Allure flooring install.[/QUOT

Wow that is a great job, how long to install I think it looks great!
thanks for the photos



Well this was quite a job well done! I like the tile you chose and I see you have a 'sweetheart' too,,
I think this is what I prefer as I am trying to play down the 'wood' in the RV,
... some wood works for me but I do prefer less of it... I think I will be painting..
Off to see what is available at Home Depot, a friend said they had a sale on flooring for a few more days...

Thank you both for your thoughts and photos... I can do this!!
My job took about 40 hours. Took a whole day to remove carpeting and vinyl. Installed the flooring in 8 hours, 2 people. Rest of the time went into putting in trim, finishing it and reinstalling things taken out of RV.

I use slide slickers to protect floor. They protect carpeting and other flooring from slides.

Think this will have to wait for spring, it is 55F (-13C ) and a storm heading in tonight


I guess it will take me more time as I am by myself. Thanks for the info gives me a timeline. Spring and summer is my guess!!

As for the sliders, took a look and am I correct to assume they just go into place when ready to slide and removed when done?

Yes, they are put in place before putting slide in. Then removed when slide is out.

if you don't want the expense of those slickers, use a couple of those vinyl planks- does the same thing

A cheaper alternative to Slide Slickers is to just use a couple of pieces of left over Allure.

Will any tile do?? perhaps the sides of a plastic milk jug migt also work

I get the impression anything 'slippery' will do the trick to remove friction on the carpet... thanks.

If one removes the carpet everywhere and tiles the slide should one still use the slider when moving out or in? wouldn't there be more space if carpet is gone? just curious...

I have tried pieces of Allure which is 3/16" thick. It works, but wants to slide unless something is put on back to stop movement. The slide slickers have a couple strips of vinyl foam on back to make them stay in place. Top surface is slick to make slide move over it easily. The price is expensive but works very well. I watched EBAY until I found 2 sets for less than $40.

most times, the front part of slide will be the part that impacts the main floor. removing carpet and installing hard surface will lessen the height

Wow. Great workmanship. I looked at each and every photo you guys posted. Even zoomed in on many. Starting to get more confidence. I too am alone, except for my wife who is always great help.

We have two small dogs, but the carpet color in our Adventurer is such, that it shows dirt.

This thread is proof that pictures really tell a story.

Thanks to all for sharing.

A quick follow-up to the allure installation. Allure does not recommend for use in RVs due to temperature and movement. Has anyone had any problems with adhesion or flexing? Did you use the glue on or ultra which snaps together. They also say to leave room for expansion and contraction? We live in the SF Bay Area and use the coach monthly, but it does see temperature fluctuations.
Thanks
