If that floating floor stuff is the same as what we put in our home than I am disapointed with it. It might be different in the AS than in a regular home. When you move your furniture it will snag the flooring and stretch it. Now this was a sheet of floating flooring not the planks so maybe it's not the same. It sounds similar though.

good luck

Dave - hope that it goes well for you. Let us know; and pix too if you can.

As soon as the weather breaks here we are going to put down some of the stuff from Home Depot. I wanted something light and the wood tones are all too dark, so I think we will go with the faux tiles. They are nice and light in color.

Classic 25 new flooring project

OK, it's spring. Finally starting a project to remove the carpet from our 2004 Classic 25 and install Konecto flooring. Thanks to a lot of good help and suggestions we decided to use the Konecto Sierra Plank flooring in light oak color named Truckee (Part #11067).

Special thanks to RoadToaster (hope I can still say thanks when I'm done).

Here are the first pictures of disassembly. More as the project continues.

Just follow the various suggestions in this thread and you will not have a problem. I cut my carpet even with the front legs of the sofa leaving everything underneath untouched. With the drawer back in you have to bend down to see the carpet edge. Your pics looks like a good start to me.

Take your time and have fun.

Classic 25 new flooring project-Part 2

Most of the demolition now completed. We have removed the old carpet, hundreds of staples, and the padding. I was fortunate that a centerline was available on the sub-floor so we will use it to align the new flooring.

Still undecided about carrying the new flooring (Konnecto Sierra Plank) into the bath. The current floor is in good shape; it appears to be plywood with vinyl floor glued to it running under a large section of the bathroom module.

My only surprise so far is the 3/8th inch gap between the sub-floor and the cabinet bottoms. I believe I will plan to install quarter-round and base oak trim when needed. Will use caulk recommended by RoadToaster as necessary.

I also decided to remove the sofa, old carpet underneath, and installed some dark brown 24 inch carpet squares that will not be seen after the project is complete. I could not believe the number of pop rivet shanks and metal shavings INSIDE the electrical compartment and floor. Did a thorough cleaning and located all the fuses inside that box.

One more attempt to cut loose carpet threats from under the furniture I did not remove and vacuuming and we will be ready to begin installation of the flooring.

More later.........

Don

For those who have successfully put down the laminate flooring what kind of waste factor did you use when you ordered your flooring materials? I'm thinking of at least a 10% waste factor when I put this type of flooring down.

Classic 25 new flooring project-Part 3

The installation went well using the Konnecto flooring as you can see from the pictures below.

I started on the street-side of the trailer and moved to the center hallway, and then under the kitchen unit and the entryway. I ensured each strip remained parallel to the centerline marking on the subfloor.

I found that using the sheet plastic protectors between each strip worked very well to keep the over-edge glue from sticking to the next strip. I did pull one or two up and re-stick but was uncomfortable each time I did it.

All that remains is the installation of some quarter-round and trim pieces as needed.

Will keep all in the loop with the final installation and completion of the project as soon as my days off permit. This is a project anyone can do with some good help from here on the forum and a few basic tools.

I did find that 10% scrap overage was more than needed. In fact, my 25 ft. used only about 3 3/4 boxes. I believe RoadToaster used 5 boxes for his 28 ft.

Your install looks really nice! What kind of temperature did you have for your installation work?

The installation days were in the low 60's. I could not find any recommended temperature from Konnecto, I suspect too hot or too cold probably introduces their own problems. Hopefully, my installed flooring will hold up well. I really like the quality of the materials. I will say that the warmer the material, the easier it was to cut.

Floors

While I see most everyone on this thread is installing floors in trailers. I just installed Bamboo in my 280 Turbo deisel so I figured I would post some pics and thoughts on another flooring type.img057.jpgimg059.jpgimg060.jpgimg061.jpgimg063.jpg

I put carpet in the drivers area panel trim and the toliet area in the bathroom

When I first laid the bamboo flooring I put it long wise. What I found is that as the floor moves the pieces had a tendency to seperate slightly and cause gaps... So cursing I did it side to side.... There is more waste that way however the instalation in the rv went much smoother

The bamboo is from lowes and I used a premium underlayment a bit thicker and has almost a felt backing...


Before I laid any flooring I waterproofed and polyurathaned any exposed wood in the rv

I also replaced wood floor panels in the drivers area.....

Currently I am building a new false wall where the dinette used to be and building a new table as well ...
