I walked in and found the bedroom carpet soaked about two years ago. The rig was in storage. Turned out the fresh water pump housing had been leaking underneath for several days. Had to disassemble the bed and remove the fresh water tank so I could pull the wet carpet and start the drying process.

We used a regular carpet/flooring store when we had ours done a few years ago. The store has been here for many years and I made sure to talk with the owner himself to get a feel for how experienced his company was. Also talked to the installer who said he had worked with RVs before.

I did save a little bit on labor charges by doing some of the prep work. Had already removed bed and fresh water tank. Also removed the hvac vents, recliner, and the driver/passenger seats up front. Still wasn't cheap, think I remember it being a little over $2000. But they did do a good job!

In our area most carpet installers will not do such a small job, but one of them may do it as a non store job. Cash works wonders. I would pull out everything you can to make it easier on the installer. If your current carpet was originally installed as ours was, you will have hundreds of staples to remove.

In Ormond Beach, FL, there's Classic Coach Works ("CCW," link here). I have no experience with them, but have seen their name on and off on iRV2.

I installed Karndean flooring after removing the carpet from my coach. I first heard about Karndean when browsing the CCW Web site.

Our new MH came without carpet except on the slides. Wife likes carpet. Dealer had carpet installed by a local (Elkhart) carpet store. I don't believe they removed any furniture to do it, but I might be wrong about that.

I just had Camping World (I know, I know) replace my carpet, vinyl, couch, and dinette. I thought they did an excellent job. They had me buy my flooring from a 3rd party because it would be cheaper as well as buy my dinette from a 3rd party because it would be cheaper.

One thing to look at if you have a bed frame that rolls back and forth with a slide is the bottom of the bed box. When I removed mine I found the bottom of the bed frame chewed up due to the weight on the small rollers. Before I put the bed back in place I added metal plates on the bottom. The bed slide moves in much more smoothly.

FWIW, I replaced all the flooring in my ~40' coach with 2 slides. I spent $1600 just on materials. Not a straight forward job, very tedious, I took my time but had ~100 hours of work into it, an experience floor person would do better but not sure how much.
