New Flooring

Just finished replacing the flooring in our Winnebago. Rather than post the pictures and words on here, you can click on the link to our blog http://travelinthomas.blogspot.com/ and see the project and the results.

Looks great! I know the feeling that simply replacing the floor can make. Hope you enjoy for years. By the way, appreciate the manner that you posted it on your blog. Thanks

It is so unfortunate. Unfortunate in the fact that my dear wife will see this thread and want the same thing in our 2008 Destination. Is there any chance I can park next to you somewhere and get your expert technical advice?

Great job. Another unfortunate thing is that I have had one knee replaced, and the other one needs to be replaced, plus both rotators cuffs repaired. However, there is an alternative to growing old, and I don't like it.

Again, great job. I'm wish it were ours.

Wayne

The hardest part was removing the old flooring and the 10 pounds of staples. I know it was labor intensive but the quotes for labor were too much for me to consider professional installation. I made a few cutting mistakes but was able to use the mistake pieces in other places.

I don't think my knees would stand another project like it. My grandson was a big help also.

By the way, my Dad said there is only one alternative to growing old.

Wayne,
It would be a lay down job for me. There is no way I can get on my knees. Two ACL reconstructions, one knee replacement, the other needing replacment. The knees are gone - kaput. But I can roll on the floor at different angles now, doing things that I used to do on my knees. Do you have a detailed description of your trials and tribulations?

The toughest part was dealing with the removal of the carpet and vinyl where it goes under the slides. I did most of it while laying on the floor. I removed the dinette benches to facilitate the replacement and also removed the toilet.

I may need knee surgery myself now.

thats exactly the flooring we are going to put in our rv. and we are also going to leave the bedroom and cockpit alone, as well as the carpet under the furnishings. good sound proofing. and that much easier.

W4MBG,
Nice idea. When it is done, post some pictures and details. Then I'll try to park between you and Wayne for expert advice and demonstrations on my coach.

It look awesome, Wayne, and will be a lot easier to keep clean when you are on the road!

The other nice thing, about floating floors is going to/from different climates. Example dry to humid to dry. You won't have to worry about it cracking, like traditional flooring as it can expand and contract easily (not being glued to the subfloor).

You guys did a great job!

Sheila
