If you are going to be living in your Skoolie full time taking out the ceiling is a good idea for a few reasons. First it allows you to check for rust and mold. If the roof had a leak at any point, the fiberglass insulation has soaked up that moisture and probably started to grow mold. Ours was in good shape, but I have seen pictures of others that look really bad. Point is, you do not know what your dealing with in the ceiling unless you take it down.
The other reason to take it down is to add better insulation. I think we will probably go the spray foam route.
Lastly it allows easy access to the wiring that is tapped under the insulation.
So lots of extra work, but I think a good idea in the long run.
