Looks great, very nice job. I am curious about polishing the counter tops. Could you hat did see a big difference before and after? What did you use?

more on the how to...the floor..taking the ceramic tile out is time consuming..
but easy to do and it all comes up..same with the carpet...

what I did, as you will find...was put down a 3/16'' sub floor over the osb....to do it again I would use 3/8''....the osb is thin and feels soggy with out the tile...


I went with the Armstrong fiberglass rubber floor..my personal choice and very happy with the finished project...if I did it again... I'd use the same stuff....

I did carpet the front under the seats...and straight across behind the seats.... to do over..I would run the soft flooring all the way to the dash...

next, the tile...did it all my self... my OCD won't allow crooked bad cut tile I used the R&R grout and adhesive... easy to work with and superior results....

the kitchen I went with stainless subway brick.... one thing you will find...to remove the mirrors without breaking them.... I used putty knives to put a slight pressure... then used an insulation knife to cut the adhesive..they come right off that way..you can also use piano wire if you have a helper...

the other thing about alpine.... is you will find a big access hole for the plumbing behind the mirrors at the sink...I highly recommend you do not cover that up...for sure you will get a leak and no way to get in there...


what I did was , I got a recessed medicine cabnet took off the door and put it in the hole.... now it's accesable by removing the side screws...

bath room and bed room tile...
I went with glass tile...hard to work with ,but good results.... I don't use tile spacers... I use small finish nails..I wanted the smallest grout line

with tile....you need to get rectified tile ... which I didn't... way more work to get it straight.... and tile has to be straight and perfect... again... my OCD won't allow any body else to do it..

the other thing is the R&R adhesive.... it allows you to butter one tile at a time
and take your time...real clean job... also... I do not stack the tile... I attach a straight edge under each row... the tiles will vary in width, and stacking them will shurely end up crooked

when I do tile... there is a custom rule of thumb... granite back splash... or tile

I never stack tile on top of a 4'' granite...

also mosec tile will sag if stacked....again results is crooked

I got the tile from home depot... so most likely reject tile....but made it work

Excellent work. Have completely remodeled two coaches ourselves, so I know how much work is involved. Congratulations.
