Good Bye Carpet, Hello Vinyl

Well I have finally completed my renovation. I have previously posted pictures of my counter-top replacements, the removal of the cooktop/oven and installation of a slide in cooktop and a dishwasher, and then the relocation of my tv from the front to mid-coach. The final step was the removal of the carpet and installation of the congoleum air step plus vinyl. Pictures attached (I hope) May have to upload pictures more than once.

Good improvement. Carpet has no place in an RV.

Very nice. I wonder - do we ever really complete a renovation? I'm sure there will be something else.

Nice job. If you have some spare time you could come and do mine, just for a change of pace from working on yours. Jim

I would love to get rid of the carpet in the living room, but what do you do about the carpet on the slides?

With a flat floor slide, I found it easiest to keep carpet on the slide floors. It hides the joint formed when the slide is extended. I installed new carpet on the slide floors with a couple of area rugs I bought from WalMart. I cut them to size and secured them to the slide floor with staples and carpet tape. It's really pretty easy and not very expensive so we can "change out our carpet" to change the decor without too much trouble or expense.

MSHappycampers, I kept the carpet on the slide. Didn't want to take all the furniture off. I do have enough vinyl left to do it if the DW decides she wants me to do it. Thanks to everyone for the comments.

With all the new mouldings and trim pieces, you CAN install wood on your slides- flat floor- or raised- there are moulding to make it work and get rid of carpet.
