The large picture shows the finished product. The upper right photo shows the carpet around the bed. The middle and bottom right photo shows the great look of hardwood in the kitchen and stairs. The hardwood goes into the living area too. (pic missing)
May 2013 – Last year I ripped up 2/3rd of the motor-home’s 1980’s rose colored carpet. Even thou the coach doesn’t have allot of mileage on it, this carpeting was matted down and just collected a ton of dirt throughout the years. With the assistance from my dad we replaced this with laminate hardwood flooring and new carpet/padding for the back half of the coach. WHAT A DIFFERENCE!
As you can imagine, the interior needed an updating from the 80’s, so what better time to do a complete re-color design from the ugly camper style that are still in campers today. Wallpaper borders are so out of style, I can’t tell you LOUD enough and the the ugly interior colors are putride. I’ll go out on a limb and say that if you failed interior design in college you’ll probably end up working for a camper manufacture. I have no idea on the low to medium priced RV’s where they come up with color/design patterns, but to me, its horrible!
Anyways, the hardwood flooring looks outstanding and it almost maintenance free. In addition to the flooring, Tami and I ended up repainting all the walls/ceilings and I re-finished all the cabinets in the whole rig.
The only rose colored carpet left is in the drivers cabin and that won’t be there for long. 🙂
