Look at post #75 below. It wasn't an easy job, but well worth the effort!

Another flooring question

Am interested in your product. What do you think will happen to floor warmth with this vinyl compared to the carpet? Do you plan to use an underlayment product of some kind?
I think I want to do the living area slide also to get the eating area covered. Grandkids can be messy.
Is this product glued down or does it float, locked together?
Thanks. Gary

being a newbie, i don't know how to use this site yet. i intended this message for a post on the LVT product, but looks like it went out as a loner post. maybe i'll find out how to use the site someday.

In our previous coach we used Pergoe. It did not stand up to water.

Our coach has two layers of 3/4" particle board under the tile. The tile is glued down.

I couldn't see an easy way to put tile one the main slideout!

The PO redid the floors on our '04 Winnebago Vectra in marble tile, all the way to the bedroom. Main reason we bought the unit, plus the floorplan. Wife has two dogs, a cat, and a messy husband, so, she's quite pleased with this~!

Don't really understand the question. The kitchen table slides out of the wall, no supports to the floor, and the chairs are just sitting there.

He's talking about how he installed the flooring under the edge of the kitchen slide.

I redid ours. The carpet was worn-out and the laminate was strating to curl. I installed 7MM laminate and installed it on underlayment so it's floating. I took out all the carpet. I replaced the carpet on the dog house and the drivers side slide. All total it cost me around $2000. I hired a flooring guy because I'd just had a shoulder replacement and supervised. It's a lot of work but we'll worth the effort. The slides are really not an issue. You can make the jacks out of 2x3s to lift the slides so that you can work underneath them. It's a simple process. Engineered wood flooring is easier to install but you have to glue the edges together as you lay it down. I can send pics of the jacks and tell you how to use them. Harley, getting under the kitchen slide is easy with the block jacks. I also took out my dinette and replaced the carpet with laminate and put new rollers in. PM me if you have any questions.

you don't glue engineered wood edges together- you butter the back of the boards with urethane adhesive

Want to replace the carpet. At present have mostly laminate. How hard is it to remove the old factory installed laminate? I assume it is glued down. Do I need to rent an electric hammer?
Keep Smiling,
Bob R
