I did mine in my back yard, it's as good a place as any.

I was going to say: "In an enclosed building...", but I don't think that is the type of location harleychief is looking for.

If you were near Spokane I would suggest TrueLine RV, but I don't think that will help you.

Great looking floor. Tks for sharing and for the pics. What is the make of the laminate? Is it floating or glued on the floor? Is it a click system and did you glue the joints?

We used the Dupont Brand floating floor from the Homedepot. Here is a link to the selections http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/cata...#/?c=1&393=393

You do need to buy this tool kit. Accutite Wedge Laminate Flooring Installation Kit-TL129341 at The Home Depot without the wedge in this kit it's impossible.
Watch these videos and you'll be a lot better off. DuPont? Real Touch® Premium Laminate Flooring Installation Videos

We liked this product because of the locking method and the fact that it has the backing pre installed, so there's nothing needed between the floor and the product.

It took us about five days to complete the job from just behind the cockpit chairs to the bedroom door.

Just be sure there are no staples left in the floor and that the slide has no protruding screws on the bottom surface.

OH Yea we really like it. The Throw Rugs now stay where we put them, and cleaning up after the Dogs is easy, with the central vac I installed. But that's another story

on Master Tech RV in Elkhart, IN to do the work and Mannington Adura tile. We did several other things at the same time. We have lived with our changes for over a year now and could not be happier. Master Tech is a great company and the work they did is beautiful.

Anyone here ever have to replace a portion of rotted sub-flooring?

I found some in the corner of the bedroom outside wall (slide out) where it meets the the inside wall where the washer/dryer is hooked up. We just bought the coach from a dealership a few months ago so unfortunately no history came with it. Personally, I think the washer may have leaked at some point causing some floor rot over time. I don't think it's too bad but have no idea how much work I'm looking at to make the repairs, I'm a crafty guy so I plan on doing it myself but it'd be nice if someone has posted up a similar type project with photo's, like the floor project above.


Also, hoping this is a good place to ask another question. The former owner installed a central vac system in the closet above the washer/dryer combo with the outlet being inside the bathroom wall. I don't like this set up for several reasons, noisy at all heck being at the top of the list so I want to remove and re-install in the basement with the new outlet being installed flush on the floor I'm guessing would be the easiest approach??? Thought's on that?

I'm leaning towards placement being behind the passenger seat up against the wall but it would probably make more sense putting in center span so we won't need as long of a hose but I have a kitchen slide out opposing the living room slide so I'm not sure where I can get away with that.....any ideas?

Thanks!

I had to replace some flooring in our PUP, but it may not be of much help to you. In any case here are some pictures of the project.

I put our central vac in the center for the reasons you say. It went in the bay with access in the furnace compartment under the fridge. Here are some pix http://sdrv.ms/U89ntl
