    Hi All,

    Anyone know of somebody who could replace the Lino in my motorhome?

    The Lino had to be cut to replace some floor after a leak, would like to get the flooring replaced s the cut section looks a little unsightly.

    I would have a go myself but the lino was installed under all the fittings and furniture, so i guess the easiest would be to cut it out and cut the new lino in.

    Any dvice always welcome :thumb:

    I recently had the carpet taken out of my motorhome and replaced with vinyl by CareAvan of Birmingham. They did an excellent job.

    most local vinyl fitters will give you a quote. the hardest part is removing the old vinyl if glued down. have done the job before myself

    run a stanley knife round the edges first
    then warm up the first edge with a hot air gun and start to peel back
    move forward and warm next few inches
    repeat till vinyl is removed
    scrape up any lumps of glue with a very sharp wallpaper scraper
    clean the floor thoroughly and allow to dry

    refitting is a case of cutting replacement vinyl to fit
    then roll back to centre and apply suitable glue to first 12inches from centre
    wait till glue is tacky
    firmly roll down the corresponding vinyl
    repeat till you get to the end
    the roll back other half and repeat above
    seal edges and joints with correct coloured sealant

    it can be done DIY but a pro fitter will take half the time to give a good finish

    Thank you for the info, I quite like the idea of someone else doing it. The removal sounds ok but cutting it back in place worries me a little. Also if it starts peeling up after six months I can throw it back at whoever installed it :Wink:
