Change wood floor to carpet?

We have a Safari Trek with partial wood floor in the kitchen area. Our elderly German Shepherd Dog has a very hard time walking and slipping on the wood. I have cut a large piece of carpet to cover the wood, but this is a temporary solution. The existing carpet sections are original and don't come really clean when using a carpet cleaning machine, so I'm considering removing the wood for a complete carpet installation (except the bathroom). Has anyone done this?.

I recently took up the hardwood in the kitchen. It was a real pain as it was all glued down. Wound up taking a good bit of the plywood subfloor with it.

However, I replaced it and all the carpet with vinyl laminate. It's impossible to keep carpet clean in an RV, especially with 2 dogs.

Well George, I can relate. We needed new carpet in our MH so I took a serious look at the situation and came to the conclusion that if I were to tackle this on my own it would simply result in a whole mess of pain and suffering.
So, as a compromise, I took it to a shop in Spokane and DW & I picked out the new color (which was the 1st part of my comitment) and the shop agreeded to replace all the carpet with new stuff for which I would give them some money. (2nd part of my comitment).
Now we have new carpet and best of all NO PAIN.
