Take a look at post #75 to see how I did it. Maybe this will give you some ideas!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Another flooring question

Revolution Flooring

I completed the flooring upgrade in my 2007 Revolution last year. I wanted more tile and less carpet but Fleetwood did not recommend full ceramic tile in my 40E even though we had seen pictures on line with that option. It would reduce the cargo capacity by about 5# per square foot of new tile. So we went with some additional tile so that the kitchen was fully tiled to the dinning area, full tile in the entry way over to the drivers area and full tile in the rear bath. Fortunately I was able to get the same color from Fleetwood so I didn't have to remove too much of the existing tile. Fleetwood uses an epoxy glue that softens with heat. I used a clothes iron set on high and warmed the tile (and glue) up and then slid several thin putty knives under the tile to pop it off, usually with most of the glue. There was a 1/4" underlayment beneath the tiled areas so that the carpet was the same height level. The engineered hardwood I installed in the living area was the same thickness as the ceramic tile so I used the 1/4" underlayment again. The hardwood is not as durable as I would have liked it to be as it tends to scratch too easily. We love the finished product and would not hesitate to do it again!

We have an 06 Revo and plan to replace the carpet next month. I have concerns about using wood and considering Vinyl Plank flooring. Don't know how I'll transition to the ceramic tile. Great news that I might be able to pull it up with heat. I can then use my tile saw and end it at the hallway. Did you have any problems with the driver side slide?

Mocauttx50,

We considered vinyl plank too, but I hated to have to remove so much good tile. You will have to use 1/4" plywood where the carpet was removed and then still have a 1/4" difference from the tiled area to the vinyl plank as the tile is 3/8" thick and the vinyl only 1/8" or so. You could use a metal strip or maybe find a wood molding at a flooring store. No problems with my drivers slide, although I do use a protective sheet of plastic where the slide roller contact the wood flooring.
