Ceramic Tile Replacements

I did a search without success so I thought I'd just ask, I know it's a long shot.


2002 Monaco Windsor
I have a couple tiles that are cracked, I do not want to replace all the ceramic tile. My tile are 6X6" shade of white ceramic, have a rough type texture.


Does anyone know of a source for the make/model of this type of tile.



I know we had ~4-6 spare tile but can't find them. I've looked in every nook and cranny in the RV and in the garage/house but we recently built a new house and no idea where they would be.

Did you try contacting REV? There's a Monaco customer care at 800-509-3417 and parts team at 800-435-7345. They could probably help. You can also submit a parts inquiry here: https://www.monacocoach.com/motorhome-parts


If the tiles are original, there's a good chance that they're no longer made. Have you thought about just replacing them with something close until you decide to upgrade or replace the floor?

Thanks, I used the REV parts website quite a bit. May try and call as a last resort.



I am not going to replace the tile, it would be way too much work for me, The tile was laid down before any of the wall partitions or cabinets were installed. It would be very difficult to remove and replace the tile in a situation like this. The tile was laid directly on top of the subfloor so it would be quite an effort to remove in the open areas and near impossible under the slide and cabinets. I know others have done it but for me it's about a cost/benefit, I see way too much sweat and not enough equity involved with that type of project.

I did just lay new vinyl plank flooring in the rest of the coach.

I did call the REV customer care line and actually got through to a rep. He indicated that the age of my coach they don't even have any information as to the tile make/mode or manufacturer. He said that what the advise people to do is try and find something locally that would closely match.

So back to square one.

Tiles change every year. Even in your house if you lay down tiles today within 2 years they will not be available. When we bought our Dynasty I wanted spare tiles. Monaco did not have any but Northwest had 2 boxes. I have them and luckily none of my tiles have cracked.

Jim,

Where are you located? If in the DFW area, I can probably point you to a handful of places to look.

I was dealing with a home we were trying to get sold for a poor widow, had to have a under slab plumbing repair done. It was 16" tiles, long out of production. After hitting Home Depot, Lowes, Floor & Decor, as well as several wholesale places around the Fort Worth area, I went to Builder's Surplus in Haltom City. They pointed me to a bunch of pallets out in the weather (it was August, so extremely hot. I dug around for a bit, ended up buying 2 different boxes of tile (I only needed 2 tiles), and the 2nd box I chose was pretty dang close. We sold the house and the widow is now able to move on with her life.

I'm in East TN


I may have to make a run to a couple salvage type places just to see.



Here's a picture of the ceramic with the new flooring I just installed.

My wife is thinking about pulling up our tile. It looks a lot like your tile.
2000 Monaco Dynasty

I don’t have any new tiles, but if she makes me do this job I should have a lot of 22 year old tiles… Some should come up whole. It will be a month or two before it might/will happen.

Good luck on your floor project. I did not want to go down that path. Here's a link to my floor project if haven't seen it, I'm almost done, had to order one more piece of step edging to finish. https://www.irv2.com/forums/f115/new...-564571-7.html



My suggestion would be to buy a good oscillating tool, the mastic that they used forms a strong bond to both the tile and the floor.

If by chance you do get some whole tile up PM me and maybe we can arrange shipping. I'd appreciate it.

I think you are optimistic. I had to replace 3 of my tiles and the adhesive they used was so good I literally had to break up the tiles with a chisel. There wasn’t any chance of them coming up in any small pieces, much less whole.

Replace broken tile

I have replaced several of my HR Endeavor tiles. I went to Home Depot, found 12 in. x 12 in. that matched the color, then cut them down to 6 in. x 6 in. I bought grout too match. Make sure to clean off the old stuff. Pretty easy to do.

I did took off 12 year old carpet( still do not understand Who and Why decided to install it in first place at factory ,,, cause carpet will deteriorate in few years regardless).
And installed ( glued down ) CORK floor . 9 years later looks and feels the same. Nice , silky , warm floor. Water resistant and mold resistant and feels and looks like forest.


If i going to do it again ( most likely will in next DP ) , then i will take off tile and do whole floor with cork.
Just beautiful.
