Thanks !!

For those that have an interest in details, I had to hand blend (utility knife and sanding block) the 1/4 round into the seam strip that was used on the top of the outboard edge of the slide.

Also, the face of the slide is 3/4" oak with the top outer edge eased with a 3/8" rounding-over bit. This gives a softer edge where it meets the profile of the seam strip (which is set back from the face).

Nice job Bruce. We are in our first motor home, the DW is not fond of the sleep sofa it came with. You have paved the way for me. I hope one day to do a similar project. Yours looks really good, nice craftsmanship.

Tore out more carpet today. Carpet on box over Onan was a real PITA !! Seats unbolted without drama. I'm going to raise the seat pedestals about 1/4" to allow the floor to float under the bases. Rebuild part of the entrance steps due to some water damage on lowest step (probably due to rain with the door open). 3 more bags of carpet to the dumps. Have pics but left the camera back in the RV. Maybe tomorrow.

Bruce- since you are going thru this- get some wood plugs and sand them smooth to cover your screws.

Thanks Ernie. Thought about it but the only exposed screws are in wood that's only 3/16" thick. If I countersink any deeper I won't have enough "meat" left.

If you do this again, try and rough the back of your trim and use liquid nails to adhere it to your plywood. I do like your tip on rounding the corners on the outside corners. Those things can make a mess out of your ankles.

About 1/3 of the way .... I am going to use Allure in the driver footwell .... not sure yet for passenger footwell. Entry steps are also going to be Allure.

You can use some rubber bullnose for the steps instead of metal

There is no gold/brass remaining in the RV .... Everything is oiled bronze finish.

Just remembered .... the inside handrail is a patina'd brass ... like an old boat.

Today's progress .... nearly done with the driver's area. Took an hour to cut the stupid template .... some new lumps on my noggin from trying to stand up while still under the steering wheel. Curves are harder than expected when working with Allure. Straight lines aren't bad ... a few scores and it snaps like sheetrock, then a finish cut from the back. Vertical panel behind steering column is removable to access the Allison module. Plywood shim under seat pedestal so seat pedestal mounting plate is slightly above hardwood. Floor is still able to float under pedestal.

I am in the process of replacing our carpets with flooring as well and was contemplating using the "snap/clik" laminate style, howeve my concern is would the potential flexing movement of the MH frame cause the flooring to come apart?
Hence i'm looking at the various vinyl products available, do you have any advice from previous experiences?
Thanks Hicksie
