Our 99' TS's carpet is due for replacement. It has two slides in living room. My question is:
What are the problems with replacing carpet with good laminate flooring? I'm concerned that the slide rollers will stress it too much. I hope I'm using the right term for the flooring you buy at Lows, etc., and put down like hardwood, but is snapped together and "floating".
We do not travel with our unit, but live full time parked. Eventually it will be moved, and have to retract the slides.

We replaced all of the carpet in our motor home except for the driving area.
We don't have rollers but instead have high density polyurethane strips fit to the bottom of "shoes" under the slides.

We installed it five years ago and the flooring has held up well.
There are a few scratches where the cat batted a couple of paper clips under one slide and where a couple of small pebbles got under the same one somehow.

I ended up putting flexible door slide strips behind the baseboard on the slide edges that act as a barrier to stuff. We also vacuum and mop before we operate the slides and that has worked well.
