We have a 2003 HR Scepter. It has wood(laminate)flooring in the kitchen/bath area, and carpet front and rear of the wood. I would like to take up the front carpet and replace with wood. I am going to try HR to get the same laminate wood. We are in the nature coast area of central Florida, anybody have any work like this done in this area. I have already talked to Creative Coach and Classic Coachworks, down toward Lakeland. Looking for more choises.
Also going to take out the sleeper sofa, put in a Euro chair, and some sort of desk/table.
And last , but not least, replace both tvs with LCD, or flat screens.

Any input would help, thanks, the Muffin Man.

All good ideas MM. Do a search on the forum for floor replacement and you will find tons of info on this subject, as many folks have wanted to do just what you are considering.

And BTW, welcome to the site!

Muffin Man,
If you have slide outs I provide a heads up before you make the move to wood. I wanted to do the wood floor. Over time, I had two companies, who did this work, inspect the coach. Neither would install wood flooring in my coach. Both said the rollers installed by the manufacturer were for carpet. If wood was installed they would make indentations in the wood flooring. There are different slide rollers for different flooring materials. I do not know if this is true for HR, but it is true for Newmar.

Muffin Man,

I have no additional suggestions. I did, however, have Classic Coachworks replace our front carpet with a high quality vinyl like tile. They also replaced my slide carpet with new carpet that matched the new carpet in the bedroom.

They did a good job until you look closely: They smeared the lower bedroom walls with clear glue as they laid down the carpet in there. It started to attract dirt and dog fur and we still can't get rid of it; A couple of tiles by the sidewalls are not cemented down properly and float up; and finally, they were very proud of the oak trim they milled and installed between their tile work and my wood galley/dining floor. Unfortunately, the trim cracked after a couple of months.

Matt B,

That is a great looking floor installation. Is it wood or laminate and how is it secured to the subfloor?

Engineered laminate and it's nailed down using a brad nailer. My thought process is either nail it down or glue it down so it's integral to the subfloor and flexes with the coach. My thinking is that a floating floor with glue joints between the planks would flex the joints and eventually pop them apart. FWIW

I did my own replacement with vinyl planks. You need to know if your unit is like mine. Your wood floor in the kitchen is glued to a subfloor, and the subfloor is screwed to the real floor.
