Smile Replacing carpet in 2000 Pace Arrow Vision 36B

Hi: We live in So. Oregon. We have a 2000 Pace Arrow Vision 36B with two slide outs and a washer/dryer unit. We would like to replace the shag carpet throughout the rig. The kitchen area is the only place with real oak hardwood flooring. We have two small dogs so have decided that tile is a better option than carpet - can just use throw rugs over the tile. I don't mind leaving the hardwood flooring as is.

We contacted Countryside RV Interiors in Junction City OR for an estimate, and they came back with between $5-8K, which we find to be outrageous, just to replace the carpet with a high quality vinyl tile "look-alike".

They recommend/use Tarkett's NAFCO Permastone" vinyl composite tile because it looks real and is much lighter weight than real tile. They also use KRAUS vinyl tile.

We don't want to spend this kind of dough just for vinyl tile plus the small carpet area that covers the engine "hump" located between the two front seats.

Are these good brands of vinyl "look-alike" tile to consider for the RV? Other brands/options we should consider? Is there grouting involved or is it seamless?

Should we check the prices at our local carpet dealers (like Lipperts and Floors to Go, Home Depot) for the product and installation rather than an RV Interior "Specialist"?

Your thoughts, ideas, experiences, and suggestions much appreciated - We're not young so unless the job is pretty easy, we don't want to tackle a do it yourself job, especially with slideouts and 3 captain chairs, kitchen cabinets, etc. to contend with.

We are going to do the samething. I think we are going to go with Beufloor sheet vinyl. We're in the process of having a guy give us a estimate,sure hope it's no where near that. Jim

WOW!! 5 to 8 grand!! I used to own a hardware store in Junction City. I see things have realy changed. I now live in the Tualatin Valley.
We remodled our Rex Hall a couple of years ago and it's not that bad. The underlayment was bad -replaced it with A/C plywood. Made paterns for bedroom & cockpit to cut the carpet from. I put in new carpet pad & tack strips. The carpet will mold around the hump with out to much trouble. I used a 1/4 crown air stapler.All of the other flooring is cork snap togeather floating floor from Wilsonart. Also installed delux pad before installing the cork floor. (Lippert's can order this for you)Our dogs love the floor but not as much as we do. Very rich looking, easy to clean, soft under your feet & quiet. Use a base shoe molding for around the edges.
I do not think it cost over a $1,000. I was young (73) when I did this little project.

Hope this helps,
