corian counter top

Rod,

can you show some photos of the corian over the stove part lifted so that we can see the mechanics? My husband and I just purchased on 1/1/05 a 2001 19' bambi and I'm in the process of making new dinette covers. I would like to replace the rug and counters as well. Can you tell me how difficult it was to put down the flooring also?

It will take a day or two

I'll be happy to, but it will probably be Monday before I can get the pictures posted. You know the routine; charge the batteries of the digital camera, take the pictures, and post them on the web.

The floor replacement was not especially hard but it did take some time.
I started on a Sunday morning one weekend and finished the job working the next Saturday and Sunday morning.

The first step was to remove the dinette. Next I removed the carpet and pad, I cut the carpet, leaving it under the water tank, stove and sink, and under the refrigerator. The egde of the hard floor is under the dinette when it is replaced so that the carpet edge doesn't show. The other edges were covered by 1/4 round I installed around the refrigerator and closet-stove-sink area. The other areas the edge was finished by using matching colored caulking compound. (these areas don't show very much since they are under the dinette).

The part that took the most time was cutting out the back of 3/4" 1/4 round so that it would fit smoothly against the existing rounded corners and trim.

The installation of the floor was very straight forward as it is a floating floor on a foam pad and the pieces of flooring snap together.

I will take more pictures of the counter tops this weekend and post them on Monday. We have used the trailer several times since we had the counters redone and it really makes a huge difference. It makes the kitchen seem atleast 4x larger. Everything is easier,food preparation(pre cook) and washing dishes, and it looks better closed. We are really happy with the new counter top. I really believe that AS should consider offering this a an upgrade option.

We enjoy forest service, park service, and state park campgrounds the most - no hookups. So we prefer storage space over a microwave.

floors

Rod,

I take it you are still able to open bottom drawers. Did you put caulking there also? What about the vinyl tiles in front of the bed? Did you remove those too?

What did the shipping cost? It seems like that would be horrible. Your AS looks great.

No shipping

No shipping the counter guy built it in place.
I just gave him the key to the storage barn and wrote a check when he was done.

Corian is great, but it will melt. I've actually seen a guy make canisters out of it by rolling it around a cylinder and letting it cool, then inserting a bottom and gluing the bottom and side seam together. Leaving a crock pot on a countertop all day might not be all that pretty!.

Your flush mount stove is drool worthy, though!
