Milwaukee Wisconsin RV Show:


Milwaukee Wisconsin RV Show was last weekend and missing from most 5th Wheel RVs was living area carpeting. The new vinyl floor coverings looked very nice. Slide-outs were carpeted although one slide-out did have heavy vinyl covering with a sturdy edging material applied.

After +1045 days of camping our carpeting is due for a change and the wood grain vinyl is now on DWs wish list of improvements; this is better than a new 5th Wheel.

We ordered ours w/o LR carpet and use an area rug, much easier to clean or replace, just have to roll it up before pulling in the slides. When you decide to replace your carpet, go with 100% vinyl plank floorings. But not the thin stuff (2-3mm) that HD sells as Allure or Trafficmaster, the tongue and groove are both so thin they are easily damaged. Lowes sells some called Smartcore that is 5 mm thick and better. I have installed both, imperfections in the floor will not 'telegraph' thru the thicker stuff. The clear advantage of 100% vinyl is no water damage, it also doesn't need as much expansion space, probably could get by with 1/8" in an RV.

We just had our flooring removed and installed vinyl wood flooring. What a difference in cleaning. Also makes the rooms look bigger

Did you mean flooring, or did you mean wall board?

Looks good tho.

The DW did not like carpet and the last time we had it cleaned. the cleaning co used some type of chemical that left it smelling moldy. We have not had carpet in our stick and bricks for the last 20 years. Easier to keep clean. dam phone the pics come out sideways
