We head up to the motorhome on saturday (to hopefully buy it if everything goes right). I will be sure to pay close attention to which direction the floor is laid.

The Painting and floor repairs are done and we started the flooring. This allure is so easy to install providing your back and knees are up to bending over and squatting down a lot. We plan to finish the second half tomorrow.

The only mistakes we made were cutting the wrong end of one plank and making a hole for a thru floor bolt about 1/4 inch off, luckily that hole is behind the couch and unseen.

We chose the teak floor and installed it from side to side, I was afraid it would be too dark but my wife was right it is a good color choice

That looks great! You and your wife did a nice job. You should have no problem whipping through the second day. :-)

Thank you, It looks better then we expected, we are up to the dinette and then the hallway and every piece fron there on must be cut and fitted. When we start on the actual hallway part we were wondering about the staggering of joints.

Should we make every other row the same (one row a full sheet the next joned in the middle, then a full sheet and so on) or just randomly stagger them as we go??????????? the hall is seven feet long.

Or make every row a single sheet with no joints

I'd suggest continuing with your staggered pattern. IMO it'll look "funny" if the pattern changes (or disappears). I know it's more work with measuring and cutting, but this way the look will remain consistent throughout your coach. :-)

We took your advice and continued with the staggered pattern, It was easier to cut the little notches here and there around corners and door ways.
This Allure flooring is super easy to install and cut the ends with a razor knife score and a decent pair of scissors for the notches.

Here is a few pics of the job and the final product, it changed the whole appearance of our RV. We chose the Teak Pattern oif Allure

That looks absolutely wonderful! You did good work there. :-)

Your pics should help others decide which way to install a new floor. Thanks for taking time to snap the pics and sharing them here.

It was so easy to make almost perfect cuts every time going sideways that we do not need to put down quarter round trim.
My wife wants it anyway, she said it will make it look finished, Now I gotta get the tim, stain it, cut it, install it etc etc etc, she thinks up new jobs for me faster then I can breath, guess she hates the idea of me out fishing.

What if you paint the trim instead of staining it? That would save some time, and would be easier to touch-up (and keep clean) over the months/years. A muted eggshell or satin finish for the paint would likely match the small shine on the floor quite nicely. The floor's wood pattern has different shades and "colors," but If you took a piece of the floor to the paint place they could probably still create a good match for the trim.

Well, whatever you decide, it'll look good. Choosing quality materials, and making the effort to install them properly, almost always equals excellent results.

Keep us posted on your progress with the quarter-round! :-)

You can buy simulated woodgrain quarter round at Lowes. No muss no fuss....

I went side to side on my non slide coach. I removed the dinette, couch, old carpet and chair to make it easy.
When I passed by the entry stairs... I used a jig saw and drill to trim the area in.
