Fabulous Interior Coach Work

Traveling in Oregon so thought we might try to get new TV's installed in our 01 MDDS if they had an opening. Called Scott and Bobby at Kustom Koach Words/ Amazing Creations in Junction City who have worked on a number of Alpines. They had a cancellation, called us and we got there in a few hours for the new front and bedroom TV's. Then things mushromed as we decided and after another cancellation, Scott and Bobby pulled all the flooring out of the MH, carpet and tile - which was a tough job - releveled the floor and installed some super vinyl that they have found that does not look like vinyl and in our case looks like tile. They did an outstanding job, very accomodating, high quality work and a reasonable price. Can't say enough good things about Scott and Bobby and their work. PS we love the new interior look and it will be a snap to keep clean.

Even though we looked at about 7 vinyl books, did not get the name of the mfg. Kustom Koach only uses the one we had them installed so they have that info.

That is a very nice installation and one that we are thinking about. We will be getting in touch with Amazing Creations.

Sorry for not Posting sooner, on our last trip through Oregon we stopped in Junction City and made a visit to Amazing Creations and Kustom Coach Works and had some great work done on our 01 38 Alpine. We had the Closet redone and had the Sliding Glass Mirrors replaced and drawers installed. We also had the Dometic Refrigerator replaced with a residential refrigerator. We went from a 10 Cubic foot Dometic to a 17 cubic foot GE, a big difference it made. They do great work and had the work done in the time they estimated. The hardest part was finding the refrigerator that would fit and we found it in Eugene OR., in one day.

Dave,

Is your furnace still under the fridge, or was it relocated?

Jetar - We were thinking about removing the carpet and tile from living room, kitchen and shower area and putting in Pergo or something equivalent. Your's looks great though...we may just go for a similar product. Any ideas what I should expect to pay? Also, how did your front area turn out...driver feet area, steps, and step platform? How long did it take? Did you have to remove the slide? Did you leave the carpet under the couch? Thanks.

Hello Dave; to answer your question they did not have to move the furnace when they installed the Residential Refrigerator. That is why we had to find one on OR. We had to find out what was the maximum size they could fit into the space without relocating the furnace. Once we found out the size, we went looking and found what we needed. The DW had to approve the purchase before they started.

Steve S. It took 4 full and long days to do our floor and we stayed in the coach at night. Tile was the most difficult to remove, chiesel out, although the carpeting was very well attached with many staples. The slides, kitchen, sofa and bed stayed in the coach, but the driver/co pilot seats, easy chair, dining room table and toliet were removed. The wafer board had to be resmoothed with filler and then it had to be sanded level which resulted in a lot of dust that Bobby and Scott cleaned out well with my help. We left carpeting under the couch, the stairwell, the sides of the bed and in and around the bedroom slideout. The vinyl was put in as one piece with no seams, have to see to believe them do it, and it is a floating floor. New molding had to be made as the floor is lower so the quarter round won't cover the original area and higher molding is needed. Expect to pay in the $3000 to $4000 area for a 36 foot.
