It was pretty simple to replace the carpet on our main slide.
Though it would have been much easier dealing with a competant sales person, instead of the putz we got stuck with.
The owner of the flooring company was very professional, but her sales gal was a dipstick. Clueless. Careless. Screwed up the order. Then tried to overcharge us and didn't even apologize after I pointed out her mistake. (The unemployment rate in El Centro is 25%, yet this woman still has a job ?? !!)
Despite the hassle/overbilling/confusion, our new carpet is finally in and it looks skookum.
It fit the slide perfectly, but My Fella put in six small nails to secure it to the floor.
We considered finishing the edges with quarter round, but decided against it. The carpet is really snug against the wall and looks like it came with the RV.
testing the new carpet or snoozing on the job ???
living room slide - before and after
By bringing the old RV carpet to the flooring place, we made sure they had the exact measurements and layout for the new piece we ordered. Right down to where the cut-outs are and what side needed binding.
Most carpet rolls come in standard 12' length, but because our RV slide is 12'7", we had to pay for an extra foot of carpet and also the cost of getting it seamed. And we needed to bind the front edge so it looked finished.
Total charges, including binding, cutting, seams and taxes: $252 USD. And one more thing crossed off the reno list.
