laminate flooring??

We just got our 03 flagstaff last week, but I realy hate the green carpets, I'm thinking of ripping that out and replace it with laminate flooring, I would do the slide at the same time.
Has any one else done this? Does the slide still slide in properly without scratching up the new flooring?

Menno.

I did our 94 Companion with a laminate that had a foam underlay attached to the flooring. The one problem that I had is that I cut it too tight and it squeaked against the cabinetry, even with a silicone bead against it to prevent water and etc from getting underneath.

Super easy to clean up, and looked fantastic. We didnt have a slide so not sure how that would work out.

How much flooring did you purchase and use? I'm trying to get a rough idea for my 27' that doesn't have any slides. Thanks.

The best way to do it would be to figure it out in smaller areas, like the area under your table would be 2 foot by 4 foot which would be 8 sq feet. Then move on and then when you have your sq footage add a box just to be safe. Maybe buy from a place like Home Depot or Costco where if you have extra it isnt a problem to return it. Be careful about buying the last few boxes that a store has in stock as if you need more you may be out of luck.

Good luck.

I would suggest checking out vinyl plank "laminate" flooring. I just installed some in our TT. I'm thrilled with the product and results. It's only about 1/8" thick so it doesn't interfere much with door sills, cabinet doors, etc. It clicks together like regular laminate and cuts easily using a chop saw and table saw. Super easy to install overall.

The biggest problem I had is that trailers aren't really built that well and not much is straight, plumb, square and level. I had to scribe a lot of the perimeter pieces to maintain an even 1/8" gap around.

The brand we used is called Aquaproof and it's fairly new on the market so I don't know how easy it is to find. The best thing is that it is 100% waterproof so you don't have to worry about wet dogs and spills. For those who might consider the vynil stuff, check out reviews on the 'net. I read a lot of negative comments about the Home Depot product.

Here's a few before and after pix of the installation I just finished. The 60/70s kitchen reno look is gone and now it looks and feels like a high end unit. Not sure why so many manufacturers go with the same-ish looking lino pattern, especially when there are so many choices in sheet flooring that include laminate-looking ones.

I neglected to mention previously that the vinyl laminate I used is an interlocking type and not the type that gets glued down/together. I can't praise the product we bought enough and I would not hestitate to use it again.
