Replacing Carpet

I am about to replace carpet with hard flooring or new carpet. I have a slide that does not have rollers and extends to near floor level when out and most of the MH has carpet including the slide. I have read most of the threads re. carpet or hard surface installations but I have not seen anyone do both except when there is a doghouse which I dont have.

My concern is the slide coming in and damaging a new hard surface since it was designed to float on carpet. The MH I just sold had laminate and even with rollers on the slide it scratched the laminate.

I am thinking of putting in new carpet where the slide would come in and do the rest of the floor in a hard surface product.

Has anyone seen that done and how did it look? I think I will have to re-carpet the slide itself since the edge would be a bear to deal with in hard surface materials and the other new carpet strip would look really weird if there was a different floor next to it. Any thoughts or comments?

John

I saw this at a local RV store just the other day. I don't have a slide and have no experience with it but figured I'd pass this along, maybe it could help you.

Camco RV Slide-Out Slickers - 40" Pair

(Just found this site with them for example, not suggesting getting them there)

Those are for carpet. They have barbs that stick in the carpet. The slide slides on carpet ok without anything.

My issue was with it sliding on a new hard surface.

Yep, I get that. Just thinking if there was something that could be laid down while it slides could help protect it.

Use carpet on the slides to prevent damage to the wood.
