Hi all recently bought a T6 Highline LWB that I'm converting.
Firstly I need a replacement front vinyl floor or carpet. The old one was in a very sticky smelly state. If anyone has one or knows where I can get a good condition one please let me know.
Also I have a question about 9mm ply...
I'm at the stage of laying my Altro flooring once I have cut it what glue have you guys laid down the flooring with. I am thinking if I actually need to glue it all down??
It's 2mm thick, it will have a kitchen on it, RIB seat and bed boards....Hmm not sure I need to glue it? It will be fixed...
Putting in an order for my floor today so no pics as yet but will be coming soon!
I've seen some great floors (@Ads_Essex , @JaySal, @Rapt0rUK ) from other threads and thought be good to pull them together and be a good place to post advice/tips in one easy to find place.
new to the group! Currently looking at options for the flooring.
I have sound proofed the floor and purchased the deeper side steps but I’m unsure on what thickness batons and ply flooring I should use?
also looking at floor finishes ideally need something waterproof and dark...
Just wondering if anyone has used these coverings? 3mm thick.
I have a Shuttle with the carpet, but it really doesn't suit our lifestyle. I mountain bike, and we are beach people, so the carpet will very quickly get ruined. I'm contemplating a cover over the whole rear area, but...
Has anyone used 9mm ply to line their floor for a camper conversion
I’ve put down 9mm batons and dodo mat in between which works out same overall height.
mum about to cover in 6mm dodo liner before I ply line.
I’ve put down my original 9mm Floor and there doesn’t seem to be any movement.
So here is my step by step on how I removed the carpet in a 2017 caravelle and replace it with IVC black bamboo vinyl..in the process I also added additional sound deadening, insulation and some cables for 240v and 12v sockets..the job is fairly straight forward but this is not a basic DIY job I...
hi i use my swb t6 as a van and transport heavy ish motorbikes in the back they sit in their stands. i currently have a ply lined floor is there something a bit prettier perhaps in black thats as hard wearing maybe even cut to shape for a swb?
Vinyl floor has arrived but I cannot find a clear answer for a van install to avoid "stretch". If thats even something happens in vans.
My ply floor is 1 piece so plan is to remove and adhere the full vinyl in the garden on some saw horses( no room inside) then once on trim.
2017 , Just thinking of options for rear floor. Sides and ceiling are done need to move onto the floor now and take the pain to get the rock ‘n’ roll bed fitted. options
1) VW rubber load liner, I will need to get a swb van version so it doesn’t have the seat holes.
2) insulate ply line and...
I have a carpet fitted to my van which is now pretty dirty and past saving. What’s the best flooring to use in the back of a day van / camper..also the best place to buy it. Price conscious and his is it stuck down if you go the Altro route?
So, just started my ply floor. Made an exact template from cardboard and hot glue. Will then make a 3mm MDF full size floor which will be my master template for the future. I will use this to make my 12mm ply floor.
Hi all I’m looking for recommendations for companies to supply a plywood floor for a T6, based in the northeast, already wasted money buying a very poor fitting one off eBay, I’ve seen a few camper conversion companies doing some really good ones but they don’t post and are to far away.. any...
For sale a 12mm ply floor for a SWB T6.
Was fitted but realised with the floating floor I put under it, it was too tall. Had to get the 9mm.
Has been trimmed to fit with the carpeting and has light dried glue on it.
£20. Location Basingstoke. Collection only.
Hello, just wondering how much Altro flooring i need to do a Swb Kombi? Does it just come in just one width and you specify the length? The one i have my eye on is a wood effect one so can't see anyone selling the pre-cut ones in this style,thanks very much
I'm currently fitting my floor to my t6
I've got a 8mm MDF veneers with an additional 1mm oak either side (10mm floor total)
Do I need to lay batons?...
Can I not just bond it directly to the metal corrogations of the van floor??
The mdf/oak will be sealed with an oil.
Thankyou for any...
Hi guys just wondering how you would insulate and sound deaden the floor?
I used silent coat and dodo thermo van liner for walls but not sure what to use for the floor?
Also whats the process for putting an altro floor down?
I currently have a factory Kombi rubber floor.
