Manny- that is the false information I hear all the time. It is too bad, with all the coaches that folks love and want to keep and renovate them, these dealers don't have a clue how to think positively and do the research, like I have done to help folks out. ernie

We are looking to replace a couch with a pair something like them.

Thanks
Thank you! Our chairs came from Lambright Custom Chairs in Shipshewana, IN. There are many styles available.

2. The slate floor is VERY heavy at about 5# per square foot. A quick estimate indicates that we could remove nearly 300# off of the front axle removing it and replacing it with wood. Since we are running right at the maximum front axle weight...this is a big deal.
Don, does your drivers side front slide raise up when it comes in? We have thought of changing the carpet to wood, but would like to see how this would work with the raised slide so no one gets hurt on edge going to the back. Ernie, Maybe you could help with question. Have seen pics of other coaches you have done, and must say they have been beautiful.
Thanks.

Any slide with wood stair nose has an outside corner. These are relatively sharp edges when retracted. Most folks put a pillow against those when travelling and that helps their ankles. There is no other way to accomplish a wood floored slide, that I know of.

If the carpet is removed and engineered flooring is installed in it's place, shouldn't scratch the flooring correct ? I have also been seriously considering it. I did my entire home in Brazilian Cherry and swore I would never have carpet again.

We are considering just replacing the old carpet in our big slide with carpet and keeping the carpet ring on the floor too. Our main reason is that we plan on removing the couch and replacing it with euro chairs. This would allow for the flush fitting and being able to pull the chairs out towards the center a bit without the "ledge" of a wood floored slide.

scratches

Folks, any hard surface flooring material will scratch. Its the nature of the beast. When things move- people with a pebble imbedded in their tennis, slides, rollers, etc. The best thing and what we do, is have a rug just as you come in on the top landing. Also- I add a rug outside.
I have found that the engineered wood that is the handscraped variety, hides scratches better. I use some stain or old English scratch cover. 99% of the time, the scratches blend in.
With luxury vinyl tile or planks, or any of the floating floors, these scratches are hard to mask.
I have provided pieces of luxury planks to place under questionable areas of the slide. This helps raise the slide just a bit to help the slide come in.
Those folks with coaches that have the raised and elevated slides that totally rely on the arms under the coach don't have any worries.
I'm going to start a new thread on the tips I can give for carpet removal.

I usually cut the carpet about an inch from the slide. Then I use a small pry bar and start by captains chair and pry the carpet up. You can go outside and look at the rubber seal under the slide. pull that down and you can get at the edge of carpet there. I use a pair of channel locks for extra grip for my old hands
