Carpet Replacement with Karndean flooring

I replaced my carpet and tile in our 03 Newmar, without removing it under the slide. Ernie would be very disappointed in me, but I am old. Ha. Also, I was concerned doing this by myself I would screw something up. We have had the slide out many times in the last two months with no issues. I cut the carpet very close and used Johnsonite molding to make the transition. It works great! Our couch has couple inches of overhang so it looks good Click image for larger version

ID:	61931we think. I cut the tile a bit underneath the cabinets and covered the seam with quarter round attached to the cabinet on the slide. I used Karndean flooring even though is does cost more. It certainly passes the smell test. If you haven't smelled some of the product sold in Lowes and Home Depot you might do so before you buy.

Laminate or Karndean vs carpet

Considering replacing carpet in my "D" with laminate or Karndean. For those that have what about the noise level inside without the carpet to buffer?

I used Karndean and have not noticed any difference in noise level. It has certainly passed the most critical test of my wife's super hearing that won't let me chew nuts next to her. I have an 03 Dutch Star dp and have very pleased with the Karndean product.

Karndean K 91-A, it is what they recommended. I have all you need out in the garage. It was cheaper to buy the 5 gallon tub. One thing I would do is to be sure the sub-floor is smooth. Where I pulled up the tile in the kitchen, I pulled up small amounts of partical board. I thought it should not be a problem that the flooring would be stiff enough to cover the spots. I did use some spackling compound trying to fill them before I laid the floor. They needed so little spackling compound that I again thought it would not make any difference, so I did not complete the spackling project. Well, only I can see the issue after completion, but it is there. It still looks great and I am impressed that I could do as well as I did. Where the carpet was, it is perfect. I am 67 yrs old and in pretty good shape, but it was an effort,,,,,that I would do again.

Thanks for the reply. I am 65 not in great shape, but. I have a friend who is great with wood an wants to help. I'll pull the carpet and he will do the wood work. Did you glue the wood to the metal in front of the couch. My wife wants to leave the tile so I'll jus use some type of transition strip.

I have to replace my existing sheet vinyl with luxury vinyl planks and Kardean is one brand on my list. Just curious as to where you were able to purchase the flooring from?

I got a wholesale dealer to sell it to me. Being a bit ignorant of who I was calling or talking to about the Karndean product I tried to order it. The young salesman put the order under a contractor's code so I did save some money. If you call Karndean or search their web-site is how I found my source. One of the best things about their product is that it has no order. Smell the product in Lowe's or Home Depot. Big difference! Good luck in your project. David
