This thread has got us thinking of using a similar product that we used, only it comes in 20' rolls. We have a curve in our ceiling that it would be perfect in. Thanks for the thread!

The tin we used has a 6 inch stamp pattern and we found that the 2'x2' panals will bend at these pattern seams without deforming the pattern. There are also 2 and 4 inch patterns offered that will do better on those contours. We put the metal in the center of the ceiling save in the refer area. For the trim in the contours, we will be using diff. size rope to keep with the "Singing Land Cruiser" theme. All the Best, M&C

We have been thinking of using this type of look also.

Paul tell me about the stuff in rolls, My celing is curved also and I think that would work better.

Guys,

I really like Paul's Tile around the kitchen counter as it looks good and can be wiped down with the usual spills and messes around a kitchen,  but I would be hesitant to use it on the ceiling.

I went with the pressed foam because of its insulation properties and that it absorbs sound more than reflects it.

I would be concerned of having a large area that just reflects sound inside what is already a "tin" can.

YMMV

Hi Cliff, Christi and I shared that same concern. We have found on our day 5 of fulltiming that the furniture and window treatments rids the coach of that tinny sound and leaves warm roomy feeling. All the Best, M&C

Michael,

Thanks for the response.

I find it interesting how as we have added items during the finish phase of our conversion, that sometimes a small item like a window treatment or furniture will change the acoustics on the inside.  Many that I had not really planned on.

Glad to hear how yours has worked out, the tin look is one of my favorite additions to the coach.

Cliff, I couldn't agree more! We like it so much that the ceiling curve is next. It really adds a personal touch, and that's what we are all trying to do anyway.

My wife has some really good ideas, and very gratefull for her input.

Thanks Van, just before I got to your pictures, the wife commented that she'd like to see what the ceiling would look like in the tin pattern painted white. She loves it Grin My list just keeps growing lol Will
