Default New floor in 2000 Yellowstone XL

Picked this up 2 years ago from Dad for $9k, still had new sticker on certain parts of the interior, that's how good the condition was, always garaged. The carpet was pretty trashed after 5 months living in this full time on the Texas Gulf this past winter. Preparing it for our next Texas adventure this winter when not at our home on Flathead Lake MT.

I upgraded the flooring and repainted the interior. Still waiting on new shades (backorder)

1 day for tear out, and it, took 2 days for 170 sq feet, about 4 hours per day as I'm 60 and the body doesnt cooperate with my young mind.

It is SmartCore vinyl plank, lock in place, foam backed, from Lowes. Free floating except on the edge of the slide (liquid nails) and around the door area. Cut with a razor knife and break.

3/4 " flexible molding (Amazon)

I used Kilz paint on the wall paper followed up by 2 coats of off white interior paint.

I'll do the bedroom either this fall or next year.

Default Encouraging photos

Thanks...this is the encouragement we need to tackle getting rid of the old blue carpet in our Yellowstone. We have been debating all summer about full floating floor or glue down vinyl planks like used in many home bathroom remodel projects. Have been worried about the slideout that makes it much more difficult than a home project.
