I thought the bedroom and hall would have been easier too, but between all the pieces (which I used the old ones as templates) and that the factory guys must have been paid by the staple, it took a while....but it sure came out nicer than the mint green carpet that it replaced.

I sure agree on the Staple Piece work comment, I used a 4 inch Chisel to remove the staples around the edges, haven't started the back section yet, gonna hit it next week. Post some pictures !

Merry Christmas !

Gents,
I'm sure you can help with this simple question.
The previous owner put vinyl, where carpet was, UNDER and in front of the super slide.
I want to remove the vinyl and put carpet back down. This is only an area about 15' x 3'.
What is the best way to attach the carpet to the wood flooring?
I'm fairly sure that I need to fold over the carpet and staple it down, but do I staple it before folding it over itself OR just put the staples on top, through both layers of the folded edges? How did the factory do it?
This should be a simple job, but the slide can rip it up, if done wrong.
Thanks,
Richard

Hello If you have the room under the slide you can do double it over. if not lots of staples , that's how the factory puts down carpet. Lots LOTS lots of stapes!

Commercial luxury vinyl is definitely the way to go. do make sure you both glue and staple the sub floor down. 1/8" subfloor is all you need. Cement the joints and sand. It must be completely smooth before you put down the vinyl tiles. Take out everything you can so you can run the vinyl to the walls. RV Décor in Yuma, AZ has done many of these projects.
