Let the flooring begin! There have been a lot of steps so far in renovating my “New-2-Me-RVJedeye Mobile,” Bed, cabinets, hinges/hardware… all big projects, leading up the biggest of them all…The flooring.Without a doubt this is the project in this whole big bad renovation that I’ve been both excited for and terrified of. I’ve watched so many folks do really good jobs, putting in their floors and they’ve all made it look relatively easy.I knew right away when I got my rig, renovations would be coming and yes that meant the floor, but I wasn’t sure if I’d be ready. Well ready or not, it’s on! lol
Here’s a look at the overall budget for this week. In each episode I’m providing a detailed look of what I spent in the episode and the overall cost for everything. Things are starting to pick up with the budget. This week a couple of items to help with the floor and soon… there will be more… lot’s more when it comes to adding to the budget.

What a project. Thank you for sharing it because replacing the flooring is something we want to do also.
It’s been a chore but so worth it!😁

Now it is your vehicle completely by the make over. Could start a new series “Flip This Van by RVJedeye”. HG TV might go for it, lol.
I love the way you think!😁

I just started to renovate a 1990 Allgro I bought that suffered some water damage from a leaking vent and front roof. The leak was repaired but rather unsightly. So far my husband ripped out the worst shower wall and then I will tile the shower. I started painting the cabinets after cleaning out all the previous owners stuff- they just walked away. My background is in Interior decorating – mostly residential , specializing in flooring for 25 yrs. I can answer any questions you may have on pros and cons and PROPER installation. You may want to leave your vinyl if u choose laminate.
BTW- we have been full timing going on 4yrs so my project RV is a bigger challenge due to work area limitations in the RV park. Luckily my husband is park manager. So – I own 2 RV’s.!!
Wow! Thanks for the info and notes. I may reach out to you about the reno and about RV park ownership, I have some interest in that as well😊
