So, we need to finish the ceiling in our trailer. We will insulate and then,,,,,???

Question is, what do folks cover or put up on the ceiling? Lauan?

Thanks in advance.

We used the white masonite board for our ceiling, with pvc batten strips when we get to it. Saved us from having to paint the ceiling, and it's pretty easy to wipe down. I think the "standard" is either FRP (fiber reinforced plastic) or aluminum sheets. You can get FRP from Home depot, but it's heavy and more expensive than the masonite.

Thanks, I'll check into the Masonite board. I just spent a boat load on FRP to the entire wall area inside, and while it is nice, I imagine it would be a bugger to work with on the ceiling.

Thanks, and keep the ideas coming.
