I like it! The wife and I just took a look on HD's website, and we really like the "barnwood" color. We've been talking about getting the carpet out of the Scamp. Now I know what to put in!

Hi Jean L

The Boler is a Canadian one. Made in Peace River AB on the tag. My father tells me it's a 72 but as I work on it many things have manufacturing dates from 1970.

New Allure Floor in my Egg

Brian you gave me the incentive to start in on my flooring renovation in my camper. I purchased the Oak Allure flooring. I was quite worried that perhaps the previous owner had glued down the green indoor/outdoor carpeting, which turned out not to be the case..thankfully.
However,..being that the camper is a 1973..I did find a really large, rather badly done patch job on the lower section of floor. They'd replaced a section with a piece of plywood that was too thick and left a trench about 1/8" to 1/4" surrounding the area they'd patched..which they'd tried to fill with what looked like drywall patch. Fortunately, it came up fairly easily.
My neighbor helped me put down a new base of luan plywood and the next day I was good to go with beginning with the new Allure floor. Next weekend I'll get around to trimming it out around the edges. And I guess I'm planning to caulk the area in front of the bathroom and door to the exterior, unless someone else has a different suggestion.
I love, love, love, how this looks! Next week I'm planning on painting the inside to freshen it up a bit.
Thanks for all of the incentive!

Thanks Brian, I'm no carpenter..and some of those little zigs and zags around the perimeter were tough to cut. LOL..I will no doubt learn alot with my new coping saw on how to install trim. But I'm game if nothing else.

Thanks again, De

Thanks Donna, it's a whale of a lot better than what I had in there. I adore my little camper. Bit by bit I'll make it look like new again! :-)

Denise, it doesn't need to be "new again," it just needs to be perfect for you... whatever that is

Funny James..LOL Actually there is one spot in the back..ha,ha, that I'm hoping that the trim covers. When I say I'm not a carpenter..I couldn't be more honest. LOL
But thanks!

Hi Jean,

My 1972 Boler appears to have the same flooring (light green pattern) it was made in Peace River, Alberta. Maybe they used one source for materials on some things?

Trailer: 17 ft Burro
Posts: 22
After reading many post/threads here about flooring options I too have embarked on installing the Allure flooring '87 17' Burro WideBody . My local HD had a sale on Old Country Pine so I picked some up. Donna D. had mentioned the idea of using those kids room foam squares that puzzle piece together as an underlay to add some insulation (My Burro has none at the moment). I pulled out the old green boat carpet laying it over the assembled foam squares and used it as a template to cut the foam.

I did have a small rotten spot in the floor in the very front that I had to patch. Luckily it wasn't too difficult.

Tonight I hope to get the foam layer in.

My question for y'all is would you have the planks running the length of the camper or would you have the running side to side? I'm asking this due to thinking it may be easier on the install to run them side to side because cutting the vinyl "planks" on the ends to the contour of the wall would be less hassles than cutting the "planks" lengthwise!?!

What are y'alls thoughts on installation plank direction?

Greg
