Cool Ideas for flooring

Hey guys,

New to the forums and wanted to get some suggestions from you. My husband and I recently bought a 93 Minnie Winnie which I am dying to remodel. Right now it has tons of blue and is just pretty bland looking. I love the retro/vintage look of the older rvs and want to try to remodel ours to look more like that.

We have two dogs who will be joining us on a majority of our trips and two cats who will coming with us when we move from NJ to AZ. I think the carpet will be too difficult to keep looking clean with all of the animals but that they might slide all around on vinyl/hardwood flooring.

In keeping with the 'retro' look, I've got the crazy idea in my head to use astroturf instead. I know some people use it on the steps or have rugs to use outside but I haven't been able to find anything about it being used for the indoor flooring.

Anyone have any experience with this or is this a crazy idea?

We fulltime with a St. Bernard and 2 cats, and a few months ago we pulled out all the carpet and laid down Armstrong vinyl laminate flooring.

The critters have no difficulty with the slipperiness of the floor, and sweeping is much easier than the constant vacuuming.

I personally would not use the Astroturf- it would seem to me that it would be even harder to keep the dog hair out of than carpet.

But then, a MH from 1993 doesn't seem very old or "retro" to me- must mean I'm pretty old myself.

Haha, no I want to make it look more retro. Right now it's pretty boring looking. I saw someone's MH in the vintage part of the forum that I really loved but I can't seem to find it right now. I believe it was from the early 70s.
