Engineered tongue and groove flooring

This is the look you can have without laminate- tongue and groove, cut tight against the walls:

Hey Ernie, after reading many posts from you on replacing flooring in a motor home I've come to the conclusion....You're the man! 😉

However, I've never run across your recommendation to trim the edge of an older slide that isn't flush with the fixed floor. My lip is approximately 2.75 inches and I've searched and searched for something that will make the 90 but doesn't make too much of a raised lip. Any suggestions?

John

Man! This irv2 app leaves a lot to be desired. It looks like the system cut off the first sentence of my post. Basically I said after reading many posts from you...all I can say is, Ernie you're the man!

Ernie's the man

Listen to the man, I did, and I lost 40 Lbs in 4 days. ..... Oh wait, wrong infomercial!

Seriously tho. I am doing my rig now with tongue and groove 1/2" engineered floor and could NOT be happier with the quality of materials and the ability to do a literally perfect install with time and perseverance. I did not want quarter round. I wanted a surface that could be repaired or touched up. I wanted my first impression, stairs going up, too look like a piece of furniture. I am not done but I am getting exactly what I wanted.

Ernie, Thanks again for all of your guidance.

Try to get this with laminate!!!


Booya!

What product are you using? Love this look. We have an '07 Fleetwood Excursion that needs new flooring. Trying to decide what to do. Had thought the luxury vinyl was the way to go but maybe not.

folks- LVT is a great product. The caveat is: LVT will telegraph, when properly adhered with pressure sensitive adhesive, any deviation in the subfloor. Engineered wood, will not.
LVT requires a nice flat, smooth floor. It takes more time for this installation

Ernie, Do you put wood on the retracting step cover or leave the carpet? Thanks, Bruce

I put wood on it. I just make sure with a piece just placed on the cover and move it in and out to see if it hits anything. I use the stairnose trim and add a piece of engineered on the face

I will document my stair cover in my thread. Going to use reducer on the inside edge as the transition in and out needs a little clearance.
