I wish we could have done 100% vinyl, but just couldn't figure out a good way to make it work.

Oh, and the carpet in front, on the sides, and in the bedroom is all new. So much nicer than the OEM carpet!

Jeff, I just completed an Itasca. It had the same issue with the slide. I gave the clients some pieces of vinyl planks and they put those down and then operate the slide. The slide comes right in on top of that. No scratches

Ernie, I'm going to conveniently ignore your post. That way, the DW won't know there was another way. No more trips to Home Depot, I'm done with flooring.
Hugh, I'll see about a thread for the trip. We leave next Saturday and will be gone for 2 weeks. Can't wait!!

Ernie,

I'm using a couple of spare pieces of vinyl for my slide to ride in on.. but I have to have someone stand on it or it moves in with the slide. I have tried riveting a lip on it which didn't work and have tried putting down velcro under the carpet and on the spare vinyl.. kinda does and doesn't work.. any trick you have?

Great pics and nice job. I have the same setup and want to also change the dining area and bedroom from carpet to wood. Is this possible/easy to do? Is there a reason they use carpet there?

Last year we removed the drivers slide carpet and replaced with vinyl flooring. I have attached a copy of my post on that. Sorry do not know how attach any other way.

This flooring has held up super over the past year. Every time I sweep the floor I am grateful to be rid of the carpet.

Great job. We have exact setup. I wonder if bedroom is as easy to change? Any reason not to use tiles to match the rest of the coach?

Would think the bedroom would not be any more difficult than the rest of the coach. We stayed with carpet for a couple of reasons:
Not as cold when your feet first hit it in the morning.
I just like carpet in the bedroom.
Our engine access is in the closet. We laid the carpet, but didn't attach it in order to make that access easier.

Buff- standing on those pieces will work- or tape it down with duct tape.
Jeff- your coach looks swell- have a safe trip north

I like the wood and carpet look.

My slide (I think it's an HWH system) has sliders that are covered with a fiberglass type of mesh. They slide over the carpet and I can see the slide marks. What could be done with that kind of slide system?

All I can think of is placing a thin strip of metal or teflon along the slide route, or keeping carpet in that area. Thoughts of how to do it "right"?
