Hi jdsr. I did not have a rest easy sofa, that is one reason I removed the original(jacknife sofa). It was not hard to remove, the hardest part was getting the replacement through the doorway. The replacement is a queen sleeper sofa, it takes a lot of room when opened, but the replacement chair is easily temporarily moved & I made a portable cover for the stairwell to prevent someone from accidentally falling in the hole.

I replaced all the carpet in my 36ft Journey DL with a high grade linoleum that looks like wood. It also has a padded backing which i would think helps reduce road noise. Real nice stuff. I paid $2,000 total including installation. Local floor guy had it done in 2 days. Looks amazing. Not a fan of laminate bc water can get under it causing bubbles.

As others have commented it is easy to keep up, looks good, & a few area rugs
let you change the look easily & as often as you like.
If interested photos of that & other projects at: Picasa Web Albums - Terry & Bev + Cookie
looked at your albums and what a great change...did you do all the work yourself??????????looks just like home...

Just wondering what you did with the carpet that is on the main slide? Our slide goes out and then down. It worries me about replacing the carpet because of that. What happens if you get a rock or something that will scratch the flooring?

I covered the area under the main slide in linoleum too. So far no problems. goes in and out just as smooth as ever. I travel with 2 bulldogs so getting rid of all the carpet made the rv alot easier to maintain. Check out the pics. I think it makes it like a new rv.

Good luck with whatever you choose...
Hi, When I saw your post I was interested and checked on Allure through Google. I found a blog that told a frightening story of a smell problem with the flooring. I don't remember the web site, but it should be easy to find. I think you will be glad you did.

You did some job. It looks amazing. How long did that take you? I do not know why they do not come from the factory standard without carpets. Rug is way too hard to maintain.

Yes. I had everything taken out, covered in linoleum, then bolted back down.
