I think if I was Ernie I would ask for a ride in that FC before I left.

Ernie,

I am learning that the demo part of the job is the worst.....I spent half the day getting half of the tile up in the kitchen of the BMC. That along with the countless staples that BB liked to use on the carpet gives me a real appreciation for the job you do on these coaches. They really weren't built to be taken apart.

Thanks Dan, it is a chore at times. Gotcha topped on time--last year on a Monaco Windsor it took the owners and Bim and I 5 days to take up the tile in their coach. I think thats the last time Bim helped me.

I can understand why it was the last time ........
I am using an air chisel now, started with a hammer and a wide chisel. That would have taken several days.

Installed the luxury vinyl planks in the galley. Mike out did himself in the carpet: he bought 100% wool, woven, cable yarn. For those that are not familiar with this construction- its' like having springs on your feet. Lots of resilience and weight.

Looks great.
I don't know what vinyl planks you are using, but they appear in the pictures to be real wood. That carpet should last him another 20-some years.
