    Hey everyone!
    Seeking advice on ceiling repairs for a 1978 starcraft pop up.
    While it was being stored over the winter a branch fell on the top causing a small dent at the roof seem. We took the tarp off and then had rain and ended up With a bit of a leak we have fixed the roof. But now looking for some Advice on fixing the interior, we are drying it out (dehumidifier, fans etc.) but the vinal is peeling off that section and under the vinal. Seems to be 1/4 inch plywood or possibly fiber board like what ugly old wood wall panelling used to be made out of . Its only about a 1 foot by 2 foot section. And right at the edge of the ceiling.
    This trailer is in amazing shape and all original (other then some Cosmetic changes to the inside) i cant find any information about it online I'm assuming because its so old. So any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks

    We bought these styrofoam tiles and used construction adhesive to attach them to our ceiling after repairing it. Light and easy. We painted them white. I bought them from Amazon. You can find them by searching

    Email StarCraft and see what books they have on file. They are good about emailing out old instructions and fridge manuals. Nice find!
