This coach was only a few years old and still in great shape. This customer had several changes in mind to better suit her needs. Getting rid of all of the carpet was on top of her list. This coach already had tile from the bedroom door forward on the main floor, but had carpet in the bedroom and on the two slideouts in the front. These areas can be challenging to do with anything except carpet, so we recommended a laminate floor with a nice burled cherry finish. In the front of the coach there are two slides. The driver’s slide out is a flat floor slide with a sofa and dining area. The passenger side slide out is a raised floor slide that was mostly covered by a sofa. The bedroom floor and engine hatch were also carpeted. The passenger slide out where the small loveseat used to be was being fitted with a new custom built desk unit wtih a matching corian top, leaving only the center exposed. On the driver’s flat floor slide we replaced the hide a bed sofa with a small bookshelf type cabinet and two recliners for comfortable seating. To install laminate on the flat floor slide, first we lay a new plywood subfloor over the top of the original slide floor extending out to the same point the old bound edge of carpet was. The laminate is then installed and finished off with a matching rolled over stairnose trim piece. The end result does make a step up of about 3/4″ but still drops down flush with the trim piece laying right down on top of the tile. The bedroom floor and engine cover was also quite a job. The access hatch for the raised engine cover behind the bed has to be removable, yet still be finished off nicely. We also installed the laminate on the stair sides and around the pedals in front of the driver’s chair.
Next week we will cover the rest of this project!
