It's time for us to replace our flooring in the 02 Journey. I've been reading the flooring comments in the winnebago forum. I'm very concerned about tackling the project due to the slides. Can anyone suggest or recommend a reliable company that might do this type of flooring replacement work?

I saved these pictures from a previous thread; hope it's okay to post them. Hopefully someone remembers who posted this information originally. If I remember correctly, the owner of the MH did his own installation and it looks like it really turned out nice. Would like to have it done to mine!

We checked with two installers in Grand Junction CO where we were staying for a couple of months.
One said he had done one motor home (no slides)and wouldn't do another one. The other one said "You don't have enough money".
They are used to doing rectangular rooms with a minimum number of trimming and cutouts and finishing in a day or less. Motor homes take a lot longer.

We did the job ourselves and working 4 to 5 hours a day it took us about 10 days.

If anyone is interested I will post a couple of pictures and some info on the installation.

I have a coach with two slides and looked into the cost of having the carpet replaced. After reading as much as I could find I then talked to two companies that had extensive experience in replacing carpet in RVs with slides. One gave me a quote of $3k for labor alone and the second gave me a quote of $2500 for the whole job. The cost is due to the slides. Both companies said they remove the slides to replace flooring and would not even consider doing it any other way. Remember, a business does not want an unhappy customer.
