most quartz is 93 % stone with 7 % epoxy type glue to hold it together and as a sealer . only down side is most look like crappy Formica
other then the weight of granite I like the way every piece is different with awesome grain running through it 
we have granite floors in the rv now and it has lasted 17 years with no problems ( other then the cost to drive the heavy pig )
I would use granite if I were to redo it but the org . corian colour and the fact that it is all over the coach looks good and there is no wear on any of it and if there was it is a 10 min . fix to rebuff it . the other side with any stone counter tops is that yes if it breaks you have a broken rock ( very hard to repair it ) but in the kitchen business quarts is king right now
but you can install formica 180 fx with a vintage edge ( looks almost like granite ) and now they take a pic . of real granite to make it so it looks real close to the real thing for Pennies  on the $

Yea, Everybody is in the Quartz business now, lots of choice's and $ ranges, I do think the quartz would be a better choice over granite for in the bus that flexes since the quartz is man made and can flex a little without cracking unlike granite there's no flex just breakage Angry we have bent a quartz back splash about a 1/4" in 12' and it didn't break.

Silestone from Home Depot. We have it in our kitchen and swear by it. No sealing ever needed, spilled some blueberry on the counter top and left it overnight. Came off easily with some non scratching Comet in the morning.
Silestone has a Peterbilt straight truck display that goes around the country. No problems with cracking. Good Luck, TomC
PS-Corian looks shabby in a just a few years-unless you polish it often-all of which is not necessary with Silestone.

I don't see why a hot wire as they call it could cut off excess foam but then again be care full of fumes and possible catching fire. The professionals use some sort of motorized saw. Saw this on one of the home flip shows. An old electric knife may work too.

DoubleEagle, nothing to access on the top side of the floor. Nothing at all. All access to the air lines and wiring is via the luggage bay roof panels.

Nothing in the engine area to access? At least in an Eagle, there are many things that are easier to get to from the top, and the baggage bays provide access to only part of the wire & pipe runs.

Cliff, Around here I often get more people looking for old one's we take out than people wanting new ones Shocked, But if I was doing another bus I would go granite or quartz, The nice thing about the solid surface I can do it in house and save $$ Jason

Cliff, I need to move out there near you and open up shop if them change that quick LOL, Around here people keep them till they are falling off the wall. Jason


It is fact Jason you can drive down the streets in the 85253 or 85255 Zip code and there will be complete kitchens or bathroom fixtures setting at curbside to be picked up.That bunch when they remodel a house they leave a 4x8 ft wall and build around that lol

Granite with full backsplash and undermount sink.A little more but well worth the price.  

     I sorta made up my mind that I wouldn't regret the Corian.  It's OK, but to tell you the truth, I'm sorry that I didn't go with the granite or quartz.  I'm trying to watch pennies but I'm only going to do this once and I want to do it really well.
