Allure Remodel

We have had our RV for a year and it was time to remodel and "make it ours"!

In summary I removed one of the two couches and put an entertainment center in its place, relocate the surround sound speakers, remove the carpeting and replaced it with vinyl plank flooring, and got rid of the head-banger TV over the driver seat.

I have broken the remodel into 3 parts and have posted them to our blog. Here are the links if you are interested in my process.


Entertainment Center

Front TV (head-banger)

Cost breakdown:
Labor: 3 weeks
Flooring: $1100
TV lift mechanism: $550
TV: $475
Counter Top: $100
Cherry cabinetry: $500
Miscellaneous: $200
Total: $2925
Happy wife: priceless

I like it.
I have the same TV setup and if there isn't steel framing in the way I think I'll do the same thing only mount a new led flatscreen there and let it hang down a bit. Head-banger or no.

I hope you don't have issues with the sealed edge on the flooring - it is supposed to float for expansion and contraction from temperature changes. I put the same think down in ours about five years ago and it's been fantastic. Good plan getting it to match the tile height.

Very nice. Couple of questions/observations:

1. whose vinyl plank flooring did you use?

2. We also have pondered removing the passenger side sofa but see that carpet-covered box under it with some flexible hoses coming out of the top (maybe to the Aqua Hot heat exchanger under the galley). Figured the box had to stay so let the idea go for now. We wanted to put a recliner there but that won't work.

3. Did you also remove the carpet in the bedroom?

I got the flooring from Flooring America it was leftover from a restaurant job Industrial/Commercial grade So I got a deal!!!
One note; Glue the subflooring down!! I stapled it and had some buckling over the winter. I'm going to pull some pieces up and drill squirt some glue in the holes and screw it down. Hope that helps.

The box under the sofa held the hydraulic lines for the slide and the slide opening is that size so there is no option of removing it.

We left the BR carpet (For now)

I have read (and buy someone who should know), that it is actually better to glue the floor down in an RV. Reasons given were that the expansion/contract inside an RV is not an issue, use the proper urethane glue actually protects against water intrusion. There advice is always glue.

Nice job, looks like good use of space.

What model Allure is your 04? We have a two passenger sided slide High Cascade. Is ours the three slide Newport?

Enjoy TV, and your happy wife - by way, I could see the stress in your dog!
