Floor

Frank I have a 29' 92 like yours and we replaced the flooring and we had the sofa redone by an upholstery shop. You can see pictures of it on my deal here or I have attached a video I did of it. It isn't hard really just time consuming. We took the bed frames out in rear and the sofa out. All that is pretty easy just screws - take pics so you can see how everything goes back if you wish but they only go back one way. The flooring was interesting as I had never done one. You can go on You Tube and find floor installation videos and they really help. We choose a floating floor and it really isn't hard - hallway was a little hard. We put tie down in bathroom. Sofa was in deep trouble and the guy had to do some frame work but as you can see it came out well - Good luck and if I can help let me know. Pat Taylor

Thank you. Carpet is halfway out so I've got to follow thru. Couch is worn out & it has to go or have it redone? I thought about a new sofa but guess it would be impossible to find one that fits, mine works OK, just worn out.

Flooring, Guess I'll just put down all new carpet, no expert at this stuff, keeping old to use as a pattern. Did you install new flooring yourself or did you hire a professional for carpet???

Thanks again.

Pat, great job on your 29 footer, looks great, lay out is close, my bathroom is different, bedroom looks the same & the couch layout looks the same. Soon plan to try & remove the couch. If time what tricks are there to removing it???? It looks identical to yours. Guess will have to old one redone since it works fine & I know it will fit.

Advise on removal of couch most important, guess it went thru the door some how or did it have to be disassembled ???

Thanks again fellow AS owner.

Pat, I got kinda lucky so no need for help on removing sofa. Found a local upholstery woman that knows AS's well, they own a AS Land Yacht, motor home. She is very close by & will help me take it out etc...... along with an older very good carpet man that can redo all the carpet.

Thanks again for your help.

Frank - sofa is easy to get out in pieces. Arms come off just lift up and the pieces holding them just unscrew. Bed on sofa is held on by a couple of brackets and it lifts off. Should take about an hour at most. If you put carpet in check floor for saggy or rotted spots. We took rear beds out as it just makes it easier to do and again they are quick to take out and put back in. It just makes it easier to work on. If I can help let me know and if you get towards Vegas on any trips let us know - we live about 45 miles west of Vegas. Send pics when your done.
