Ernie, would materials be around $1000 do you think? So about $3500 for my coach? Mayhaps I overreacted b/c the hourly was so high....

Jeff, and others that maybe following this thread: first quality materials can be all over the charts- depending on your taste. I usually plan for a coach to be here from 5-15 days. It all depend on if you are able to demo, like Jeff did, which would cut the installation time.
I always encourage owners to be hands on with me, to not only see the complexity , but to also witness how your coach is fabricated from a flooring point of view. It is an education as every coach is different

Jeff,.. you sure you don't need a quick trip to Weatherford Tx before you go to Maine?

Either that, or convince Ernie to take a working vacation in Flowery Branch, GA.
It's beautiful here, Ernie.

Funny you mention removing that film. A local shop was doing a CC and doing it the old-fashioned way; plastic putty knife and some form of GoofOff. I was amazed at how little got done per minute, and asked the owner what a job like that might cost.

"Same rate as anything else we do, $95/hour". He figured about $2500 to remove the old film.

I was FLOORED, (which lets me tie into this thread, lol)

How does that compare with your results/cost?

Not to hijack the tread but 26 hours, plastic razor blades, heat gun and Xylol xylene. PM me if you'd like additional info.

I've been enjoying this post on the floor removal, but it sounds like a major under taking. I'll keep reading and learning then make my decision on doing.

Well, I guess it's time for an update. I gave up trying to do it myself. Just couldn't find the time to get it done before our big trip. I found a guy fairly close by who could do it and I let him have at it.
Picked it up today, and it looks great! I don't think I could have done as nice of a job. Kudos to Kurt at Kurt's Carpet Warehouse in Auburn, GA.
Also, many thanks to Ernie Ekberg, Hugmongus, and the rest of y'all who commented and advised me through this process.
Now, new TV and new tires...Click image for larger version

I wonder.. Removing the glued to metal carpet.....

There is a device called a Hammer Drill.. I used to own one till I accidently hammered it.. Some of them have a 3 position dial

Drill
Hammer drill
Hammer

Put a chisel "Bit" in it (wide one) and perhaps that would "hammer" it loose

Of course an electric Jack Hammer is .. a very heavy duty version of the above.

I also have an air powered chisel but not really enough air for big jobs. Works well on little ones though.
