Thanks again
I looked up a floorplan of the 270, and it looks like you only have one slide to worry about. The trim piece I'm referring to is a piece that is attached to the front lip of the slide where your couch is. Held on by 2 or 3 screws, but they'll be hard to find as the heads are buried in the carpet. If you can find them, remove them and the trim comes right off, giving you access to underneath the slide.

Thanks. Looked it up...was posted under the Georgetown forums in reply to a thread started on 5/31/2015.
If you decide to go with any of the vinyl plank type, wait till weather warms up...you do not want to install it in cold weather. Also, get a good, heavy duty box cutter type razor knife, like an original Stanley, and lay in a good supply of blades. A new blade edge will only give you 6-8 cuts before it needs to be replaced. You basically cut into the vinyl several times to score it, deeply, and it will snap apart along the score. I used a piece of 2" x 12" x 3 foot long piece of lumber as a base to cut it.
A good, metal straight edge, like a two foot metal level will be needed.
For our 283ts I needed 4 full boxes of the Allure. Oonly area I didn't cover was the raised carpeted area around the bed. Wife wanted carpet there.
I used the Allure with the glue type edge attachment. Be aware that once you lay one glue edge over the other, thats it...if you try to remove it you'll screw up both pieces...so, measure 3 times before cutting, and place them carefully.
It sounds harder than it really is. If you take your time it will turn out great.

Tile Floor Con't

I am including the link to my tile floor project, plus the tile surrounding my bath vanity. I left my carpet in the bedroom and under the couch, it was still in great shape. I just used a carpet strip as a transition. My main reason for tile was the cheesy aluminum strips in all the corners of the floor in the bathroom. With tile as you can seen in my pics, I was able to make it look like a high dollar Class A! Not to mention it is now basically waterproof. I understand tile work is not for everyone, but I too am just a home handyman like many of you. For sure you will need access to a tile saw. Either rent one or get a cheap one from Harbor Freight. My total cost to tile the floor was about $150.

After much discussion we decided to use sheet vinyl. I have posted pictures in an album of the process and the result. We are very pleased and can't wait for Canadian spring!
