I just remembered a video Tyger Cub put together on the topic. She came up with a simple and accurate method. You will have to go to the following entry date and time to see the video because I don't know how to copy it here. Having said that I see a direct you tube link is here

Today I covered the rear of the bus with flooring. Went to see "Battleship" with my Mother, which was fun in a mindless entertainment sort of way. Ate dinner with her, then came home and crawled under the bus to contemplate where the hell I'm going to put my waste tank for the umpteenth time. Gave up and came inside to put together the video below.
There is one more I haven't gotten the time to edit yet. But in the mean time, here is a long overdue explanation of how I created the template for my ceiling curvature:
Basically, the video shows me taping poster board to the wall and a corner post. I then hold a permanent marker against a measuring tape that has been expanded so the tip is against the ceiling and the body of the tape is by the pen. I hold the pen steady as I follow the curve of the ceiling, which naturally transfers the shape to the poster board. The board is trimmed along the line and test fitted. Any minor adjustments that need to be made are done and the final product is displayed.
Hope this helps someone. I'll post more later.
