Floor Remodeling: Day 3 (New flooring arrives!)

By , December 8, 2010 2:52 pm

We continued to remove the remaining laminate. We decided we were doing to try to remove the laminate we had sawed off because it was underneath fixtures/walls and therefore difficult to get to. It just looks so much better when the floor goes under the fixtures/walls. The ones we can’t get to we will finish off with quarter rounds. We actually got most of the laminate from underneath the fixtures/walls out! After we removed the glued laminate pieces out from underneath the fixtures/walls, we jammed a loose piece underneath to maintain the weight/level.  Boy! That was a lot of painstaking work!

Let us also say that Newmar did not cut any corners when they built our rig. Things were both glued and screwed to keep them in place.


The new flooring arrived today. Here is the old beside the new. The new flooring has more red in it. We probably have another day or two of prep work before we can start installing the new floor.


So, we accomplished the following on Day3:

  • removed small section of existing laminate
  • removed most of the laminate under fixtures/walls
  • made two trips to the hardware store (not counting the trip to pickup new the floor)

For those who are curious, this is the ceiling underneath all our bays and our slides. It is heavy duty looking nylon material. It looks good too. It would just be a shame to cut them in order to get to the screws/bolts for the seat belts if we decided not to saw them off.
