Carpet replacement

We are wanting to replace the carpet in our Allure. Even with professional cleaning, the carpet in the front (slide floor/small piece in front of slide) look dingy. Bedroom carpet looks better but we'd like to get something better and a bit darker color.

I had planned to DIY but DW thinks my geezer knees won't like it so I called CC just for kicks to see what they would charge. They estimate 30 hours of labor if we let them have the coach and 40 if we have to have it back every night. At their shop rate, that is between $3,500 and $4,600 just for labor . That seems excessive to me but I may find out differently when I get more estimates. I have been unable to find any local carpet shops who will do it or recommend anyone.

I would just do high quality carpet tiles but not sure how I could make them work on the carpeted panels between the cabinets and floor in the bedroom.

Some 5 yrs ago I had the LR & BR carpet replaced for $800 in labor on my non slide Intrigue. I helped remove the couch, cabinet, & driver & passenger seats. Took them a long day, 2 guys. I know I got a deal, but $4000?? Wow. think I'd keep shopping. I'd think $1500 to $2000 would be more in line. Good luck

I have a receipt from when I purchased my Moho last August from Fountain rv in Florida. The owner supplied the carpet and the labor was $500.00 to remove and reinstall. We don't have carpet I the kitchen and bath.

I agree, they don't really want to do the work. Carpet and flooring are not cheap to replace, but $4000?

Keep shopping around!

I was given a ball park estimate to remove carpet and tile, install heated floor and then install whatever I wanted, wood, more tile, carpet, etc. for $10K. Most of the cost was to get the bare floor totally level for the installation of the heating elements.This for a 40ft coach

Just finished my Allure 36 not really that hard. Bought crown staple gun about $50, box of staples. Took as much time to remove staples as to put in carpet. Pretty easy if you have time. No need for carpet stretchers, just lay out, trim staple. Had to use grinder with thin cutting disk to cut bolts on both front seats, really sounds harder than it was. Would do again especially if it's $1000's to have done. Refinished wood floor at same time took about a month working few nights and weekends not every day, knees to old for every day grind.

To the OP: Keep looking for an independent carpet installer. We are half way through having all the carpet replaced in our motor home. The pro that is doing the work was referred by the carpet store where we found the replacement carpeting. They didn't want to do the install, but they did want to sell us the carpet & padding. They explained that the per yard carpet installation price just doesn't work for motor homes & boats. Both are too time consuming for small yardage amounts. So, they stay out of it. They recommended 2 installers & we went with the guy that did our last motor home. (He's a perfectionist & that's what we like.) We, also got an estimate from the manufacturer before starting this project. (Shocked, when it came in over $5000.) This seems to be one of those times when it pays to shop around. Our cost for top-knotch materials & A+ labor is approx. $850. I'll post some pictures when it's done.

Wink Pictures of finished carpet install

Our carpet replacement project is done & we love it. Here are some pictures taken when things were torn apart (prepare for a mess!) & with the carpet installed. The color is off in these pictures. We picked this carpet because it has all the colors found in the tile. (A combination of taupes & grays & creams.)
Today, as we started to move furniture back into the motor home, we came up with the next project. We placed the chair & foot stool where the table was. I always thought the table with 4 chairs was too big for that space. Now, we're looking for a smaller (maybe folding) table. It never ends.

Looks awesome. I like having carpet in the living room and bedroom. I'm not into the laminate wood thing.

I agree with schools out. We bought Shaw carpet for our 34 ft Allure and one of the store's recommended installers did the job. Started at 8:30 one morning and finished at about midnight. Beautiful job, and at the end of it all he charged us $400. We just had a similar Shaw carpet installed in two large MBR closets and he did a great job there also. Bottom line is there are other options. Our total cost was about $2400.
