    The ceiling panels were more awkward than heavy; plus once all the rivets are removed you have to pry it out of the channel it sits in on either side. We live on an acreage so have ample storage space until we find the best way to get rid of the scraps. If you're short on space be sure to plan accordingly.

    Regarding what it's being replaced with, my wife wants some sort of wood planks. On our 1970 VW Bus we put large sheets of birch in the ceiling which looks good but was not fun to install.

    We are planning on vinyl laminate that looks like wood for the floor.

    Are you planning on taking out the heater? If so, what are you replacing it with?

    We were going to remove the heater but since we are not going to be purchasing our ductless/dual heater/air conditioning unit until next year the current heater stays. I cut the hoses about 8' shorter so the heater now sits in front of the rear wheel well rather than behind it.

    Hello. Could you please explain the drawbacks of not removing the ceiling and walls?

    The main reason we decided on removing ceiling and walls is to ensure no hidden leaks/mold was lurking beneath. Also upgrading the insulation and putting in different materials for paneling and ceiling will hopefully help deaden sound and echoes better than the metal.
