Thought I'd show you this view of Winston's cab and Pergo floor as taken through his sliding door. The floral seat covers are living dead on borrowed time.



Best!

I've got Bamboo!!!




Usually keep it covered with the carpet, cause the dogs need traction to jump up on the rear seat. The bamboo can be quite a skating rink for my fuzzy family!!

"Add a nice throw-rug and some anti-slip stuff and you're golden! "
Make sure that throw rug has a rubber backing. Hate to see anyone slide on their butt getting out of bed in the morning!

One box from the Home Depot did it. Cost about $30. Not as cheap as free, but still not too bad!! :D

found just enough bamboo [roughly 19 sq ft] at the local home "re-store" for a couple bucks, picked up some 3/8" ACX ply for an underlayment, used polyurethane construction glue and set it up. works nicely... just need to do the sound deadening material underneath. jump seats to be mounted shortly...

:shock: Wow....those look awesome, using nailer or glue? i just finished helping install some genuine wood floors in a new McMansion...........so easy to install its sinfull (using glue) My dad has an old leftover stack of oak flooring (from the 1980's) just begging me to install in my westy but i think its got to be nailed in........i dont want to nail anything on my van, think i could glue it?

anyone have pics with the wood and the rails for the middle seat. My vanagon is a syncro with the rails for the middle set and I was wondering how that would work. I have hardwood floors in my bus. I will post some pics.

Those jump seats are sweet! Were the mounts previously there? Same with the seats? I'd like to find something like that to mount up the same way. Maybe even make a bench there and have it fold out to but up with the back seat to make one super bed in the back. I comoe up with silly ideas sometimes :b

Some words of advice from someone who just went through the process. I don't have pics (don't know how to post on the site yet), but I have a new teak floor in my 84 westy. Before laying the floor, put down a layer of dampening material (thin foam or rubber mats). This will cut down road noise and give the floor a softer feel. Also, take out the cabinets and run the floor to the wall...give it a better look. Worked well for me. I'll post pics as soon as I learn the ropes. Safe Travels.

The herringbone and multi-colored floor were both glued and nailed. The ash w/ cherry border was just nailed.

You could glue real solid wood to a sheet of 3/8" plywood using moisture-cure urethane glue and it would probably hold up ok.

Here are some pics of my wood floor and wood paneling



Teak Flooring


This is hand sanded, then coated Birch. It is above the driver seats, rear seats, rear bed, on the slider door, and on the upper trim.
