What do you do for NEW flooring??

Just want some opinions on what most of you do when you need new flooring in your RV. I am a flooring guy by trade for the last 35 years....well....all my working life. I have done a number of installations
in all types of RV's. I guess my question is as my DW and I contiplate hitting the road in the near future, how many RV'ers out there would use a business that specializes in RV installations of vinyl, carpet, tile, laminate,
hardwood, and other floating floor options. We will be traveling texas and west up the coast to Seattle and loop back south again. Any opinions?THANKS!!!

I was looking for someone to install a floating Pergo floor last month. It was going to be a very small job as I only needed the galley, hall and bathroom done. Could not find anyone mobile that wanted to do this small of a job. I did it myself and it came out very nice.

I'm sure that You could make a comfortable income doing mobile installations. The biggest hurdle would be getting Your business advertised in the places that You intend to visit!

Some enterprising Mobile RV Repair people that I have come across leave Post Card sized brochures on RV Windshields at Shopping Centers.
I'm not so sure that folks who are actually travelling would be interested in changing out the Flooring.However those who are staying for a Month or more in an RV Park would be better prospects.
Of course there may be business license considerations and the RV Parks might not allow solicitations on Their premises.

ooh, ooh, me, me *wildly waving hand*!!!

DH and I are going have the carpet removed and vinyl/linoleum put down in our moho in the fall. We know someone who owns a flooring store, but he has never done work in a moho.

When will you be in So Cal??

Depends on pricing. I had quotes of $3500 to $4000 to replace 8 X 20 in our MH. I decided to do it myself and used Allure plank vinyl. Total material cost was less than $500. I couldn't find any one local that would do flooring in an RV. I think $1000 to $1200 for labor would have been a fair price.
