Vynal Flooring

We just had all the lino and carpet removed and installed vynal wood flooring. What a big difference. It makes the inside look larger. Also easier for momma to clean. Took them 2 days for the install.

I would love to do this. It really looks great. Getting rid of that carpet would be really nice. Where did you have it done?

I checked with different flooring companies. They came to the park we are in and did the install. All the RV remodel/repair outfits wanted the trailer at their shop for 3 days at double the price

Looks great Shane! Did you have to do anything special to protect the floor from slide operation?

Shane ,
That looks awesome !! I wonder if it will be cold on your feet ? I see you have a dog - or dogs - do they find it hard to move around on the all the non carpeted surfaces ? I know my black lab hates the wood floors in the S & B . . She avoids them at all costs

Not yet the kitchen slide this vinyl was just a hair thicker than the original lino that was removed. On the dinette slide I am having a custom oak strip made to hide the rubber of the slide and I will glue felt on the bottom of it to protect the floor.

Like any hardwood floor it is cooler than carpet If it got cold enough that the heat pumps would not work you would need the furnace to warm the bedroom floor. The dogs spin out on it once in a while. The older one can still get enough traction to jump up on the bed

Looks great Shane!
If you are driving on any gravel roads, check the seal under the DR. before opening the slide. We had a lot of gravel caught up there and ended up with a few gouges and scratches on our floor.

We had the carpet deleted when we ordered, best option we picked, but they still left it on the steps (now it's the only heavily trafficked carpet), dinette slide , & small strip around the bed. The cleanup is sooo much easier than carpet!!!

Shane, did you have to remove the furniture, or did the installers work around it?

We took the dinette chairs and recliners out. Put the couch on the slide and then moved it when doing the slide

That looks great, Shane. I have no devotion to our carpet, especially after the whole red wine, looks-like-scene-from-Dexter incident last summer. Would appreciate it if you would think to post some feedback in a couple of months from now to tell us how you like it and how the flooring seems to be holding up.

Btw - what about slides? You may have mentioned that already. I'll go back through the thread and see if you did. I was just looking at the pictures.

I second that; all details would be welcome, as we want to replace our carpet with vinyl before we winter next fall. We just can't keep the carpet in the living room and dinette area clean in AZ. Went to a flooring retailer and installer in Mesa AZ this fall and they told us "can't do it because of the slides". If possible we may only do the living and kitchen, bedroom may stay carpet.

We did everything including the slides. I got the idea from our office that has the same vinyl planking , work boots and in 2 years there is no noticible wear.it wears as good as linoleum flooring. You do have to remove the existing flooring or the stove side slide would tear it up coming in as there is very little tolerance from the floor and the slide. The dinette slide is not a problem as it lifts when starting to come in

Looks fabulous. We want to remove our carpet also. What brand and color is this?

The flooring looks good. Did the installers glue the floor covering down or does it float?

Exactly why we decided to order ours with living room carpet deleted. Wish we could have done the same for bedroom & stair treads but that wasn't an option.
