Looks great.....You don't often recognize the name of the installer, but Ernie has built quite a name for himself.

Beautiful result.

Just picked up 217sqft of acacia and I would be happy if it comes out half that nice. The cream carpet in the bedroom looks very good with your wood choice.

If you want a quality job you hire someone who knows RV's. Ernie does and his work shows it. Quality work.

if you want to do it yourself, please go slow and think way ahead of how the material will be impacted by your slides, etc

Looks great, I have a couple questions? You did the slide and drivers area, I want to do both area's also. So, is your slide a drop down? Not sure of the correct terminology for that, but when extended the slide drops into place? If so, Is that a solid floor on the slide? looks like a bull nose or threshold trim for a seam? Do you put something down to protect the floor when extending or retracting? I get two marks in the carpet, divot, when the slide is retracted now, don't see any drag marks.
Steps, what did you do in the steps? Looks like Hickory, is it?

Actually the wood is acacia.
The way our drop down slide is engineered we do have to use a 'skid pad' when when retracting or extending. We use the thin 'plastic' cutting boards. They seem to work better than the pieces of vinyl that Ernie gave us.
Not sure what you mean by 'solid floor on slide'. The slide floor was extended slightly and bull nose trim used. Here's a picture of the steps:Click image for larger version

There is led lighting under the bull nose on steps.

I quess what I'm asking is how did you get the slide floor to meet the main floor smoothly? you extended the floor on the slide? Did you use subfloor on main area? How thick of floor did you put down on the slide? If you used a thicker subfloor on the slide, then you had to raise the main floor to meet?

Actually, the floors are not level. The slide is the thickness of the new floor higher.

you have to add a piece of plywood to extend the slide floor past where the rollers dip down. The stair nose- in a "perfect slide world" rests on the main floor when extended.

I hate to be the one, but how much did this cost? It's beautiful.

It depends on the quality product you choose and how much you have done. You can do some of the destroy yourself to save a little bit. Our coach was just under 5 big ones.

Ernie Ekberg, I wish you weren't 800 miles from my Pensacola, Florida home. My floor sure could use some of your craftmanship. You don't know anyone with your skills around North Florida, do you?
