Thanks Hicksie

My experience has only been with brick/stick house. I've done multiple engineered wood floating floors leaving 1/4" gap at walls and never had a problem. Motorhomes are much smaller and I do not anticipate any issues with contraction/expansion. I have no experience with vinyl ... this is a first (the driver's area). The Allure I'm using is not "click" flooring.

Any vinyl product you wish to cut, I always use a propane torch to heat the back, so my knife cuts thru like butter. A sharp knife and slick, cold surface can result in cut fingers. Ask me how I know these things?

A bit more progress. Another few rows of flooring and the "Onan box" is covered in flooring. I'm taking the opportunity to move the tray/cup holder assembly to the right a few inches. If you look at the original (with carpet) you can see the manufacturer centered the tray/cup holder over the "Onan box". However, that's not the center of the upper console. So .... when you pull the tray out, the right cup holder is closer to the curved bezel than the left cup holder. it's enough that you can't fit a mug in the right cup holder .... weird. So ... I'm gonna' fix it.

Trim is in the garage getting stain. I'm guessing at another 3 days or so to complete the project.

This is how we had ours done. They (I think) screwed a piece of 3/4" plywood onto the existing floor and went from there.
The two new LazyBoys fit like a glove along with a new custom cabinet between them. (Beer holder is a piece of Corain that matches the rest of the counter tops)
We are very happy with the reno. Hated the old couch. Good bye old couch.
Total reno was done by Truline in Spokane. Check it out on their website.
