I understand there is a company in Texas that restores RV's. I want to have a new carpet installed in our 5th wheel.The slide would have to be removed.

I think a solution would be to spread newspaper around and when it gets soiled just chuck it. Now if you want color use the Sunday comic strips. Just think if you want to see what is on TV just look down. Or when your wife hollers at you put your head down like your sorry, but in fact you are reading the sports section.

We had new carpeting installed in our Class A (no slide) by a regular carpet company. Went to the store and picked out what we wanted and they installed it. We took all the "stuff" out (i.e., sofa, dinette, pilot/co-pilot chairs, toilet) and re-installed everything ourselves. It was a great learning experience. All kidding aside, we learned lots about RV interiors.

Same subject; different question! I want to replace the carpet in the bedroom area of my 24' Nomad TT (aluminum skin). I can't find any screws that hold the nightstands in place. Are these screwed in through the walls studs from the outside or something? How can I get the nightstands out to remove the old carpet and install the new? I really don't want to start pulling the aluminum back or anything!

Thanks,

Jim

More than likely the nightstands just sit on the carpet and are screwed into the walls. Open up doors or take out all the drawers and look in the corners. Checked our new TT and the nightstands are handled that way as well as being attached to the bed frame.

Capt Bud, Hey man thanks for the advice on the floor covering. We did notice your trailer floor covered with some NewJersey newspaper.I guess when you own 2 SHITS zoo's you have to waste real good news paper.Just one more thing, I had to use your rest room and the muliti colored paper( the ones that apples are wraped in ) hurt on the old rectonally. Thanks so much, See ya on the beach. George

Seems I got on the wrong thread. Thought this would be a more-or-less serious discussion about refurbishing an RV.

George T.: It's kinda hard to believe that someone way off in New York State is interested in a Texas company that replaces carpet in RVs! However, I do know of one Texas RV dealer that some of our relatives really like. Over many years' time, my husband's aunt and uncle have bought 3 different fifth wheels from a dealer located a few hundred miles from their hometown which, to me, is an indication of their dealer loyalty. On their most recent fifth wheel, the carpet began to look tired, so they decided to have the dealer's shop take out the slide and replace the old carpet with new. Looks really sharp; dealer did a fine job; the couple is happy as clams.

I never know whether to just blab the dealer information in full, or tell people that I'll gladly respond to a personal email request if someone is interested and wants to know more.

I'll try the latter approach this time. This Texas dealer has a web site. If interested, please contact me, and I'll pass the info on to you.
