I removed the carpet from our old 5th wheel and replaced it with the
laminate flooring that snaps together. It looked really awesome once it
was done. I want to do this in the old 95 Dolphin, but I have some
First, what do people do about the doghouse? Leave it carpeted? Change
the color to something a little more... modern? (Ugh, pink? Really?)
The steps would also be a tough point of contention, but I think those
could be beaten, even though they have to lift to expose the coach batteries.
So mostly, I'm just curious as to what others have done, if anything,
about the doghouse.
My previous MH was a 1995 HR Endeavor. I removed the carpet from the rear edge of the doghouse (I went from the rear edge over to the seat base and then to the outside wall). I dyed the carpet on the doghouse and carpet in front of the seats with Rit Dye. (Use a color darker than the color now there). I then layed wood parquet flooring from there back to the bath. I also dyed the carpet in the bedroom. Looked great when finished.
I have a class a and redid the floor from the front to just before we go into the bedroom. I put indoor outdoor carpeting from just behind the front seats to the firewall. From there back I put allure flooring. On the sides of the steps I also put the allure and used contact glue . Where we step I cut the carpeting to fit the steps and used Velcro to keep it down, this way I can still lift the indoor steps up. On my dog house I striped the carpet and also put the a new carpet. I used contact glue to hold it down. I used the old carpet as a sample.
I have an '87 Gulf Stream 34ft. I pulled carpet ran the laminate all
the way to fron passenger seat, So far I'v not tackled the dog house,
but have enough left to finish. The stairs and stair well I did in
lam as well. Glued the lam to sides of stair wells, then to top of
stair tread and to the riser. Used L shaped oak trim from Depot to trime the front edges, the bougt little drawer handles in gold color and attatched one to each side of tread so I can lift then to access
