Yes, great improvements. Give us some details. What floor did you lay. Did you remove the kitchen cabinets prior to laying? Was the furnace moved? What is the dinette area like now?

Thanks

Kelvin

What did you get for your Trailer today?

Removed all the seating and cabinets, moved the heater forward about 2'. Removed all cabinets toilet etc.and layed Shaw forte flooring. No organic material in it and virtually no expansion problems. All cabinets attach to walls so I didn't have to worry about expansion - contraction anyway. I did leave a small space anywhere it butted up to solid walls and calked the small gap with flexible calk. We have a recliner loveseat across the back.Click image for larger version

New countertops ,LG HI-macs in Mesa granite color. I had the counter tops mounted to 1" plywood. Changed to a New faucet. Changed the RV queen to a regular size pillow top queen and Ready to go! The picture with the loveseat is with the previous laminate countertops.

Conversion was completed today and it only took two trips to the hardware store. Runs and smells great (compared to gas). Hardest part was drilling holes in a brand new generator. That took some quality time in the thinking chair. I like having the option to still use gas if I run out of propane. Click image for larger version

Almost finished. Three days of hard work, but our "Lumi" will soon have a new parking spot. 14x30 concrete parking pad 12' height. Center post wide enough for awning to open between them.

Hi, great choice and I'm with you when it comes to drilling holes in new items.

I hope the structure will have a lot of diagonal bracing so it will stay up.
