If you were asking me, I had less issues on the wood flooring with the slide than I did with the factory installed tile?

The installer specified the thickness of flooring I could purchase to accommodate the slide, so it wasn't an issue for me. My '99 Eagle only had one slide (Living Room). Unless you are doing a lot of cold weather camping I don't know that I would do the heated floor, I don't know how it would radiate through the wood?

I have heated tile on my '09, I do love it but it is tile.

How does the coach wood flooring meet up with the slideout wood flooring? is the floor level when the slide is out? I was thinking of doing the same, replacing my combnation tile/carpet with wood, but am concerned there might be a difference in floor elevation when the slideout was out.

Look at post #6, that is the slide out open behind the driver's seat. They put a piece of trim on the front edge.

You have a photo of it all finished and the furniture back in place?

We had carpet and this is what we did. We love it, inlaid flooring looks like tile. Jim.

The flooring would be laminate and apparently does carry the heat through reasonably well.

People work at Bryce and there are many cool days there during the summer but spring and fall has snow days. They think the underfloor will make it more comfortable.

We camp with them in SE CA during the winter so there are many nights where the temp gets down enough so you run the heat for a bit in the morning.

It also means less changing propane tanks and running to town for propane.

That does look good. My wife is on a spree about the same thing. She want to either change out the carpet or do wood floors all the way. Most of ours is wood except the driver and slide area.

The installer put under-layment down so that the floor was the same height. He did a great job and we are happy to have that carpet gone. Jim.

Just thought about a problem we had with a older RV we had. It had wood flooring and after a while the rollers damaged them. Something to think about.

Our installer made us some panels out of the left over under-layment and we lay them down where the 4 rollers are. Works out great, we just pick them up and put them under the bed when the slides are out. Jim

you can use some luxury vinyl planks, also- generally they are 3 feet long- which is long enough for any slide to glide over
