Repairing the ceiling in a motorhome can be costly if you take the vehicle to a repair shop, but you can do this repair in a few hours at home. As your motor home ages, the ceiling can start to yellow and sag. If the motor home has had problems with leaks in the past, water stains may be present on the ceiling as well. The repair is not hard with the right tools, supplies and instructions. Your sagging or old motor home ceiling can look showroom-new in no time.


Place a drop cloth on the floor below the spot you want to repair on your motor home's ceiling. Cover the wall below the spot with a drop cloth as well. Next, tape off any windows or trim underneath the area getting repaired.


Remove any cabinets that may be in the way of the ceiling. With gloves and eye goggles on, start pull down any sagging or old ceiling material.


Measure the spot you need to repair on your ceiling. Cut a piece of the vinyl fabric according to your measurements. Be neat---no jagged edges.


Paint a coat of the cement or adhesive on the back of the fabric and then some on the ceiling. Let the cement stand for a few minutes and become tacky. Then carefully place the vinyl on the ceiling and smooth out from the center towards the edges with a putty knife or straightedge. Keep smoothing and add a small amount of cement around the edges to ensure bonding with the ceiling.


Check the repair job after about 10 minutes to make sure the edges are sealed. Add a small amount of cement to the edges if needed. Then move to next spot and repeat steps to repair.
