New flooring installation

We just purchased a 2004 Country Coach Inspire DP. The PO tore out the carpet and tile and installed MWF which looks good for the first year or two, then progressively gets worn out quickly.
We want to go back to tile & carpet; is there a listing for local, qualified installers? I'd be looking in the Colorado Springs/Denver area.

I'll be getting a VIN verification tomorrow at a local RV dealer, I'll inquire there as well.

Why not go to a good quality vinyl?

There are some great ones out there now that are warm and deaden sound just as good as carpet, yet very easy to keep clean.

We thought about it. We have the textured, wood-look vinyl flooring in our kitchen and it wears very well, is seamless so no worries about water, and is almost indistinguishable from real wood flooring. We just like the original look of the Country Coach floors. The only deviation we're looking to make is having a tile entryway instead of carpet.

I used commercial quality carpet tiles (approx 19" square) that I laid down using double-sided carpet tape. It's working out well, is easy to install and, if there's damage, the damaged tile can be replaced (buy enough for extras). We used peel and stick vinyl planks in the kitchen and bath areas.

I am considering using vinyl plank flooring by lifepeoof but it says only good for climate controlled environments and we store our camper most of the year. Reviews by campers say sometimes planks shift? Anyone have evidence either way. Much appreciated

That is good to hear. It seemed like a good product but the disclaimers made me nervous since we don't live in the RV. Appreciate the feedback!
