You can install vinyl tiles on floor and keep carpet on slides. If you lift the slide so the tiles can go as far as 'under' the rollers the tiles will not rip. I used Armstrong LVT's (luxury vinyl tile).

I used sheet vinl so there would be no seams ran it up the slide bars on the floor you couldnt see them because of the carpet looks really good and easy to clean have had the slides in and outa couple of times and no marks yet I did use soom self stick furniture pads under the front edge of the slides( got them at Big Lots) they tend to dip right before they close all the way

We recently had sheet vinyl installed. Left the carpet in the slide area. No interference problem whatsoever.

One of the best changes we have done!

How to install Vinyl Floor

2012 Montana 3400RL. Did 6 month and 20K miles in 20014. Cleaned the carpet when we got home in October. The dirty water was black so the DW BOSS... said the carpet had to go.

Puller carpet on floor, left it on the slides. When you have the carpet up check subfloor for loose screws or squeeky spots. Rescrew as needed.

I used 48" X 6" Vinyl planks from Lumber Liquidators that snaps together. It can be installed without glueing down but I glued everyother row. This product makes for easy install and looks like the Tiffan class A floor we saw at the Pamona RV show. No problem with the slides.

The DW loves it and so does the dogs. Happy Wife Happy Life.

Happy new year

Just FYI -- Allure Flooring is a great product but the glue strip version does not work in RV well. Slide pulls it apart after awhile. Might be OK if glued to floor or maybe the snap lock planks would work. Ours has been down less than a year and I will replace this spring!. Probably go to Vinyly Sheet and put a couple runners down for the rollers on the slide. We have a LARGE and heavy slide so ot takes a beating.
