Well guess what, we are camping at the Des Moines KOA (actually in Adel-Desoto) and another Slider shows up across the street on a one-nighter. A 2004 Safari from AZ and they just replaced their carpet with wood plank linoleum. It looks great. We had a real nice visit about Sliders, a very nice couple.

We have a 2007 Classic with slide and we always put it out because we really like the roomy feel.

Well, old Silver is at the Mother Ship to get all new hickory flooring except for the bedroom; a new "high boy" toilet, and replacing the couch with 2 recliners. Not sure when it will all get done but I anticipate after the first of the year. Once it is completed, I will post some pictures. I had to get over to Illinois for a meeting so I didn't have a chance to do the factory tour, but hope to next trip. Also, the fellow next to me at the park had a 2007 with a slide; we had some pleasant conversation.

Pappy,

Good luck with the changes, hope all works per plan and better.

Any chance you can pick their brains a bit about slide adjustment pointers?

Airslide has a good thread about it but more info can't hurt.

The slides are a sought after on the used market. The owner of my local dealership talked to me at a local RV show. He said that most of the sliders he resells are gone with 24 hours. He's got folks on a waiting list!

Pappy, I would love to see pictures when the conversion is done. I did the highboy, ceramic toilet upgrade last year and both the missus and I agree we should have done it earlier. I will be starting the floor upgrade to the new vinyl planks from carpeting next month and am considering the loungers as well.

We just replaced the entire floor (including the bedroom) with a product called Moduleo. It was done by Western Interiors in Turner OR (just outside of Salem). They've been doing flooring for over 30 years - recently started doing RVs. They did a fantastic job. Moduleo is a "snap together" floating floor. They ONLY use Moduleo in RVs because "snaps" both ways so you don't get any gapping due to temperature extremes.

The flooring comes about a dozen options - some look like wood, some like stone. Given the already heavy "woody" interior of our classic, we chose a stone look.

There don't appear to be any issues with the slide. Apparently this stuff wears like iron. The only issue is the flooring is somewhat heavy. I figure it added about 175# to my trailer.

They did an amazing job. I'd use them again in a heart beat! Total cost was $2,800.

That's really nice looking, and I like the idea of not going with more wood look. Sure would like to know how they replace the flooring under the slide. Our original carpet is starting to show some age and wear.

Here are the finished recliners and new oak floor done by JC. I will pick up my unit in late April or may, so don't have a bunch of pictures. The fellows that did the work took these pictures to show the box over the battery connector and the custom cabinet. Really looking forward to getting the old silver bullet on the road.

I love the layout of the lounge SO Airstream. SO hard to get a line on one in good shape.
