Renovations to our 5th Wheel

It all started with broken leaf springs and spilled coffee.  First of all, who really needs beige carpet in a camper? My husband was having a bad day when he couldn’t understand why our trailer would not level. After many hours of work during our weekend camping trip, we ended up leaving our 5th wheel a day or two longer while waiting for replacement parts.  A large coffee stain ended up on the carpet sometime during the repair. I would never accuse my husband, or judge, or even point fingers, but…

With the leaf springs successfully installed everything was wonderful again…except for the carpet driving the wife crazier by the moment.  We decided to buy inexpensive peel and stick flooring from Amazon.com.  We chose 3 foot by 6 inch Tivoli II Vinyl Floor Planks in medium oak.  Seven 10-packs were sufficient enough to do the bathroom as well.  If they don’t hold up, who cares at $20.00 per box. The hardest part of the job was ripping out the old carpet.  My husband did the entire project by himself. I think he did a great job. I know I’m grateful he spilled coffee in the first place!

Once on the roll…he has taken care of other little things.  Here are some pics:
