Ditto!

I tore out all the exposed carpeting in ours and replaced with "engineered"'snap together flooring for $1.50/ SFT... My labor is "free" and I had tools and knowledge to use.. Somewhat safely. Took a day to rip out carpet and trim cleanly against cabinetry. It took about a day and a half for flooring and trim completion. 3 years, no problems.

We DID get the flooring with "foam pad"'already in place..This keeps the floor quiet and a little warmer.

Others have used cork, Marmoleum, etc. sheet vinyl sounds good but can trap moisture...bad idea.

Jackson Center is the manufacturing hub for Airstream which is located in Ohio. Sometimes referred to as the "Mothership", they provide repair services as well.

Question, do you like the color? Maybe you can tone it down using throw rugs.

Here is a blog from a Sterling owner that has a different color Sterling carpet that is different from the pink and yellow.
Peek Inside - June Bug Journeys

If JC does it figure it will be in the shop all day, $125/hour so that's a $1000 in labor and then the cost of the materials. I'm guessing $1500-$1800 total cost. I'm assuming they will take up the bed frame and rear living dinette and side couch.

How has the carpet stood up to wear and tear and the changes in temperatures between winter and summer? Any buckling?

carpet

We got a really good deal on a Sterling with the purple/pink flooring. We really liked the cabinets, and everything else about the trailer. The flooring was a poor choice by Airstream. Did as KJ suggested. A few rugs down the main walkway, and you hardly notice the flooring. Now that we've had it for a year, the color has kind of grown on us. It's definitely different.

I've seen posts here before that people said they were quoted around $4K. I'd agree with KJRitchie that they will probably pull up the bed & dinette/lounge before replacing. They come out fairly easily. Let us know what you find out. We have the purple floor too and while we don't hate the color that much we HATE cleaning it. It collects dirt like a sponge and it's very hard to get it out.

Last February we had a minor flood in our AS (the XYL didn't secure the faucet in the bathroom). On the way home I stopped at JC for service and had them replace the carpet that runs from the kitchen to the back. Service told me to find a remnant at Lowes, which we did, and it took them about an hour to rip up the old carpet (including the matching panel in the bathroom under the shower) and replace it with the new carpet. We're pleased with the outcome - looks really good.

Can the carpet be dyed professionally with a color your wife would prefer?
