Then, remove carpets and replace with the Home Depot laminate flooring - at least in the front section.
Take a look at the Allure flooring at Home Depot. There have been a number of post around here raving about it and its ease of installing. They say it looks better than laminate. And it is recommended in wet areas.

It's going to be a long few weeks

Agreed. Maybe several bunches of long few weeks. Good Luck!
Once you finish you will only have the routine weekly maintenance. Remember, if you are not working on your RV then you are falling behind!!

I see that you're a web designer. Any chance that you'll be putting the restoration on the web anywhere? I'd love to see the before , after and in betweens!

I'm registered on irv2 but I just hate the excessive ads and poor layout so much I'm hardly ever on it - I understand the need for ads (although most of my websites are altruistic) but to have that many and to put them in the middle of the thread makes it virtually unusable.

Anyway, I heading up on the roof now to start the sealing

What ever type of laminate floor you use, get some test pieces and put them in a bucket of water and let them sit for a week or 2. Which ever one is still intact, that is what brand to buy. I am not personally familiar with any other brand other than Pergo which is NOT water proof. My neighbor spilled water on it. The water ran off the edge, which meant it got under the floor, swelled up and buckled. One time spill ruined the floor. Laminate floor must be waterproof or it doesn't belong in a motorhome.

My husband just replaced some of our plumbing and used shark fittings for the first time and says that they are great!
