Red face Pergo Flooring

In our 1970 Overlander, we pulled up the PO's brown carpeting. It looks like the original was a funky avacado green. We went with Carmel Bamboo Pergo flooring. We hope that it will be easy to maintain. The only thing left to do for the flooring is to add trim pieces and then it be complete. Let me know what you think.

I have posted a before, during and current photos

question? how thick is the bamboo on the pergo flooring. I have heard nightmares about it shrinking in dry climates. Thats why we didn't put it in ours.

Do you travel to the deserts of the west?

Well the name of the flooring was Bamboo Caramel. You can read about it on Pergo's site. The specs on it are, length 48in, width 5in, total thickness .375in. We live in Maine and right now it is so wet, I can only dream of a dry climate.

We have not traveled with the coach yet, but I would hope to visit the West in the future.

Pergo

We live in Arizona and have had Pergo in for two years with no problem. We had it installed in Oregon by a former Pergo manuf's rep. We have been in very cold and very hot weather with NO problems.

The flooring looks great. I am fixing to take on the challenge myself. The wife wants the carpet gone, even if it is bare plywood.
I would be interested in all of the comments about the trim. What kind are you using and how big is it. Pic's, Pic's Please
Thanks,
Al

L&R,
Looks great! I have my carpet out getting prepared for Pergo. A question for you, did you run your Pergo under the gaucho and screw back into the floor thru the Pergo after installation?

No, we left the gaucho in place. My husbands thought was, why add more weight to the coach when no one will ever see under there. I also think he didn't want to add more work to his "honey do list" We did run the pieces by the gaucho under the arms just a bit. There was a lot of cutting but it does look nice.

I will snap some photos of the trim and post more details.

I'm about to pull up the carpet on my 25 '76 Tradewind. I'm new at this and was exploring to see if pergo had been used before. Glad I checked in

We have Pergo currently and love it. Trading for a different trailer currently and it has carpet. The first thing we are doing is taking out the carpet and installing Pergo.

Mohawk

I'm going to do this too, once the summer is over. I got some of the same type flooring, though made by Mohawk instead of Pergo. Stuff has a 50 year warranty in a house so I hope it holds up. But anyway, I really think your floor looks nice.

I went with an oak natural, very light, in hopes of brightening up the coach. PO was a smoker and a P I G and put his cigs out on the carpet. For real. I tore the carpet out and the linoleum underneath (I have an Avion...they put linoleum on the floor and then the carpet over it....linoleum wraps around the edges and is stapled underneath to help protect the edges of the floor from water leaks....) even has a few places where his cig burnt clear though the carpet and marked the linoleum.

But anyway, the laminate floors sure look nice. I just wonder about their waterproofness. I was considering polyurethening the edges of mine before I install it. I know they're cool on stuff spilled on their face, but their edges have exposed MDF. If anything would damage it, water there would.

Again, nice looking floor!

see ya on the road,
