That’s great info, Bob. I had wondered about that. It’s high on my list of flooring. I bet it looks great, too. You got pics? 🙂May 6, 2014 at 9:47 am #2635Bob,Marie & KhaleesiParticipant

Wow, cracked lino on that new of rig, I guess it was from extreme cold?May 6, 2014 at 10:34 am #2640Bob,Marie & KhaleesiParticipant
Yup…I heard of a few people who had the same problem in town…local RV dealer is doing some of the repairs…mine is small so I am doing it myself 🙂May 6, 2014 at 1:26 pm #2641
Hi Bob,I’ve herd vinal planks are good and flexable so don’t crack like there older cousin. I priced some at Home Depot for around $1.97 a Sq. foot. Read some RVers going this route because of the stuff is a floating floor. There is a couple Utube RV installs out there and looks appealing.
Happy Trails!!!May 6, 2014 at 5:41 pm #2651
RE: the weight issue. My thinking is…if I’m replacing carpet and possibly a pad…I’m betting that weights more than the new flooring. That’s my thinking…and I’m sticking to it. 🙂May 6, 2014 at 7:31 pm #2653
Norma,Somthing to chew on carpet+padding+dirt+sand+moisture+?=alot more whight than vinal planks or parka flooring in the long run.May 6, 2014 at 9:10 pm #2661

I hope to purchase a Honda eu 3000 for boondocking. Possibly a small toad, pickup with a cap for storage, or small car want to tow 4 wheel down or possibly cargo trailer. Would like to take kayaks on our trips. I have a Lance 1191 truck camper,so storage is tuff . When we go across country these are some of my ideas, to make it more comfortable.May 12, 2014 at 8:06 am #2883May 12, 2014 at 8:59 am #2887JamesParticipant
Jim Lee commented on led lights. Do you have to do anything to the coach or do you just replace the bulb. Also will the bulbs work on 12 volt or 110?May 12, 2014 at 9:02 am #2888JamesParticipant
Check your local military surplus shops for a folding shovel. They may one at a good price. If you like also I have one buried in my shed I can dig out and give to you if your ever passing threw, I don’t use itMay 12, 2014 at 9:13 am #2889
Great idea, James…hadn’t thought of surplus store. I’ll check it out! And you never know when I MIGHT pass right by you! lol!!May 12, 2014 at 9:25 am #2890RayKeymaster
Hey James, I just finished updating my bulbs on the RV. It was very easy, just a matter of replacing them. Some of the cheaper ones you get from China take a little more fiddling. I ordered a couple and they were super cheap off Ebay but they had 3m stick-on backing and needed adapters and came with no built in regulation, you can always be DIY and save money modding the fixture to make them work properly, but to me its worth just getting some quality LEDS to start with if you’re not really into electrical stuff.
Here is my review of the ones I got – http://www.loveyourrv.com/install-review-starlights-led-lamps-rv/
To be honest, they gave me the lamps for free, (perk of having a popular blog. 🙂 ) but I was allowed to write what ever I wanted and tried to be as honest as possible in the review.May 12, 2014 at 11:11 am #2898Bob and NancyMember
Our wish List:
1. New Tires – not a wish, more of a must have. Getting them before we go to
Upper State NY in Aug.
2. New TV
3. Laptop Computer
5. RV GPS
6. Stove Top cover
7. Sink cover
8. Dog Crate that will fit between the cab chairs
9. Booster antenna for WiFi
10. Bike and Scooter Rack(s)
I’m sure we will think of more before we go fulltime !
