Also, even though I made sure there was clearance beneath the slideout and the floor, things get brought into the MH that created scratches in the floor when the slide is operated. If your clearances are tight, especially if your slide drops to level the coach floor. I do a lot of my own work and was able to complete the new carpeting install myself for around $600.00. I purchased 240 sq ft. of carpet and padding because I did not want seams.
I'm betting you really researched the best carpet for the job. What brand and type did you use?

We had the floor in our coach re-carpeted a couple of years ago. I agree with the post above that an independent carpet installer is the way to go. Find a good carpet store near you - not a box store or a chain. They should have a Roledex of sorts filled with names of local independent installers. If you explain the application, they should be able to recommend someone who has experience with motor homes and travel trailers. You don't want someone learning on the job with your coach.

We used a nylon plush carpet which was fairly dense. The more yarns, the more it will hold up to heavy traffic in the main walkways of the coach. Polyester has come a long way, but it was explained to me that nylon is still better and about as good as you can get without going with wool.

The installation on ours was different than I expected. The installer recommended a dense rubber type padding, which he glued directly to the sub floor. The carpet is then glued to the padding. The only places which were stapled were a few parts of the stairs and as he wrapped around the bullnose where the floor met the stairs.

We had OMC install one sheet of vinyl of a wood gain pattern. We leave shoes outside and wipe our feet prior to entry and I amazed at all the dirt that shows up when we sweep up. There is no way I'd go back to carpet.
