We use a "packing quilt" available at Harbor Freight. Fits the living room area perfectly, they are cheap and should an "accident" occur, it's folded up and put below. All are machine washed/dried at home...

I have used that film for the past two seasons to cover the strip of carpet that is exposed when the slides are in. Very high traffic area. I replace it at the end of the season. When the coach is parked and the slides are out, we have a carpet runner that covers it. I've noticed no adhesive residue.

IMHO, carpet has no place in the main living areas of an RV that actual people/kids/pets inhabit. Last few years, makers seem to understand this and there are many more practical options available. If ya' got it, get rid of it.

I've tried it all over the years...runners, sticky stuff, even cut up office chair protectors for the high wear areas. Eventually tore out all the carpet in the main living areas and replaced it with laminate flooring. Ah...happiness!

Same here ... we NOW have hardwood flooring in bedroom, kitchen, and living area. Tile in bath. Allure vinyl in entrance step well and driver's foot well. The only remaining carpet is a vertical piece under a nightstand and some sections inside cabinets that would be very hard to remove. No more allergies !

I finally had it with carpeting in the main living area. Ripped the carpet out and will be putting in vinyl tile. Sub flooring is soft in spots so thinking of adding another 1/2" plywood flooring before putting down the vinyl floor tiles.

How does that sound?

Home Depot also sells the plastic, I use it all the time for tailgating or hunting trips. I typically put it on in the Fall and just use Swifter on it until it needs replacing or until Spring.
