Tonight I decided to go ahead and get started replacing the carpet in the bedroom. The PO had already put new carpet on the front slide and supplied me with the carpet for the bedroom.
Here I am just getting ready to dismantle the bed and tear up the carpet.
And starting to rip it out. As others indicated lots of staples in many areas.
This is not the first time the carpet was replaced as you can see where the original is still under the cabinets.
Here is a shot with the engine cover removed. Lots easy access to the motor when it is opened up.
And about 50 minutes later all the carpet is up. Still have many staples to pull out. Along with replacing the pad.
Now to my question Carpet or Hardwood?
My plan all along was to put the carpet in the PO supplied. But after working to rip it all out I was thinking hardwood might look much better and hold up better. Also I have no problems working with wood so trimming everything out is a piece of cake. I am a confessed tool junkie so have all the needed tools.
I can handle putting the carpet back in and it is free.
My thoughts were if I am going through this trouble of tearing out and replacing. Probably should out something back that will last and be a visual upgrade. New carpet just does not seem to fit being an upgrade as it is still carpet.
