Gocoffeer,
I see your reasoning and purpose. What I'm envisioning is simply a rolling, "Man cave" type mobile garage. I don't know if you've seen them or not but, there's garages out there that are nicer some of the rooms in our home. So, yes, now realize your intent. Awaiting pictures.
Scott

You might be right in the mobile garage type setup.... or PLAYROOM.... We had put down a rolled type garage flooring in place of the carpet. Wanted something impervious to bike cleats and dog feet. The flooring is a dream to maintain compared to the carpet. Started to make some of the baggage bays into specialty bike compartments.... tools, compressor, trailer storage type stuff. Would love to have a similar Bounder but in 36+foot with the washer dryer and shower separate from the toilet floorplan.... but I got this rig cheap nuff to make it into the locker room we want. I do get stares from cycle people as they pull in with a Honda Civic and bike rack with three bikes....I pull in with an RV and pull out from inside two recumbent trikes. Then I shower and sip a beer after the ride and they get back inside the Honda all sweaty like I used to.... yhep I spend the bucks on fuel....but I go in comfort.

I have gathered my Pre-Paint photos.... and am positive that my paint ceiling solution is a winner in my case. I have enough of a task completed and drying in the bathroom to assure myself that I will be very satisfied with the results. I ended up using the Zinsser Latex based 1-2-3 Bullet Primer found in Lowes and I had it tinted to an off white color that was pleasing to my eye. The latex when gently applied seems to wrap itself around the thread of the carpet material and almost acting like a stain. I gently work it into the nap with the brush little spots at a time. The nasty carpet stain seems to get covered in one coat...but we will see as the section that I have finished dries. This is kind of exciting....it marks a fix for unsightly stained carpet ceiling in my RV to where I have a low cost adequate solution to my concern. Will this be for everyone?????...of course not...but for those who might have no desire to invest heavy into their rig..but still want it to have some appeal.... I think this will be a winner. Let me post all my photos and you can judge the outcome for yourself.

I am tackling the additional stains now. Bathroom came out so well that bedroom will follow. Glad I went down this road. The notes I will share about the discovery of how paint applies itself to carpet includes: Paint soaks into the carpet nap like is was a brush. The project begins by looking like a series of paint blotches on the carpeting. You might begin by makeing sure everything is taped off and covered well. Apply paint lightly with a dabbing motion .... dip and dab.....then with latex gloves on hands ...use hands to smear paint into a uniform coat. As you blend with your hands the wet areas of paint move outwards and the blotched areas get pushed out together until everything looks like one painted canvas.
I have several other areas that I will perform this painted ceiling technique upon. The color that my wife selected and the tape job we did really helped the outcome. All unsightly stains are covered. The ceiling looks nice....no dogs were painted in the making of this thread.
