Putting Tile in Bedroom

My wife is wanting to change out the original carpet (not very good quality) in our 2012 Expedition with tile. Does anyone know of a person/outfit that has a good reputation for doing that kind of work? (preferably in the upper midwest..... but can travel of course )

Thanks!

Ernie Ekberg is our resident flooring expert, but I don't know where he is located. Maybe he will jump in!

As Joe said, Ernie is the resident flooring guru. He is located in Weatherford, Texas which is just west of Fort Worth.

I question using tile. Besides the weight addition it will be very cold in the winter. Vinyl would be a better solution if you don't want carpet.

I re-carpeted my bedroom with 2 remnants for less than $25.00. Surely beats tile.

We used a premium vinyl tile in 12" squares laid in a diamond pattern throughout the coach! We love it!
Look at my post #75

I wouldn't want tile in the bedroom unless it was heated!

Thanks!
Good idea as carpet just plain sucks that why the newer decent MH have it from the factory(tile)
I went with Vinyl planking and works very well.its very labour intensive to do as I had to reskin the floor and the engine cover and sides so I had nice smooth level surface to glue down the 1/8X 6X36 planks. looks great and easy to mop clean and slides clear it so no marks

Easier to clean, and right now I have plenty of weight buffer on all axels - so weight is not an issue. Vinyl is an interesting thought, but the rest of the coach has tile, so... for my wife the ease of cleaning is much more important than temperature (cats = hair balls and other potential interesting messes .... &#128553

Hi Ernie! Thank you for chiming in here. People say you are THE expert to talk about this... the mystery to me on this is how to deal with the slide outs . To replace the flooring, do the slide outs need to be taken out... or is it even possible to do the floor work with them still mounted? (I have seen what it takes to remove them .. not impossible, but definitely takes some specialized equipment...
