2003 Classic carpet

We just purchased a beautiful 30' Classic that has a plush carpet with a muted strip, very plush and looks as though it has never been walked on. BUT..... the carpet is flush to the door, so there is no "landing" space provided for dirty, wet, shoes on entering. My question is: was this carpet factory installed or added later. ??? All photos I have seen of AS's there is always some tiled area on entry. Appreciate any thoughts on this. Arlene

Hi Arlene, and welcome to the forum!
My 1995 also is wall to wall carpet!

Your year had the same thing. It's a "Classic" thing!

Some newer had a little semi circle cutout with linoleum by the door.
You could cut out a section by the door, some folks have and it's not that hard to do.
A search of the forum should have some fotos of the different floor options members have tried.

Of course the newer models have done away with all the carpet.

But what we here really like is FOTOS!
So fire up the digi and let's see it!

We just sold our '03 22' International and it was fully carpeted from the factory. The previous owner had one of those "Airstream" door mats on the inside so we just kept using it. We also bought a cheap runner in almost the exact same color as the carpet to put down in the high traffic area. This kept the carpet looking like new.

Neither of the two I've owned had the "landing strip". I guess folks could have ordered it either way.

Thanks for the comments on this. We have been fighting SAND for years and for some reason never thought of putting in an approach. Thanks to you I intend to cut out a piece of the carpet and install tile for the "stomp off area". I wish the older, we have a Classic 1976 Soverign, had a bigger "porch" as ours has only two little steps. Joan from the Pacific Beach
