Default New flooring by Ernie Ekberg

We have all new flooring and carpet in our 94 BB BMC 37', installed by Ernie at his place in Weatherford TX. We selected a engineered bambo flooring from Lumber Liquidators in Ft Worth, and a good quality carpet from Lucky's Flooring in Weatherford, as well as the best RV flooring installer in the business, Ernie.

We had never intended to buy bamboo flooring, but Morning Star flooring is tough and durable. http://www.morningstarbamboo.com/lea...nter/Types.jsp?


Pics of the finished project are at: http://rides.webshots.com/album/578499643vFFIgh

And pics of the work in progress with demo, and install section by section at:

We had never intended to buy bamboo flooring, but the this Morning Star stranded flooring is tough and durable, and has a 30 year warranty. http://www.morningstarbamboo.com/lea...nter/Types.jsp?

Wow!, what a great looking job. Congratulations Ernie, and now another happy BB owner. I can't wait to get you to do floors for me. Oh yeah!, I forgot that I am still a wantabee, and have to find a coach first. LOL

Great choice yall it looks fantastic! Good choice in materials as were quickly running out of hardwood forest.


I went to a earth day gathering with my parents at my local (at the time)
community collage in the late 90's there was a booth diminstrating the "new" bamboo flooring. Harder than the hardwoods and much more readily renewable. Some folks dont know but bamboo is a grass and some strains grow 30 feet a year.


Peace&Love,Darren

Makes good fishin' poles too and must be kin to kudzu. Plant a little in a damp spot on your place and in about 5 years you will have a "forest" of bamboo.

Your coach looks awesome Dan, wow. Now I am more anxious than ever for Ernie to do my SP later this month. Might have to give bamboo some thought!

With all the busness Ernie is getting, he won't be able to do mine. Whoa, wait a minute, I own a Blue Bird. Whereas I may save $2,000 on flooring, I sure my baby will cause me to spend it else where.

Great going Ernie.

I was referring to the Bird not Sue.

This Bird seems to sense when I got a couple of extra bucks and it finds a way to spend them. Sue does a good job of spending also. It just occurred to me. Sue and the coach are attempting to see which can bank rupt me first.

Can not win for losing.
