Brian Knight offered me very good deal for a four-year-old coach. He was willing to replace the panels in pay for a few ours of labor. My only problem is that if the few hours of labor was even 10 hours, my cost would probably still be around $3000 dollars or more in labor if it takes as long is what I've seen on the other posts. So I repaired it myself with $130 in materials and about 10 hours of labor. I have pictures of the before and after but I am unsure whether to put them on this post or start a new post entitled "No more sagging ceilings". Any thoughts would be helpful.

Bill where did you buy the material from and is it the same as factory? How hard of a process is it.

I did not replace the panels. That's a process that was above my head. What I did was support the sagging material the screws and screw caps. I gave it a quilted appearance with the help as my mother in laws quilting experience. Some people may like this some may not. DW is happy so I'm happy!! here are some pics before and after. I would have loved to have the panels replaced. But then this could happen again possibly. And $3000 is a lot of camping.

Forest River told me it was easy to glue it back up. Not! They offered nothing to help me and mine was much worse.
