New flooring

Just started to tear out old flooring. Took out the furniture and started taring stuff out. I'm having a guy put it in but took some of it out too help him out. I'm not a floor layer or a carpenter so I leave that to the Pro's. Hope to get it in by mid-April. Jim

My concern is how to deal with the slide. How do you get the carpet out from under the slide and replace with whatever. The steps I think would be easy enough.

Cannot have enough pictures

My concerns on the step well is how do you transition from the floor to the sides of the wells.

Stair nose wood or vinyl. If you are installing vinyl, install the sides and floor first. The vinyl stair nose is a top set trim.
If you are installing wood, start with installing the stair nose wood, first and then proceed with factory edge to factory edge wood planks.
If you use gold metal- sorry- I can't stand the stuff.

when the installer gets there, have him help you remove the captains chairs- will make the job easier

I'm going to take it to him, he said he would take them out and put them back when done. I was really happy about the staple removal, I heard a lot of nightmare stories about removal. There wern't that many in my case and it was easy. Jim

Jim,

Are you having the bedroom floor replaced also? I too have a Dutch Star, their is a hump in front of the rear closet that is not part of an access hatch to the motor. Wanting to replace the carpet next year with eng wood, I would love to see how your installed worked around the hump.

Thanks, Jeff

Look at my steps in my revolution thread around my engine access cover if that helps.

Not doing the Bathroom and bedroom. I am going to just go from the Bathroom door to the front.We just can't stand having the carpet in the front of the MH so decided to change it. We are at kind of a stand still as we can't seem to find a flooring that is good in all weather conditions. We store in the cold during winter and don't want it to crack. Wanted Beuflor but can't seem to find a dealer around here. Jim
