Will you tackle waxing the whole coach at once, or a side at a time?
The carpet is original, and will likely look fairly bad even after I steam clean it this week. I think the only tackling I'll be doing for the carpet replacement is tackling my wallet as it tries to run away!
I think we'll look into the wood look vinyl flooring. We have it in our kitchen and you can't tell it isn't real wood. It is a bit more expensive than cheap laminate flooring, but better for the wet areas.

That sounds like a great idea!

Here's what I did with our bathroom, wasn't all that bad to do, it was carpet as said, tile, made new cabinet and top, same sink, new faucet and toilet. Tore out the carpet in the hallway this winter and tiled that too
