The hardest part of removing the factory carpet was pulling the staples out. I think the carpet layers were paid by the piece not by the hour. My old carpet also had two different size staples in it.

Also, be aware that some slides operate on rollers and some on skids. Before you lay out any thing other then carpet, try a piece of what you intend to use and let your slide move in and out over it to see if you might need something to protect the new flooring. There are some who have worked real hard laying out a nice laminate floor only to find scratches and gouges in them when they bring the slide in and then later put it out.

My basement is also heated, but I still get cold feet, even with the carpet.

We are headed back to TX the day after the rally in Sevierville to Ernie Ekberg's (Google him. No, really!) place where he will do a masterful job of replacing our worn-out, nasty carper with beautiful engineered hardwood!!!

Wearing slippers or socks is no problem for us - lugging the heavy vacuum out of the basement is!

Here's what we did several years ago. Mix of Pergo and peal-n-stick vinyl. If we had it to do over we'd go with 100% Pergo: Flooring and interior remodel

Look under

PLUMBING & LPG SYSTEMS
Coach Exterior
Heated systems compartment with easy access to hook-ups

http://www.pacnats.com/Links/NRV%20B...Jan%202004.pdf

National calls it "heated" when the heating ducts go through the basement.

I found this for a 2005.

It says the same thing in tiny print.
