Great looking job !! Does the slide out ride on top of it? Is there any chance of the slide out scratching it?

The slide was riding on top but what I did I stapeld strips of rug underneath the slide so those pieces of rug slide overtop of the laminate.
I'am very pleased with this myself.

Now what I need to do yet, is rip out the nasty green carped out of the bedroom, and replace it with new rug, little more modern looking stuff.

Very nice job - looks great. You should suggest to Ty Pennington an RV Extreme Makover show

One kinda wonders why RV manufacturer still stick with carpet ???? when there are so many new floor material availabel nowadays.
