2004 158" Vista Cruiser
Hey Mikolia69, Thinking you are not seeing my questions, but posting another just in case,...did you cut the length of your planks to just go flush up to your cabinets,....or were you able to cut them longer and then flex or slide them under your cabinets?I finally did it. It took 5-7 hours to take out the carpet and prep the floor/edges and about 4-5 hours to do cutting and laying of the floor. I absolutely love it and it feels like a major upgrade.
I spent about $90 on resilient "Java Hickory" snap-lock strips (2 cartons covers up to 40sq ft.), a carpet knife and extra blades. I would up using a straight pick to get more carpet fibers out from under the cabinets to give a bit more room for the cabinets to overlay the floor.
I measured about 37 square feet in my sprinter and I used every last plank, as you need to cut the planks to length to fit as you go through the rows.
I don't like the rubber edging between the hull and the cockpit on the floor. it worked ok with carpet, but is sticking up making a raised lip overtop of the planks.
Anyway, it was hard but satisfying to get it down in two days. A great weekend project. I would recommend spending the necessary time to get as many fibers out of underneath the cabinets as you can.
Here are some pics of the carpet being cut out, picking the planks and the finished work.
