in the ceiling throughout the rig where we can tell the ceiling is sagging. The saving grace for these areas is that FR screwed in speakers, lights, etc., which seem to be strategically located to hold up the ceiling.

The sagging is there, but not terribly noticeable.

We understand that we are not the "original" owners of the 2011 Georgetown RV. We're the second owners. I think I better understand "why" the "original" owners sold.

The staff at FR (Georgetown) are as helpful as tits on a moose!!! They built the coach. They are just not willing to stand behind their own product.

As I mentioned in a reply to another post, I plan to write to Warren Buffett and share our story with him. He's an honorable and honest person. I'll tell him that we cannot say the same thing for employees of FR, which is one of his companies.

With a little luck....people in Georgetown Parts & Service may find an interesting career somewhere beyond FR..

Ceiling cover sagging and coming loose in front section of rig

Just out of curiosity those with ceiling problems is you MH outside most of the year? I have a 2011 GT 378 and it is kept in a storage unit probably 11 months out of the year - unfortunately. So far the ceiling is fine. The unit has only 10,000 miles.

My MH sits in my side yard, I have a 50amp service there, so it is always plugged in and the air conditioners are on the highest setting so it is always comfy in there. We try to go for week at a time every month if we can get into the campground, snowbirds are coming so after thanksgiving getting a slot is next to impossible. What really gripes me is it's a county park, and me and a lot of others who pay taxes to support the park are shut out.

I got some heavy foam and a length of plywood and jammed that up on the ceiling panel with a 2 x 4 as a prop and left it for a week. So far, in two years, the ceiling is still up and looks like original. Total cost -- about $10.00

My wife and I just did ours the same as you, we bought some Loctite spray adhesive and applied it the same as you, we propped it up just like you did. Now, we wait. We are heading to Long Point Park on the 16th, hoping it will be done by then, thanks for your post, $10.00 is about right.

Just fixed sagging ceiling using 3M 80 headliner spray. Took about 2 hours to do entire coach. Don't remove plastic strips. Pull vinyl out. Spray generously and use rubber trim tool to fold back under trim. Send pm if you want more details. Cost $20.

Be rest assured the Luan is probably 1/8 or less, must leave some weight for cargo and passengers!
