Thanks Marc, congrats on yours too. Lookin' really nice. I think you and I have the same sink/faucet setup! I saw it on your latest video, which was great BTW.

continued.............I like hard floors in campers. Easy to sweep out, and super durable. The only problem is that stuff slides around while travelling, so I'll probably be throwing in a big roll of that sticky shelf liner stuff to keep stuff still. Anyway, I did laminate in an Airstream awhile back and loved it. I wasn't sure how it would go in the van, since the stuff likes to seperate and move when the temp or humidity changes. I tried pretty hard to 'lock' all of this in so it can't go anywhere.
Here's the rear table flange and rear section

working forward, had to make a template for the seat holes, and piece it together as I drilled and went. Not very quick and simple



aluminum threshold and front table flange went perfect, but laminate EATS saw blades, all saw blades...........cheap, high end, jig, chop saw, you name it......

Here's the table set up in the rear before I took it up to cut and install the flange

Here's the table dropped down, modeled by the young lady who will be sleeping there

Yes, reversed though. It just works better that way, and seatbelts removed, using the old bench seat belts that hang from above.

Thanks Jamie!

Looking good. I like the rear dinette/bed set up. I wish my rear center section was lighter because that would work well for me. What mattress are you planning on using?

I went to the foam place today and got 4 pcs of 3" foam, for the bottoms and backs. I wish I could get it upholstered quickly but for now it's gonna be in pillowcases.

Re: Out with the old, in with the new

Your really making me reconsider my flooring choice. How thick do you think your entire sandwich is? Nice Install!

1/2 foam, plus 1/2 ply, plus 1/4 laminate, so 1 1/4 total, you do have to shave some off the bottom of your plastic sidewalls to make everything look good, which is easy with a hack saw and some patience.
Oh, I have $40 in this floor total. That part is nice.

We're you able to use the stock seats with the floor being that thick?

Yep, just longer bolts. I think I have 2 1/2 or 3 now. I bought 2" ones before I did the floor and they weren't quite long enough. The ridges in the metal floor really throw you for a loop on stuff like that.

The post was supposed to say "stock seat bolts". I'm laughing at myself of course because what I was thinking and what I was typing weren't the same.
