Their are different (basic types) hardwood flooring. I think the floating might be the best application. I am going to put down some this winter.

I don't see why you could not just work around the toilet if your cuts are clean enough?? Of course in my case the bathroom is where I get the most sag. I think I might have had some water in there as well because my bathroom floor is really soft! Even where the toilet is mounted is soft. Anyone do this yet and have pictures?? I would love to see it. I have a TT not a 5th wheel and the carpet part of the large slide comes in over the linoleum which is the part I would most like to see. Thanks

if you put hardwood floors in your bathroom you have to bring up the toilet flange to the hight of the floor or you will have a bad leak under the toilet. its a major re plumbing job to lift the flange.

How was the fit against the carpet? Did you glue or float the floor?

Johnny,

First of all very nice work. It looks to me like you have the exact same camper I have and I would love to do what you did. Do you have any more detailed pictures? Also could you provide the description and details on the flooring you used? What size, material, etc? And how did you work around the toilet? Also what did you use for the thresholds where the wood meets the carpet? I am very interested in doing this and seeing it in the exact same floor plan I have makes me even more interested. Thanks again and again, nice job!

engineered 3/8 flooring. i dident do the bathroom you have to repipe the toilet flange and bring it up to the hight of the wood and they said it's not a good idea to put the flooring around wet areas. around the cabnets 1/4 round and the carpet i have to get tee molding and the tee molding tracking that is cut to go around the carpet. if you start your first row like i did witch is in front of the stove my best place to get a strait line. and it has to be 3/8'' thick so the side out wont drag on it and i dident use the felt under it because of concerns of the hight thing.just tell me what pics you want and ill post them if i have them. and thank you. 2007 forest river flagstaff 831bhss
