ceiling sagging

Trailer home - my ceiling in the kitchen is starting to sag, there is a seam in the middle where it is sagging. It was probably leeking on the roof. Any suggestions on fixing the sag? Thank you!!!

First fix the roof, might get away with a layer of silvercoat, but also may need to be covered with either new shingles or metal roofing. Than most likely you'll have to pull down the ceiling & replace with new drywall.

You may be able to install extra screws to draw the ceiling up. Prop the sagging part up first. Be sure to use decorative washers or the screw will go through the celotex. If you rehang the ceiling with drywall you may need to beef up the roof trusses to handle the extra weight.
