How Much & where to get floor remodel

Have a 39' fleetwood excursion 2004 that we want to replace the carpet with a vinyl flooring product. We live in Michigan but would be willing to drive to Indiana. We have a price here in Michigan to the tune of about $7k. Just wondering about anyone that has had this done elsewhere and what it cost. We are going to Arizona in January and thought maybe a better price there. All comments welcome.

You could do it yourself for 500 bucks, it,s a lot of elbow grease, but not much skill. Find out how to do it on Utube.

Yea, what he said! Took me two weeks to do mine, at about two hours a day. Toughest job for me was pulling out all of the staples that held in the carpet. Who ever installed the carpet must have owned stock in the staple company!

We installed our own flooring two years ago, Allure by Trafficmaster at Home Depot. There is much info on this website and Youtube. We kept the carpet under the driver's & passenger seats, slide and back bedroom. Cost was around $350, lots of colors to choose from to match your cabinets & woodwork. No regrets. Has been in extreme cold and heat, no problems.

I know the responses have got off track, but I have to agree. Out of our whole remodel the floor was by far the easiest part and very inexpensive (less than $250 for ours). The remaining $6750 could buy a lot of fuel!

I'll add my two cents. What was he going to do for $7K ? Surely there was more. But if you want to spend that kind of money I'll help the guy that also wants to come to your driveway I sure could use the money, easy money. I know I'm making fun of the issue . You really could do it yourself for $500.00 or less. That ALLURE at Home Depot is good stuff and easy to put down. Anyone could do it. Please don't let someone take you for a ride in your coach.

My hubby does everything himself. Takes some work, but WAY less money. As money is harder to come by right now than time, I think you might consider doing as the others have suggested and do it yourself, save the money for something special!

Anytime hubby hears me say, why not have someone else do it? He reminds me that 7k is not just 7k, it is the hours to earn the 7k PLUS the hours to earn the taxes you paid on the 7k while working, THEN, if you put it on the credit card, it is the 7k AND interest, AND the taxes you paid when you earned the money to pay that interest! His reasoning makes my head hurt but makes his point.

And with youtube videos and the people down at the store where you buy the materials we can all do more than we think we can!

Yes, the carpet gets removed under the slide without removing the slide

What do you do to protect the new flooring from scratches from putting the slide in and out? I have searched and not really found an answer for that question. If anyone has a link to a video that shows how this is done, please post it.

No video, just experience. A lot depends on how your slide is constructed. More info is required.
