Can you take out the carpet?

We have a 2015 38GK and are full timers. The carpet always looks terrible.

We'd like to just take it out, but wonder if there is linoleum under the carpet. Even if there is, would it have to be replaced?

We would leave the carpet under the couch and chairs and just remove the carpet between the main slides.

Has anyone out there made this change? Suggestions?

Jim

We did that to our 39MB and love it. We had to leave the carpet on the slide only.

Was there linoleum under the carpet? Or did you have to put down new flooring?

We replaced all the carpet with vinyl wood planking. There was no lino under the carpet.

No linoleum under carpet. We order additional original tile from Tiara RV. When tile arrived it was very close to same color as in trailer. Had a slight more red tint. I know but I doubt anyone else would notice.

With carpet removed, floated out the wood floor with a self leveling product. After it dried, then applied adhesive. This adhesive took about 15 minutes before It was ready for tile. When adhesive turned to a certain color ( I think it turned blue) it was ready for tile.

We love the no carpet in living area. Kept the carpet in the slide area under the recliners.

Look at Shane Wood's post just before, he has three photos, and I believe there's no carpet anywhere in the living area, including the slides.

Shane When you pulled the carpet out from under your couch and slide chairs was there a foil barrier that was between flooring and carpet... maybe stapled or glued to the base floor...Also I noticed you recovered the steps. Our top step has fallen almost all the way through. When I look at it from the basement it looks like the step butts up to an aluminum frame but can't see how it is attached to the frame ???

Shane, that looks great. Do you think it added weight to your unit?
Also, was it hard to get the carpet and linoleum out from under the slides?
How did you do it?
Jim

On my FB that step didn't appear to be attached to that stud, just sort of hung there, I added supports under the step frame & attached them to those aluminum studs, not a lot of room to work though.

Danny did you repair the step from inside the cabin by removing trim or did you do it from the basement

There was foil under the carpet in the slide. There was none under the carpet anywhere else. It was not glued down

I think the weight was a trade off to the carpet and Lino removed. used a Lino Knife and pliers to remove the carpet under the slides

What did you use for bracing metal or wood and what did you use to attach to aluminum bracket

Shane, I showed your pictures to the flooring guy who is going to do our floors.
He was curious about how you did the transition strip between the door side slide and floor.
Can you tell me what you used and how you secured it to the slide?
Jim

I had a 14' piece of oak cut. I notched it so it sits on the floor and it is screwed and glued to the slide floor. I also installed a felt strip under it on the main floor so it doesn't scratch the tile
