Thank you. Is there any easy way to tell. I know that I have rollers on the frame that the slide rolls on but I do not know if there are rollers on the inside edge of the slide. Where would I inspect to try and find out.

Allure Ultra Laminate Install

Nice job could I share a hint I learned from folks that work on tractors. A lot of tractor implements sit out in the rain and the nuts rust to the bolt so is a pain to get apart. Take any kind of candle and a propane torch. Just heat the nut enough that the candle will melt against the threads in the bolt if you touch it to it. The heat from the nut will wick the candle wax up into the threads under the bolt and the bolt will be a LOT easier to loosen. I did not believe this would work until I tried it on a bolt that I had drowned in PB Blaster and left overnight to set. I could not get the nut off until I used the candle wax. To make sure it was not just the combination I tried another bolt without PB Blaster on it and the nut came off very easily.

look outside under the slide. you will see the rubber seal. pull that down an you maybe able to see the rollers
if not- retract the slide, take a framing square an while laying it flat on the floor move it under the slide and see if it impacts the rollers.

Does anyone have any reason why the click style Allure Vinyl Flooring would be preferred over the self adhesive overlap style? I might suggest the overlap adhesive style would not show any separation with temperature changes?

I put the Allure vinyl the one that over laps and when finished is like one big piece. It's not glued down its like it floats. But this vinyl is thick and when put down like I said it's like its one big piece so that if you spilt water on it , the water can't it under it. I've used in my kitchen and my son in law put it in his whole house. . It has different styles and is easy to put down. I'm thinking about putting it down in my coach. I would recommend it to anyone.
Someone had said something about the planks with vinyl on them. I would not recommend that and Here's why. In my previous RV it had the individual vinyl planks that wees glued down . There was a couple of times that the slides we'd not completely level and it tore the vinyl off the planks as it started to slide.

The slide is scratching my laminate floor. I started putting a stiff piece of plastic on the floor when closing. When there was tile there were black marks embedded from the slide.

Not having a place to work my self on the MH nor the time or expertise I elected to have it done professionally. Besides I can blame someone else if it goes wrong .

I had all the existing carpet and tile removed - stem to stern. I also had the steps and step cover redone.
Karndean Art Select Wood RL11 with variable width planks and laid on a diagonal.
TPS floor adhesive
Self leveling Float
Black Coin pattern stair tread
Marine Wrinkle Vinyl on sides of steps

About $5400

nice looking. I hope they used a wood stair nose and not some metal. The white residue on the treads is a releasing agent and comes off easily.

The bottom pic of the steps was taken in the middle of the work, it is neat and clean now. The top pic is the finished job with the slide out. I am very pleased with the job. Will have to see how it holds up over time.

DIY Floor

So, why does it cost so much to have the flooring done? We were told that the furniture had to be removed, etc. How about the tile removal in kitchen and bath? We, too, were given a high quote to remove our carpet and have it done.

Moby- you are dealing with skilled labor. You can't compare a stick and brick with a coach. S&B- installers go by the square foot or yard. In a coach, there is not that volume of square feet and thus the higher cost. Each coach is different. It all depends on what you wish to keep or wish to replace. Even coaches of same vintage and layout can differ from what the owner wants done.
