Well DW got tired of the cheap carpet and wanted something a bit easier to keep clean at the beach.
We found some nice vinyl plank flooring at HD, it is 4mm thick and is a click lock install.
The part I worried the most about was real easy. That was working. back into the kitchen.

This is what we used.

All the old flooring ripped out and all staples removed, ready to start.

Some things just work out! Just needed to trim grove off next plank at cabinet.

Kitchen filled in nicely!

Now looking for a nice piece of grey carpet for the slide out.

[image]

Needed to bring in slide about 6" to get the last pieces in place.

[image]

Used oak screen door trim from HD.

I ran the oak trim thru a table saw and took just the radius off one edge to sit flat on the floor.

I assume it's a floating floor? How is it to remove one damaged piece and replace with a new one?

Depends on the location of the damaged piece! Near one side or the other somewhat easy, in the middle of the floor would need to take up about half.
The recommended install is to work from the tongue edge, but in the kitchen I needed to install five rows from the grove side, didn't seem any more difficult.

I assumed it was NOT easy that is why I highly recommend "LVT" flooring that LOOKS the same but is glued/laid in strips and can be easily replaced one pc at a time. Many a Dental Clinic I built had LVT flooring and is VERY durable. Damage a pc simply rip it up and glue down another.

Our DRV has LVT flooring "Luxury Vinyl Tile".

BTW not being critical as it does look nice!!!

Great job with the restoration!

We did the same thing in our rig and has been the best decision we ever made.

Safe Travels!
