Anybody considered using 24x24 inch tin tiles for their ceiling? I have been looking at the various products and want some feedback. PVC is another option that makes the ceiling look like a million bucks!

Anybody?

Cliff used something similar in appearance.   I believe his ceiling tiles were foam. 
He has some pix posted in here.  Not sure how to find them?

I also would like some feedback on that too. We have considered all three for the ceiling. Also, need some ideas on the walls also.

Hi guys, Christi and I just moved into our 102a3 (Mrs. Jones). We installed 2'x2' tin from front to back. See pics at http://singinglandcruiser.blogspot.com/ . We love it. We put tiles from mboss.com in the bathroom and they ran $2.50 a sft. We had them left over from the Virgil Earp replica house we built in Tombstone, AZ. We were so pleased Christi hit the www. and found the "tin ceiling depot" for $2.00 a sft. We used standard metal stud self tapping screws to affix the tiles in place. It went very fast and we are getting great reviews from all our visitors. We converted our 1987 MCI charter in 3 months to the day. All the Best, M&C

I purchased a couple of the 2x4 PVC simulated tin panels from the home center. They come in white. I then bought a can of Rustoleum plastic primer and some Rustoleum hammered copper spray paint and painted one of the panels. I really like the way it turned out. I plan on using this for the drop ceiling in the bedroom, and might end up doing it throughout the bus. The panels are quite expensive, but still cheaper than the pre-finished 2x2 panels they had.

There is also the very heavily embossed paper material (in the wallpaper section) you might want to look at. Probably more work, less money.

I installed replica tin ceilings for years.

Brian Greer out of Canada had some of the best product that I saw.

He also has cornice that could be used for a raceway for low voltage wiring.

He has a web site.  His prefinished panels have some kind of sealer on them.

We used a plastic tin panel from Home Depot, hadn't thought of using that for the ceiling until now.

Michael, This quote was pulled from their site, Although these panels are “Class A” fire rated, they can be deformed with excessive heat. Never expose to heat over 140°F.
Keep toaster ovens, cooking ranges, etc. 3-4 inches away from the panel’s surface.

http://www.acpideas.com/index.cfm?XlinkID=12

Our panels are 7" from back of cooktop, 10" from side. We have not used the cooktop yet, no propane! Roll Eyes So far our convection/microwave and elec. hotplate have provided us with all we need, at least so far!
