Ive been looking at endless threads of wood floor installs but I am not really satisfied with what I have found. So I have the plywood that covers the *wavey* part of the floor and then I also have a backer board cut to the shape of the floor that goes under the jump seat and front of the bed and closet. Should I re install both those and then install the wood floor and cut around the jump seat and bed/closet? (which will increase the height of the floor) OR should I ditch the second piece of backer and just install the hard wood on top of the thin plywood and make cuts for the bed/closet and jump seat bolt holes? ( I currently have no sink)

Thoughts? Pictures??

go to the "gallery" up top and "search", type in "paulsvwbug" next to "search for submitter" and you'll find my photo's of my westy and floor install. I didn't use real wood, the plywood I used is two sheets of 1/8 thickness each, cut to fit and to be flat. I had to cut various pieces to make it completely flat. I went to Home Depot and got the water proof resilient plank flooring from Traffic Master. It's fairly easy to cut and snaps together.

hmm I like how you did that, was it just the plywood over the bare floor?
