replacing TT carpet with sheet vinyl - slides?
Hi, I justs purchased a 2008 Forest River Ultralite 32 foot TT and the carpet is old and worn. I work for a flooring company for a few more weeks and we have some very nice sheet vinyl leftover from jobs that I can have one of the guys install. I don't like synthetic carpet for allergy/offgassing reasons, as well as the fact that I don't like it in a vehicle you use to go camping anyway as it gets too dirty. Some questions
1. replacing the bedroom carpet seems pretty easy, but the carpet in the living area straddles the slide-line and is bound on one end so it slides over the other floor when you close the slide. Has anyone tried replacing this with a resilient product to see if it would slide over as easily? I don't want it to buckle.
2. I could use carpet in the living area because we have 100% wool carpet I could use which won't be as toxic, but I won't have time to bind the edge. woudl rather stick to vinyl if I can.
Any thoughts on this? With dogs and my chemical sensitivities, I like harder surface floors as they are easy to keep clean and are not as toxic. The first thing I did when I bought this thing was throw out the mattress and pillows. Would really like to toss the carpet too. Anything we need to be aware of in regard to the subfloor?
Many thanks in advance.
