New floor

Still a bit of trim and so forth to go. Moved pass front seat back a bit to gain a little more clearance when entering , Removed 2nd pass side recliner and got this cheap futon . Being this coach is set up for a retired couple and I travel with wife and two grown kids most of the time I needed 4 places to sleep. Also I removed the magazine rack/bookshelf that was behind the sofa in the slide out area and gained 6 inches of space. I love this floor which is a water resistant clickn lock by Shaw. I have put down several thousand square feet of various brands of click n lock in several homes in the past including my own home and find it easy to maintain. While I was at it I rebuilt my traveler toilet, new seals and so forth. I am going to order some new rubber treads for the steps in a color that goes with the new floor. As you can see , these are now a bit short on each side being the stairwell was carpeted on the sides( yuck) Am fixin to put pvc bead board up om walls above wainscoting, will do some before and after pic.

It looks really good. I did my floor last year and used the Allure flooring very easy to maintain.

Nice job.

Where are you going to buy these new rubber treads? Would love a link.

They’ll order the different colors. Takes about a week usually. I install it in most rvs when we change flooring. We use lamination glue as so can’t move at all.

In an RV with slides should the flooring stay floating or be glued down?

This floor is floating, I had already put it in bedroom last year with no problems. Having a slide out really makes no difference but I will add on a bit of a different subject that in my coach (2002 fleetwood revolution) when the slide out is moving in or out ,there is a point that it slightly runs the floor, never noticed when it was carpet , was no wear noticed . so I have been just laying a scrap peice of the flooring under where the contact is made, it is the front most edge of the slideout right behind the drivers seat, I have done an adjustment on the slideout mechanism but the actual problem is that there is a point where the slide out tilts a bit coming in or out and no adjustment as of yet has changed that.

I had the same problem with slides, I just use a strip of clear vinyl on floor and seems to work well.
