Interesting. I've always kept aware from vinyl because of a bad experience in the past with the adhesive on the back of the tiles not sticking or coming un-stuck. I just re-did our stick house floors in composite floor and was real happy with how that went down.

I'm leaning towards vinyl simply from a thickness and weight factor.

OH, and for the doghouse I'm probably going to slaughter a few naughas and use their hydes. I like what clyon51 did with his but want something more stain/water proof than leather. (The family seems to love to spill large soft-drinks on and about the console of the car. I can only imagine that happening even more so in the mh.)

"Ultra Leather" is not leather. It's actually better than vinyl to clean. We used it because of the dogs and cleans up easy with a damp sponge or rag. I even spilled wood stain on it and it wiped right off.

I am not at all artistic, but I was amazed at how good it came out.
Fantastic...now where's the pictures for the rest of us?

That was just the start. It was a 1975 Airstream Argosy. Of course it was orange inside. We recovered the tables and countertops with new formica. All new carpet. We drove over to the carwash every night at midnight. Bought a case of paint stripper and stripped the old paint. We spent one and a half hours stripping paint and forty five minutes cleaning the wash bay. (That is why we went at midnight, The owner would have called the police, it he had seen what we did to his car wash.) Of course it looked like new, when we got through cleaning it up. We sanded and prepped the motorhome and drove it to a painter. We taped it off in the parking lot of the painter. We bought the paint and they painted it for five hundred dollars. I regret to this day that I did not take pictures of the inside. I do have a couple of pictures of the paint stripping and the new paint job. If my daughter comes over and I think of it, I will have her post a couple of pictures of the outside.
