Replacing carpet with wood flooring

Has anyone replaced their carpet with wood? I am wondering the cost to have it done, not doing it yourself.

I worked for a RV rental co and we did it a few times. Cut around carpet were it hits the walls and cabinets. The manufacture probably layer the cabinets on top of the rug. You don't need to take the cabinets out. Take out the carpet. Hope it's not gilded to the floor. Saw only one. Place a verier between the new flooring and the subfloor. You will need some moulding where the carpet hits the walls and cabinets. Easy. Directions will be on your new flooring.

Like any wood floor install--need to consider how slick the floors will be while driving [for your passengers!!!!!] and overall durability [dents, scratches, water damage, etc]...

I had mine done in a 40' American Eagle, absolutely loved it! Less than $1,500, all on a 45 degree. I had a Mobile RV guy who had a flooring guy install. I bought the flooring at Home Depot.

No issue with slippery, updated the coach nicely in my opinion, made the coach look way warmer.

Besides the cost to have it done, any concerns about adding more weight to the already overloaded beast when replacing the carpet with wood?

Did the kitchen area of ours using wood looking vinyl. Looks good, easy. Got the new flooring planks at lowes.

the weight would be like having another person on board- but the weight will be spread throughout the coach

I been think about installing the type of flooring in our 2004 Fleewood. How did you handle moving the couch and dinning tables, etc? also did you glue down the laminate flooring planks? I am thinking just do new carpet in the bedroom area and the rest with laminate flooring. Looks to me they just glue down the carpet no padding?

There are some great updates for carpet padding that is far superior then what the factory used. Rule of thumb: don't get any pad that is higher then the pins on the tack strip. The carpet will not stay down.
Wood flooring over radiant heat: will work fine if you don't go any thicker then the old carpet and pad.

Couch, chairs, etc were unbolted and removed from coach or moved out of work area during installation. I had 2 couches and 2 captain chairs removed. The dinette was a table mounted on the wall and the 2 chairs simply removed until project was completed. Floor was floating if I recall the installation correctly (2012)? After floor installed trim was cut around the perimeter. Trim is most expensive parts and labor as I recall. I did not install myself.

If you do a search, there is someone else who posted very detail pictures and procedures on here how he did his himself.
