Find the "Search" feature in the window above that also has "User CP" in it. Search for "Ernie Ekberg". Ernie has provided wonderful guidance and help to many people installing new flooring in motor homes. Read some of the threads Ernie has posted in and you will probably find the answer you need.

In the mean time, you can update your signature to tell us what rig you have. This will be helpful in future posts. Go into "User CP" and "Edit your details" and "Edit your Signature"

If you mean the linoleum and not the sub floor, here's how I did mine...I cut the linoleum around all the cabinets and etc., then pulled up the lino, tossed it and bought some Trafficmaster Allure at Home Depot and installed it, following the instructions that came with the Allure. I did leave the carpet on the slide and in the living room.

Here is a pic of the finished article, not showing the bath/bedroom nor the entry:

If your slide has a flap of carpet, you can raise that and then you can cut the main floor carpet. You don't need to get under the slide. Staple the remaining carpet by the slide down and then install your hard surface. You can just lay a piece of hard surface, bring in your slide and see if the bottom of the slide moves that piece. If that happens, you can still install your new material but you will need a piece of that material on top of the new material- this will raise the slide up maybe an 1/8 of an inch to make the slide glide in. Take your time, its not a fast job to get it right.

It's held up fine so far...just did it this spring, so no cold weather yet. The old linoleum split during last winter's cold.
