So we went back to the Armstrong tile and finally settled on one only to find out that our chosen color was no longer available. Sigh.

Now we are back deciding between the tile and the Konecto.
Armstrong has been down a year and no signs of a problem. Besides it was so much fun putting it down with my granddaughters help I would do it again. See for yourself.

More Prep work. Still pulling staples, screws and fixing the holes. Trial fit of the new recliners went so well last night we ended up cooking supper and watching TV in the driveway

Just a suggestion for those of your installing the Konnecto or Traffic Master. The instructions said to use a floor roller after installation. Naturally I figured that wasn't necessary since this was such a small space and did such a good install . I'm pretty sure that is why I have the expansion previously described. It is very small and does not detract from the looks but thought some of you might want to know.

Just finished the floor this evening...

I just finished putting in Traffic Master Allure (sent Liz into the house while I worked, not enough space in a 20 footer for two when doing this job). Here's a shot of the main part of the trailer. I used the same stuff in the bathroom, but 90 degrees out of phase.

You mean stepping on it doesn't do the same thing? I walked on it really well and of course our install was very good as well.

Bob> Looks nice!

Greg,

Which specific Sierra flooring option did you use? They have so many that are similar (14 total in that collection). I am looking for something that complements the wood in the cabinets and I like the look in your pictures.

Would love to consider their tiles, but they will not be available until after the first of the year and I have already started tearing out carpet...

Thanks,
Ralph

Color match was the hardest part of the job. Before we made our selection we had a pile of some 20 samples. Rather than cut around the cabinets and have to install 1/4 round at the edges I removed everthing except the kitchen cabinet, that a clean straight edge to set the 1/4 round against. Any point that required a cabinet to be screwed down I drilled a 1 in. hole through the flooring and set the screw down through the hole. This will meet any "Floating" requirements and the screws were not set overly thight to the floor.

Progress

I finally got some time to start the reconstruction phase. For a while it looked like we might be going to the Can Opener with real wood floors- Plywood!
Photo 1 - forward section, including the downsized univolt cover
Photo 2 - Galley looking aft
Photo 3 - here's the stuff from Home Depot
Photo 4 - Here's how the stuff is made. 2 pieces slapped stickey side to stickey side with an offset. I cut it with tin snips for the short runs and a bandsaw for the long rips.

So far about 5 hours of actual placing the flooring.

Tips? yeah- I started at the longest wall, on my unit it is the curbside lounge area. Plan on some dry fitting once you start working from one area to the next. You can dry fit by placing the paper over the adhesive between the two pieces. Snap a centerline parallel to the first couple of rows so you can measure over and keep everything straight. This is really important since there are several places where two seperate areas have to match up as progress is made toward the centerline of the trailer.

I expect to make more progress today as 'the family' comes over for Thanksgiving lunch, I'm excaping

Good job HiHo, looks very nice. We can compare installs at the Can Opener.

Done!

2 more hours and it's complete and QC (Mrs. HiHoRv) says it's passed with flying colors. My right ring finger is wiped out from using tin snips. Now for a good cleaning (where is that thread on getting the stickey feeling off of the walls?) and install the new recliners. Then a small table, some corner round, a cabinet for the microwave and dehumidifyer, redesign the bed...

Aw heck, it's usable so lets go camping!
