Replacement floor

Just finished replacing major portion of my carpet with "Pergo Laminate". I considered Allure, but my nearest Home Depot is 80 mi. My closest "Ollies Discount" is 10 and they had a Pergo sell out at $14.95/Bx. I've read all the threads and concerns, decided the Pergo might be a good option, but I experimented first with a piece of Pergo. I set it on the sink and let water stand on it's surface for about an hour, no deterioration noted. I then placed the sample in the sink full of water for an hour then let it air dry overnight, no deterioration. I felt it was cheap enough and durable enough to give it a go, nothing ventured nothing gained. The hardest part of the project was dealing with the dirty, and sand impregnated carpet and pad, and of course the multitude of staples. I left the carpet in the bedroom area because of it fairly good condition. I also left it in the cockpit area mainly because the cab area is a steel floor with a lot of uneven area and a lot of cuts and difficult areas to trim. I felt the project went well and was cheap enough...about $250 with Laminate and trim. I was able to get the transition trim at Lowes. The most difficult time was when I crossed my fingers and pressed the Retract button on the slide and Re Extended it....No Problems. The project took a couple of weeks, but only because I limited my project work periods. When I worked beyond my times I made some pretty stupid mistakes. I've attached some project photos and the rest are in the Photo section under members galleries: (BlueLine)

Here is a guy that makes a living installing new flooring in RVs. I believe he works out of Texas.

Hey Blueline, thanks for the pics. Great job. I will lay the new floor early March. I, like you, left the carpet in the bedroom and cockpit and am thinking of leaving it around the stairs.

No, that would be the way I tend to do it.... I recommend now measure 4 times in two different ways and cut once. So much for life experience.

We are replacing our flooring and are going to use a luxury fiberglass mesh back roll vinyl and was wondering if any type of heated flooring could be used underneath it. I saw the link for RV Step Warmfloor earlier in this thread, would love to have warm floors but not sure about using them under vinyl.

Chickenman -

That looks GREAT! A job to be proud of. I did that in my first MH. I enjoyed the new floor so much, it made me wonder why they put so much carpet in motorhomes! Enjoy!

As much as I appreciate a warm carpet on a cold morning, I gutted the carpeting in my home years ago for a laminate floor and will be doing the same to my coach next year.

Good job everyone on their remodels. They look great .

Have a question on putting in hardwood floor in a 03 he with a slide. How does that work on the slide out to attach. And if anyone know for now if I shampoo the carpet using a Hoover carpet shampooer do I have to use it different in a RV and slide out because of the water.
