What did you use to adhere the carpet to the doghouse? Any suggestions on the best way to cut the carpet to form around the doghouse?


Getting ready to pull the captan's chairs for reupholster and was planning on redoing the front carpet at the same time. Seems like getting the doghouse covered nicely is the hardest part.

Dog House Help

It was a very hard project to accomplish. I have a youTube channel where I post some of the DIY projects of the Airstream Motorhome, it's called Dark Nest Travels, you're always welcome to subscribe. The hardest part was getting a salvageable template for the upholstery. But I pulled it off the best I could, lol. Here's the link for the Dog House video, I hope that it helps you get an idea of the work involved. It was the most difficult part. I used an upholstery that typically goes in the ceilings, top grade that I was able to get free from a sister who works in the place. The scrap pieces worked excellently. Here's the link again: https://youtu.be/rj9A3pFteSM , thanks so much for reaching out. I'll talk to you soon. Comments on the video are appreciated, as well as new subscriber's, this is our fourth Airstream, but our first Airstream Class A, and I look forward to posting future projects as well as projects done on our last Airstream, a 1964 Globetrotter, 19'. Sorry for the delay in getting back I don't visit here as frequently as I should anymore. Talk to you soon.

I failed to mention, that the video don't have the gluing process, the glue was so good that it's a fast process and I didn't have anyone to video record it, lol. I hope that video gives you some comfort in the tedious project, good luck!
