Looks good. We have a 2006 Dutch Star and are getting motivated to do a similar project.

Color of floor looks like it matches the wood trim.

We are thinking of a similar project. Are you using laminate flooring or hard wood? We have carpet and laminate tile currently and the carpet is a light color that shows everything. Laminate tile shows scratches where the slide rubs across. Love the color of your floor. Thanks for sharing with us.

It looks like you are doing a floating floor. My current floor is glue down and I figured the new one should also glue down. What made you choose a floating floor? I am also concerned about the full wall slide damaging the surface when moving. Was this a concern for you?

any hard surface will show scratches if- 1- the slide is too low, or 2- if you have dirt on your floor.

I have not run the slide across it yet. I had some left over laminant from my last coach that is the same thickness and I ran the slide over it to make sure it worked. On the test pieces I didn't even bevel the edge and it came right up. On the keeper floor I beveled the leadign edge under the slide rollers, so it should work fine. There were no issues. I don't want to run over this floor until it is done so that it does not move it.

Ernie, it is pretty close. The floor is Victoria Cherry and the cabinets/trim are Cherry. The floor is a little darker and in person is noticably different.

I am using laminant. We had pretty good luck with it in our old coach, so trying it again. We thought about going with engineered wood but talked ourselves out of it.

Yes, scratching is a concern. I don't have slides on my slide, I have four 12" rollers. I am probably going to come up with something to put under the rollers. I suspect we will get some scratches, but with two large dags carpet just doesn't work. So even a few light scratches is better than nasty carpet. we will do everything we can to keep it from scratching though.
