For those that want to leave tile and want to add wood up to it, there is a product called carpet shims. The shim is a board 4 foot long by 12 inches wide. It is tapered. They come in 1/2, 3/8, 14, 1/8 and they slope down to zero height. These are made either of particle board or if you have lotsa cash, rubber.
Beats the heck out of adding plywood throughout. NOT available in box stores, that I know of.

$200 is a great price, someone else (either on IRV2 or Winnieowners) posted a $400 independent installer price which is also worth not doing it yourself.

And, good point about the weight, carpet is significantly lighter than pretty much any kind of plank flooring, something to keep in mind.

I mean the collos of the underflooring wood. It looked dark like there had been moisture before so I replaced a few feets and then installed vinyl planks on entire coach exept cockpit for noise and temperature reasons. Came out exelent so good that I received offers I could not resist.

Large format tiles are fine in a large room. They are a PIA to put in a coach and down the hall. I will never install them, ever, again.

I agree, luxury vinyl (plank or peel and stick) i6" to 8" x 48" size is easy to install. The narrow width minimizes cutting width-wise while the long length makes things go relatively fast. The same goes for laminate and engineered wood.

I did use large format (19" x 19") commercial quality carpet tiles, which weren't too difficult to fit and much easier than sheet carpet. I squared off the angles where the carpet and tiles met to make things easier to fit and trim.

LVT Planks

I'm not a full-timer. My Class A is stored most of the winter in NJ. How does LVT hold up in a non-climate controlled situation like mine.
