2007 BH - Replace booth with table/chairs new flooring

Well when I got my BH it was already missing the booth, and the floor had holes for the table stand and other issues from the booth. He had also removed the couch and created an extended countertop with tile top, which isn't bad so I left it for now. I also in this build used some old oak bits I had in the shop to create new fronts for the open space where the couch was, make a shelf and rework where the trash can sliding rack was loaded.

To replace the flooring we had to fix the holes in the floor which I did with bits of spare plywood as shown in the pictures. I smoothed out the imperfections with filler and then we painted the plywood so the stick-down Armstrong tiles would adhere better. My wife had the idea of staggering the rows and this really did help the look a lot.

I got a used RV table and chairs from classifieds and its looking good now!!

The patient



having trouble with pictures...

Hey Dirkdaddy... your photos aren't working (at least for me). I'm anxious to see how your new set looks.

Dirkdaddy: read this on posting pics. There are a number of ways to do it.

More pictures. After putting under deck supports into the holes, cut round plugs and screwed them down, then smoothed all the floor imperfections with a small pail of smoothing floor prep stuff. Taking out all the staples and nails and stuff took some doing. The vents in floor were not cut parallel to the walls, and the metal flange made it tough to get flat enough, so I cut them down and bent inside, then used metal duct tape to seal it off. Then I could place tiles right up to the edge w/o dealing with the metal flanges. This was PAIN and slowed things down a fair amount. Small cuts took a lot of time, the big spaces went very fast!

I got the DW involved and she's very happy with the flooring, its padded more than stock and sweeps out easily, looks good and she picked the color which I'm warming up to, to offset the lots of brown wood. It makes it feel "cooler" which is a plus in TX and makes it brighter reflecting light.

I have 4 chairs but they were on a bed to get them out of the way.

The folding wall was taken out by prior owner too, I just got a replacement one in the mail recently but haven't installed. Need to get trailer inspected / registered again first before anything else.

FYI, some on another thread commented on the floor stains. Yes, it probably got wet at some point. Houston was hit with a hurricane in 2011 and the windows no doubt leaked, they leaked on my house (100mph wind and heavy rain will do that) but there is no leak currently and the flooring was super solid and bone dry. It does look suspect in the picture however.

The table and floor were great upgrades! That and LED lights were my favorite things to show off, makes it look a lot newer than it really is (07). We're happy with it and excited about doing more camping now. Have next two weekends planned if it dries out a little bit! Texas has been so wet!

I hear you on the weather. We had more rain last weekend than I've seen in a very long time and they're saying perhaps more coming this weekend. We're ready to head out too but I'm hoping the rain stays gone so we can enjoy the time out.
