Best answers I've seen so far. I've tried most of the methods listed above except using a pro. I still use the "resolve" method for spot cleaning, but have eliminated most of that by using the the rubber backed bathroom rugs in the heavy traffic areas, to include under the dinning booth and in front of the driver's and co-pilot seats. Next full cleaning, I'll go with Stanley Steemer. This is some what like bug extermination on the sticks and bricks, I get bi-monthly service and a couple of times per year I have him do the RV as well.

We find regular vacuuming with our little Hoover upright-vac w/bristles does wonders. I try to do it once every couple of days for a few minutes (and taking off your shoes of course). I do have an Bissle cannister shampooer that does a great job of getting things clean though. On mud spots, I use Resolve High-traffic Foam. Used it on my car too....great results. Just like my car, our motorhome has light beige carpets.

I used Stanley Steemer Carpet Cleaner. They were a little expensive, but they did a great job and I think it was worth it!

I use regular car carpet foam cleaner. Don't have that much carpet and only takes a few minutes.

I find the most reputable local professional carpet cleaner.

They have always done a fantastic job for $75 - $100.

A lot cheaper than renting some lame equipment in addition to the time to do it yourself.
