Brake pedal going to the floor !!!

I have a 1995 C class RV on a E350 chassis I have just replaced the two front brake hoses with NEW ones I have blead the brakes have a good pedal but when you keep your foot on it it goes slowly to the floor, there are no fluid leaks so I though that the master cylinder was shot and I replaced it with a NEW cylinder and it is still doing the same thing the pedal is still going slowly to the floor can anyone help with this one??

That is strange, I had that problem on my old bronco and it was the master cylinder leaking internally. How about any air possibly in the lines? IDK heres a , to get some more opinions.
