new flooring

Bought a 2006 hr endeavor last april, we are new full timers. The carpet was filthy so we lived with it for about 4 months. Went to tennessee for a rally last sept. and met an rv tech and hired him to put all new flooring in $our coach. He had to take up the ceramic tile in the kitchen, bath and part of the bedroom, it was so difficult to pull up( he had to rent a jackhammer)
lord knows what they put it down with, and under everything there was black mold, so whoever owned it before us had leaks. So we had to get a mold co. out to kill the mold and vacuum it out, then take up all the old flooring with the mold on it and replace and finally put down the allure cherry vinyl planking which is gorgeous and needs no maintenance other than a wet swifer, however before putting it down all the consoles and electric were taken out of the way. this guy did a fantastic job, unfortunately it took 4 days because of the delays and all these guys get paid by the hour, to make a long story short, the flooring which is in the living area, kitchen and bedroom(i left the tile in the bath area) cost, hold onto your hat, eight thousand dollars, and it was the 3rd estimate I got, but the job got done once and it got done right. I am very happy with it, it is warm underfoot and flexes with the coach, slides go right over it and don't touch and make those black marks, I had to leave the carpet on the slides because this kind of motorhome has a slide that settles down on the floor so it is perfectly even so we could'nt put vinyl on that. We intend to keep this coach for quite a while so we put in the investment, also put new led tv's in living area and bedroom, they are great, just put a board over the cabinet and screwed the bracket to it and voila, new tv's, hope I didn't bore you.

Posted pictures in the thread labeled "good bye carpet, hello vinyl" Take a look. I see cocos camper did something similar to mine except I replaced the carpet in cockpit area and bedroom with vinly. Crapet only on slide. Cocos camper yours looks great, and I agree do it yourself and save money.

Hit the road, can't wait to see your flooring when we get to the Yellowstone caravan. Didn't know you had more water damage, bet you are glad you found it and got it repaired. See you in June.

Hey Bob, that looks like a great product, I am going to have to replace the flooring in my sticks and bricks once the foundation folks get through, I really like this Congoleum product. I think I would install all of it as loose lay. I also think the same product for the motorhome, loose lay, would be great too.

Did you install borders when you loose laid it? Or did you loose lay it?

Thanks!

Kent

Lincoln boy 2, I did loose lay, but because there was a gap from removing the carpet I decided to use trim to hide the gap. When you loose lay without trim you must cut the vinyl perfect. Hope your project turns out we'll.

I'm not sure I'd let Camping World change out a roll of toilet paper.
