Floor Renovations in a class A-any suggestions?

I have a 1986/85 Travelcraft that's in workable shape, but I would like to do some major overhaul on it. First off, the original pink carpet- I want to rip it up and put in tile or laminate (preferably something lightweight, fire-retardant and relatively inexpensive - and yes, I will shop around), but I'm looking for suggestions before i start something and make it harder than it has to be. Anybody replaced their carpet with something like that? If you've got before and after pics I'd love to see them! If anyone's interested, I'll try to post pics (tried steam cleaning it, but there's really no saving it).

Thanks!

>Monica

Wow

How long did the whole process take you? The carpet stripping; ect. Did you use snap-in wood for the flooring? It looks amazing, thank you for sending pics!

From start to finish about 8 hrs and it was snap type flooring and the trim fits in a track that is screwed down and the finish trim pops in the track to hold it

Look through some of the photos on my site an look at the different jobs there are floor, roofs, walls all sorts of work done there a lot of pictures so it will take some time to see it all

Hi Monica and welcome to the forum!

The pics above are beautiful but I just don't see how you can give up that 25 year old pink carpet!

Best of luck to you.

Rick
