Putting Floors in the old RV

July 13, 2015

So I (Amber) decided to put in the floors since Chris was working hard on stuff nobody sees or cares about but is totally necessary and is taken for granted. You know like water pipes, flushing toilet, water tanks, wheel bearings, electrical panels, lighting etc…. Let me tell you that laying Tivoli II Peel ‘N’ Stick Vinyl Planks (in Rustic Oak) in a vintage trailer that is not perfectly straight made this quite the task and about 17 hours over 10 days. Below is a photo journal of my first time, floor installing journey. I finished for it’s World Premier July 4th, 2015 depute. Enjoy!

Short Video of the original floors.

Started by cutting lose and peeling old, “flaking” linoleum out.

I used a utility knife, scissors, newspaper, straight edge, marker, sweat….

I drew this on the floor before I covered it with the new floor.

To cut around the toilet hole (haha), and all the tables and cabinets rivets and divots, I read to use a template out of newspaper. It totally worked but takes forever to do.

Progress of the floors….

And the final…

One final thing… to fill the gaps I used this wood filler. Turned out great!
