Help, removed the carpet from 2002 Bounder (my love), slide included. Was told on other site to try vinyl tile planks. Anyway, I am a 60 yr old & my friend is 81. I think it would be too difficult to do ourselves. My question is what do you do about the slide, it lifts us and goes over floor, big black metal on edge, do you tile up to that point, and cover that with something else? My husband knew so much about all of this, and I am trying to learn. Especially, since LazyDaze said they would give me $39K for my diesel pusher 39z. Please help me. I have to take it into the shop, because my fuel gauge stopped working. But, I haven't had too much trouble with it.

Kathy, the metal edge is common. To make it easier on you, install the planks to the edge of where slide comes in. You can get a piece of carpet bound at a real flooring store and then install that. If you want hard surface on the slide, it will start to be complicated.

Finally got the new flooring in and it is great. Took a while with a few problems in shipping it in but all is well now. Jeff Williams did a wonderful job putting it in I can't believe the quality in his workmanship. It took a while but we sure are HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY. We did do the bathroom too, as the DW said so. Jim

Looks great!

It should hold up well against Carolina red mud, or Florida sand.

Finally took up the carpet in our 2000 Winnebago and replaced with vinyl planking. I only did the living room, down the hall, and the bathroom. Did not want to deal with front area and really only concerned about the dirt in the main living area. I was very lucky as the staples were only around the edge of carpet and did not take long to remove.
Here is the finished product:

Looks great, sure is a lot easier to take care of than the carpet was. Looks a lot classier than the carpet in my opinion.
