Want to remodel motorhome interior

We have a 1999 Allegro Bay motorhome with one slide. We would like to take the booth out and revert to a small table and 2 chairs. Also we want to re-carpet the motor hump between the two captain's seats. Does anyone have any suggestions?

You don't say what part of the country you are in, but there are several places that do custom RV remodeling work (specializing in Tiffin motorhomes) near the Tiffin factory in Red Bay, AL. There are also places in and around Elkhart, IN.

Use the search feature of these forums and you will find a wealth of information on remodeling. Just punch in Remodel and information from do it yourselfers and people that hired it done will come up. Good luck and keep us posted on your progress.

We recently recarpeted our entire motor home.

Pull the old carpet and use it as a template.
We glued the carpet to the doghouse with 3M aerosol glue.
Worked out very well and looks great... if I do say so myself.

probably the hardest thing to deal with is that most RV's, the flooring goes down first... before built in furniture, before cabinets, aften even before interior walls!
Furniture can come out, but cabinets usually have to stay, and for sure walls have to stay, so you'll have to cut out the old flooring around them, install new, and then put in some sort of trim or 1/4 round to finish the transitions.

I saw a cool trim job just the other day, Jim M68 said to use 1/4 round to finish, great idea, but this other one I saw used rope. may have even seen it on this fourm.
Made for a unique effect.
Pick yourself a theam, nautical, western, or something different.

elensmom2... We home in Stuart FL and redid our interior this past winter. One of the changes was to replace the dinette with a built in table for two and two chairs. Right now we are in West Yellowstone for the next three months or so, but can email you lots of photos if they would help. Good luck with the redo...the effort is well worth it...it really makes the RV your own..........

Automobilist; Your age is showing.
Ellinsmom2, have a good look around for hidden electrical , rerouting it could be the worst part of the project. B-in-law's 05 Tiffin had the sub-woffer hidden behind one of the under seat drawers.
