m/h remodel

We have had our 2006 hr endeavor for over 4 months now and we need a remodel. I think it will be less expensive than looking for a newer unit. we are fulltimers. We would like to put down vinyl plank flooring, new tv's, new valances and shades, etc. We will be wintering in ft. pierce fl and would like to know if anyone knows if this work can be done while we are living in it. We can't do the work ourselves so we have to get it done professionally. Does anyone know where we can get this done, I got one estimate just for the flooring and that was well over $7,000. I don't want to be ripped off, just pay the right amount. Thanks for all your help, we will be seeing y'all at the rally.

Sounds like a rip off. We did our own vinyl plank flooring for less than $400. Took a couple days work, but we could have lived in the rv while doing it if we had to. At the time it was parked in our home driveway.

For the non-DIY crowd, I've gotten flooring estimates of $2,000 or less, depending upon materials (but then we got a new puppy so I figured... no new floors for now! )

I suggest you keep getting quotes. I did mine in two different RV's and did it myself, agreed I saved labor but the price you were quoted will send the installer south for the winter at your expense. Alot of good people out there that are out of work and would be able to help you out. Good luck in your search.

We did our 35 footer in Allure vinyl planking for $400. Let's say your material will cost $700. I did mine by myself in 2 days. Pros can do it in one. Now figure out what is reasonable to pay 1 or 2 men to work for 8 hours in Fl. I would say $1100 max. $200 @ day is a super wage in FL.

Valances are just plywood covered with material. A nice material is going to be in the area of $30 @ yd. I did our 8 valances in 8 hours using a pair of scissors and a staple gun. Again, do the math. I've never seen any kind of RV shade that wouldn't take more than 15 mins to install with the correct size in hand. I don't know what all else you are thinking about having done, but let me leave you with this thought.

Florida is riddled with mobile RV repair businesses and you will have no problem finding someone to do your work, especially in the more prominent resort areas. When they arrive and see your custom painted HR with matching trailer and show Corvette, the price will at least double. If they told me $10,000, I would laugh and say $5000 tops. If they don't budge, Just tell them I have 5 more bidders coming, then watch what they do
