Question - Want To Change Flooring to wood or laminate

We are from CA. We have a 2006 40' Monaco Camelot, 4 slide outs. We want to change the carpet and tile to wood or laminate that looks like wood. We want a professional to do it. What are the pros and cons of these products? Anyone have experience with their coach? Likes or dislikes? Can radiant heat be put under these floors?

Radiant heat - I love the idea.

I see no reason that it couldn't be done, but you would probably want to add some insulation below it, which requires raising the floor. That would require looking carefully at how that impacts everything - access, brake & gas pedal height, etc. You might choose to only install it in certain areas (bedroom, bath, etc.) where there will be a minimum of such problems.

Would it be electric or water? How will that fit in with your current heating system? The extra flexing in a MH as compared to a stable traditional building might cause early failure.
