I like the fabric selection for the sofa, it's a definite upgrade. It's a good thing you have your lady's input for assistance in this endeavor!

For what it's worth, I use postimages.org to upload pictures. As far as I know it's a legitimate site, not sure if the FRF admin would have any issues.

I can see them now. As I thought, they are great. Very good looking work as usual. Can't help with the laying of floor. I have only done it in my house. As many cutouts you have, one piece may not be possible.

Thanks for the tip! I just joined postimages.

For years I used Photobucket, but then they held people to a $400. ransom.

I switched to Imgur. I still use it, but don't like it.

Yeah...I'll probably end up having 3 seams...

I don't think that it's worth trying to make it all in one piece, minus the bathroom. Is it??

...more to come...
I'm pretty ignorant on this subject, but if you google "seams in linoleum floor" and "linoleum transitions and thresholds," I think you'll get some ideas.

Good luck!

Thanks for the tip, rockfordroo. I'll do that.

I read the manufacturer's installation instructions. I'm just trying to minimize the seams.

I guess that if done correctly, the amount of seams won't matter much.

We'll see...

I have watched the installer put it down in my home a couple of times and he uses something that looks like super glue on the seams, it is clear and when finished you cannot find the seams or worry about them ever opening up. Maybe just ask at the local carpet shop? Good luck

I used vinyl plank pieced when I redid my floor. They stuck down really well and looked much nicer.

You can easily fix that flange with a $6.00 steel spanner flange.

Unless it is different than the ones I have worked on in the past, the flange screws in because tanks have to be replaced sometimes. Readily available at any rv dealer

I never heard of those before, so I just checked them out. Great concept.


I could make one of those in about 20 minutes.

Thanks for the heads up!

So....they screw in! That makes sense! And here I was trying to pry it up......

Hey Rich, nice work....coming along nicely. How about thin (5 mil) vinyl plank flooring? I used the type that have the stick together edges. Looks great & not thick enough to interfere with anything. I did 135 sq. ft. for around $250 from Home Depot. Mine is Allure vinyl plank. You won't need nearly as much. Each box covers around 45 sq ft. at around $35 a box. I then used 1/4 round trim that I found at Lowes that matched the cabinetry to finish the edges.

Aww...nuts....sideways pics!

Very nice floor! I was going to buy a type of plank flooring, but got scared off by being told that those floors have a lot of edges, etc., that could possibly lift due to the extreme temperature changes. I live in New England. It gets hot, and cold!

So, I decided to go with vinyl sheet flooring. But....I have heard that others have been successful with plank flooring in their campers.

Where do you mostly "reside"...in a warmer climate? How long ago did you install that floor?


BTW...that looks like a beautiful camper! Mine is like a slum compared to yours...

Rich

These had adhesive on back and never moved. Bought at Lowes. Easy to trim with razor knife. Very durable. Done on a 2000 mallard. About your era of camper.

So, it survived the PA winters, no problem?

Did the entire plank stick to the floor, or just the edges, like the Allure planks?

I'd really rather go with plank flooring. It looks way easier to deal with installing smaller pieces rather than a large sheet....

Here's a pic of the old sofa (again) and a shot of the re-upholstered sofa...







And here's that finished replacement trim piece...

That looks like some real progress. I didnít have any trouble seeing the pictures. I also agree that the backwards new material looks better. At this rate you might even get to camp early. Jay

The whole piece had adhesive. The pieces were about 3Ē wide. Yes it survive PA winters and summers fine. It also had that wood grain feel. It was all vinyl. Wife really loved it.
