Carpet Replacement Recommendations??

Hello all....well, Sally got me. Ripped the cover off the refrigerator vent and dumped an inch of water inside my 04 Safari. I pulled up most of the wet carpet and used wet vac and fans for several hours to dry out wood floor. Now in search of someone to install new carpet. Has anyone had carpet installed in Alabama, Louisiana or Florida Gulf coast area that might be able to recommend. (I have talked to Daniel Humphries the Tiffin guy but he can't get to me for months)

Can't help with a referral but I did have to go through some of what you're going through now.

The water pump on ours decided to slowly leak water while in storage. Needless to say, we had to get the carpet replaced. I decided to go ahead and have all the carpet replaced in the motorhome. Ours does have a single slide.

Was hesitant about getting a run of the mill carpet company to do the replacement so decided I'd call a couple of the local stores to see how confident they sounded over the phone. The 2nd call got the store owner who told me he had an employee that was experienced with RVs. The price was high but the job seems to have been done right.

Hopefully someone will chime in with a good recommendation. If not, calling and getting that good feeling for a local business over the phone may be your best bet. You might even ask if they could give you a couple of names of customers you could talk with to see how their experience turned out.

We had Classic Coach Works in Ormond Beach, FL put all new tile floors and new carpet in our coach. We're supposed to pick it up this week. I haven't seen the work in person yet but from the pics on their website it looks awesome. When we dropped our coach off they had so many there they didn't have anywhere to park ours!!! Even with that much business they got ours done in about 3 weeks and we had a whole list of things for them to do. I'll post some pics when we get ours back.

Give Alan Williams a call at Classic Coach Works. 386-944-9716. Tell him Curtis Smith said to call. You can see their work at RV Renovations and RV Service | Classic Coach Works.

Good luck in your search for an installer Cliff....sorry I can't help with that. If you have the carpet out already and the floor is dry....have you considered carpet tiles? We did that this last time around....not very costly....easy to replace if necessary and they wear well. The home stores often carry quality tiles in stock or are a short order away.

Again...best of luck and sorry to hear of your troubles.

I also have a Safari. I am currently looking into removing the carpet ( except in the slides) and the ceramic tile to install new vinyl plank. They have very nice stuff out there. Much of it used in new high end coaches.

My problem and big concern from many instances of evidence to folks who have had this flooring change is that engineered wood and vinyl planks scratch severely with slide out movement. There are some precautions that can be taken...but the risk is always there.

A few years ago on our new to us coach the cheap ultra leather started to delaminate. Took it to Classic coach works (ccw) and had the couch with recliner and both chairs recovered in the real ultra leather.
Classic Coach works is a quality driven business.

Some time after my recover when hurricane Mathew was approaching i was ready to take the rv to safer ground. Mathew was supposed to come up the middle of the state and then who knew where. I called CCW and asked if they were taking in any rv's to shelter out the hurricane as they did snowbird storage, They weren't but told me if i could get there soon as they were closing up for the storm. I did get there and a week later when i went to pick it up i asked what do i owe. to my surprise they said nothing. A really great company.

Wow! That's awesome. Good to hear someone has had a good experience with them. Our experience has been great so far. I just added a couple more things on the list for CCW to do before we go pick up the RV. I can't wait!!

I would also run a couple dehumidifiers and fans for several days . ACs help but can't seem get air near as dry. A preemptive strike with Odor ban , or other enzyme odor remover or ozone machine not a bad idea.
Many carpet stores just use subcontractors to install nowadays. If you make a few calls and see if one would do RV . If you removed all the carpet and staples that's the worse part.
