New carpeting and vinyl plank flooring

After reading for months about vinyl replacement flooring we took the plunge with a HD traffic master product. $200 in materials and $800 to install both carpet and vinyl floor. Need to place quarter round where needed. Very pleased when all said and done.

Install and material look great! Why would Airstream want to put carpet in an RV??? Throw rugs are much easier to manage.

I assume you decided to leave the carpeting on the engine cover and in the bedroom?

We left the carpet on the engine cover and on both sides of the bed. We extended the cork floor covering to the end of the bed, straight across to the walls. When I winterized once, I spilled some antifreeze solution at the foot of the bed and soiled the carpet. Was hardly noticeable, but while replacing flooring, we did that small area.

Kept the carpeting in the front of the MoHo and replaced the carpeting in the bedroom. Good idea to replace the carpeting at the foot of the bed with the plant flooring. Can still do if the time comes since we have extra flooring left over.

Good job.

Same here on the front carpeting. Re-carpeting the front seems like a lot of cutting and stapling. Maybe a project for next year. Right now I'm getting her ready for a trip to Road Atlanta for the Petit Le Mans.

JMS, the new flooring looks fantastic.

We replaced everything (except the bath rm.) with carpeting 2 years ago & the installer commented on the front area taking as long as the rest of the coach. He removed the captain's chairs & dog house cover, but, still a lot of tricky work.

The front carpeting is in really good shape. There is good plastic liner at the drivers's compartment; the passenger feet area has a small rug and we have a small rug below the doghouse that we step on to get to the seats. So unless we have a major coffee spill, the carpeting stays!

Very nice. We have ordered planks for our floor too. We like your flat bathroom floor - we have an extra bump up behind the toilet for furnace and ?? - we haven't taken that apart yet to see if we can eliminate it.
Nice looking coach!

Is your cork flooring glue down tiles or click flooring? I liked the look of the cork click flooring but was wondering how it would be in the bathroom/shower area, and if the wider planks would be harder to install than what we ended up ordering which is something like allure flooring with the individual planks. We're allowed to change our minds as what we ordered was actually overstock in one of their other locations.

I agree, the flooring looks great.

I'm going to take up the challenge of new carpet in the front in the fall. Any idea how he removed the captain chairs? I would think that once you removed the captain's chairs and old carpet it would be fairly easy to put the carpet down. The dog house is another challenge all on its own because of the different levels and sloping floor. But it is easy to remove and then do the work on a workbench. I assume that under the existing carpet there is a plywood floor. Might be just better to remove the chairs, all the carpet and underlay and then have a carpet guy install. Any insight that anyone can share would be appreciated. Thank you.

The captains chairs are on with 4 bolts - just undo the bolts and lift off the chairs.

That will be the easy part......

Woodytwo, I watched them remove the captain's chairs & was surprised at how easy a job that was. The chairs are bolted to a base plate…so, he removed the nuts & unplugged the electrical connector. The electrical connector is a click together type plug. (sorry, I don't know the correct term) When the hardware was off & the electric unhooked, the chairs were lifted off the base. Seemed easy for 2 guys.
Re: the dog house. The pro did exactly what you are thinking. He put it on our workbench & worked on it there. The dog house cover is only glued…no staples or tack strips. I think he used a rubber cement type glue, but I'm not positive about that. The slope of the d.h. didn't make it difficult….its the corners. Briefly, he glued a piece of carpet lager than the cover & clipped the corners to fit. (if you know a sewer they can explain how to remove triangles of material to make a nice, flat seam on a curve.) He let it dry over night, then trimmed the bottom edge of the d.h. cover. Those corners are the only area that I've had to "work on"….I've had to glue each seam, again. Our choice in carpet material, probably, made covering the d.h. a more difficult install. We went with a tight, flat, continuous loop berber. (the hardest type to hide seams…the easiest type to unravel)
Good luck, woodytwo.
