Carpet change on Sea View

We have a 2000 34 ft Sea View with 2 slides. The carpet is horrible. I would love to rip the livingroom carpet out and replace with vinyl, then use area rugs. I know the slide rides the carpet in, but reading some of the old post, may be able to put vinyl in. How do you find out if it would tear it? I read someone who had plastic runners on the slide so it did not hurt. Don't know how I would look under when it comes in as there is no space to see.

I have no experience in this and my husband can't help figure it out.

I did see where someone put 'wood runners' on their floor when the slide comes in. We rarely move, so it would not be coming in/out very often.

I can't speak for your 2000 model, but my 2004 rides on rollers that are in the floor, not on the carpet. I put in Allure Vinyl type flooring and love it..

I just put rubber backed throw rugs where the slide use to hit the rug.
PS: I pulled up my carpet and there was vinyl under it.

I know there is no vinyl - would have been great. A few months ago I finally took that gold hard piece that held the carpet down. The padding is about disintegrated and a layer of dirt under it. Vacuumed as much as I could. Right now we have a carpet piece covering all the ugly tan carpet. We roll it up when we do bring the slide in.
