We finally gave up and bought carpet tiles. This is not what I really wanted to do, but they were on sale at Builder's Surplus for about $1. a sq ft and I was tired of debating the issue (and the costs) and so we bought them.
I can always change these later, my main goal is to ACTUALLY GET ON THE ROAD!!!
I think they all look great. I need to buy another airstream I think I love that black and white tile floor. It reminds me of an old street rod type diner from the 60s. I also love the wood floors and the tile. I hope people keep posting pictures.
hi- post a pic of the carpet tiles! I went with cherry pergo flooring, a knotty-pine table top, and alder-maple kitchen cabinets. (I like all different kinds of wood...) New gaucho fabric from Jo-anns, as well as curtain fabric. If I'd started out with a gutted 50's or 60's model, instead of a trashed '72, I probably would have used a retro theme. Love that red/white dinette in an earlier post! -tim
White birch / maple interior. Marmleum floors, vintage barkcloth curtains and updated solid gray upholstry. All new custom blended zolatone (50 % Silver Grey / 50% Desert Camo), sleeps 6 with the solid birch bunks.
Being an antique dealer by trade I have to love the retro themes.
Juel - I really like the "juel" - tones that you used. They are so rich looking.
marvin and Annie - I will have to go check that flooring at Lowe's...
Has anyone used cork? And if so, where did you get yours?
We have installed a Jelinek cork in 12"X 12" X 1/4" urethane finished tiles
which we have glued down with waterborne glue. Cost about $4.00 per tile. To be truthful we love the looks and there is no better feeling under your bare feet. Aside of the fact we had an accidental flood from bad pex connectors, floor survived without a single issue. After this I would not install anything else in my AS. Thanks, "Boatdoc"
Cork was my first choice, but also too expensive for us right now. We put the most money into serious foundation items: new axles, water heater, water pump, new stove, ect ect. I figured the more decorative items like flooring could be easily replaced in a couple of years when finances dictate.
As I mentioned before, we found carpet tiles ($1.15 sq yd) and put them down using just 1/4" staples so they easily come back up when we are ready to change.
