Looks great... How did you waterproof it?? I have laminate too and I'm terrified about... Even the water off our shoes.

All new towels. We finally realized why Airstream uses darker colors.

You might laugh, but when we remodeled we spent money on Egyptian cotton white towels and white bedsheets and plush comforter. We had the idea to make the Airstream feel like a plush luxury hotel room.

After a year of full-timing with kids, our towels and sheets just looked gross. Even our light colored floor needs cleaned like every other day.

Truth is, camping is dirty and dirt comes inside and kids compound it.

Looks great PeterH-Airstreamer. Did you leave that prescribed 1/4" expansion gap? I am getting ready to do the same thing and trying to figure out the best way to do the gap or gap cover. I am not sure yet on the quarter round common cover.

It's a catch 22.
I already had purchase the real "Pergo", when I decided to make a test: I put a piece in water overnight and it swelled up badly. That is why I looked for a 100% waterproof laminate. I found NUCORE and I tested it as well and nothing happened overnight. It also claims it does not need to be acclimated prior to installation. They do recommend leaving a gap if you install it in a room. Trailers are just a few feet across. I just didn'tlike the weaker inter locking system of the NUCORE versus the PERGO
Long story short, I did not leave any gap and fastened the flooring all around the edges. Please do this at your own risk, I just didn't want to deal with a separating and moving boards.
Airstream installed the carpeting first and then installed all the furniture.
Try to remove as much as you can and it make your life a lot easier and you may not need any shoe molding in many places.
Check this contraption Airstream build to deal with their badly planned out piping system Covering it with carpet it easy, but making the Laminate look good, was a challenge

We put 3M non-slip tape on the back bumper (and bumper lid lip) of our 2015 Eddie Bauer bumper, because it could get slick there when stepping in and out of the hatch, and I never liked the metal-on-metal of the lid scraping the top of the bumper. We also picked up a set of the bumper caps now standard on the 2016s. Joe

We got a "little red" camp fire and 10# propane tank. Perfect for when we can't have a real fire!

Installed a 50A circuit in my garage. We store our Airstream in a storage facility but when it's home and we are packing / unpacking from a trip, running the air-conditioner is a dream!

Replaced the 26" Television in the living area of our 30' FC with a 32" Samsung and moved the 26" from the living area to the bedroom replacing the 19" that came from the factory.
