Yes, it looks awesome! And we'd like to know where ya got the carpet edge/bound as well. We've already done the Curtains & Coucho, due to the previous owner being a HEAVY smoker.
:sigh:

For the carpet, I went to my local carpet place in Burlington, WA (Flooring Outlet). Thankfully, they had someone who could do binding on site. Total price was just over $600. But based on the shape of the floor, I also probably have enough carpet left over to do it again when this wears out or make some matching runners for the high wear areas.

Upholstery I did locally at an upholsterer in Anacortes, WA (Classic Upholstery & Foam). Got a really good deal on foam (the most expensive part). I bought Sunbrella fabric off e-Bay once I was told how much I would need. Foam, fabric and labor was $1200.

Thanks for the pricing and details!

Our Caravel doesn't need carpet or upholstery, but if we ever get started on another project AS, which we'd like to attempt someday, I would need to have this kind of work done. Honestly, I never imagined having a carpeted trailer, figured it would be hardwood/laminate flooring, but it's just so cozy in our Caravel; which is why I love your solution.

We have a lil 1-man "shade tree" upholstery guy who works out of the front room of his house. He's upholstered EVERYTHING we've own or hung in the windows for the past 2 decades. I tell ya he's worth his weight in Gummy Bears!!
As for the flooring, we threw down VERY cheap H/D carpet. We want to install this great (hard wood) looking linoleum that was used in the offices of my last job (of 22yrs), before I retired. But we need to do some major floor repairs before we invest in that stuff.

My original intention was a heavy weight vinyl flooring. Something with a wood print. Pretty heavy duty stuff. But after camping in it with bare floors and seeing the warmth carpets added to my dad's trailer, I had to have carpet.

Nice looking AS, I am in the process of making some changes to my Safari as well. Will post some pictures later as work progresses. And extend my welcome to a fellow Washington resident. Let us know where you are planning to take your trip, and of course continue with the pictures of the progress, as well as any trip photos you take.

I also very much like the idea of cut and edge bound carpet. I was debating what to do with the light colored entry way carpet. As you step into the trailer, the first place you would take the first couple of steps--nearly white carpet. Who puts down white carpet to go camping?!@#?!

Well, my dad laid down kind o a cream-colored carped... and it looks incredible with the lighter wood in his late 60's Safari.

I have kids, though... So I went darker to hide the inevitable. We are camping in it regularly, so pine needles and dirt find there way in. Also seems to match the fabric we picked and the darker, early 70's 'wood'. It a 70's trailer. No matter how much we tried to make it look like something else, there's no denying its roots. We just decided to go with it.
