CC Owners, show me your stepwells

We are getting our carpet replaced (with new, better carpet) and I also want to do something with our stepwell. I'm considering the following:

1. replace the grundgy carpet with some of the new carpet (not our favorite option)
2. replace the carpet with some of the coin pattern black vinyl that is on the steps (too much black??), or maybe dark charcoal or black outdoor carpet.


I'd like to see what others have to get some ideas. I've seen tile but I am sure I can no longer find the tile to match the existing tile. Plus, the side under the passenger seat seems to have a radius and not a sharp corner so not sure how I would use tile there. Existing carpet is stretched over that radius.

Ours is all tile with two 3 light LED fixtures plus we don't have the well in the steps. When they went to the dual steering box 20,000# front axle there wasn't room for it. Not sure I even have a picture of it. Nope, I don't

That looks outstanding! If I was going to install a wood or wood-look flooring, I would do that. However, most of our coach floor is tile which we are going to keep. We have very little carpet up front.... most of our carpet is in the bedroom.

I have the Allure 480 but the entry looks exactly the same as yours. Mine has tile and it greatly enhances the look when entering the Coach. I have the same carpet roll-over where the floor slides to cover the steps but everything else below that is tile. I had a piece that was broken and my solution was to take photos of the main floor tile and then go to a tile store (Cascade Flooring America) and match it up. The original tile was from Florida Tile and they no longer made that pattern. However, I found out that other manufactures made a tile so close to the original that you can't tell the difference. I had the tile shop remove the bad piece and install the new one, looks like a factory job. Also, I got extra tiles for when I break another one someday. They put it down with regular mastic that they use in houses, no problem so far and have had it in for over a year. Good luck.
