A couple of Flor thoughts.

I think that I remember seeing some Flor products at Home Depot a while back. Also note that both Home Depot and Lowes and special order all sorts of things that they do not stock directly in the store. Carpet tiles have actually been around for some time in the commercial sector. I am not sure how the commercial grade carpet tiles are installed though. The Flor variety is perhaps more DIY friendly.

The Flor products that I have seen typically attach to the floor with adhesive tape squares. They supposedly are relatively easy to pull up and replace but they are not just floating on the floor. If a floating floor was important I suppose it would be possible to tape the Flor tiles to each other rather than to the floor.

Question on carpet

Love these posts on ideas for each other. I just got a 25' trailer with carpet in the rear twin area. I want to replace the carpet. I am considering carefully cutting out the walk area and leaving the plastic covered carpet in the trunk areas intact. I am looking at FLOR products. Any ideas on my task? Anyone used FLOR? They actually do float as they are only held in place with sticky disks and held to each other by similar disks. I am considering the style "rake me over" as it is for heavy traffic and is one of their most seamless choices.

I converted my crossways queen to twins and left the carpet under the beds. I used a utility knife and a serrated kitchen knife to cut the carpet away along the bunks.

I replaced the carpet with FLOR squares that look like worn blue jeans. It has worked out well in general. I did have some problem with the disks slipping just a bit, leaving the seams showing. I fixed that by using extra disks in areas where I had problems. I am happy with the result.

Incorrect. The FLOR disks have adhesive only on the top side. I have FLOR squares in my trailer. The FLOR demo shows a multiple square carpet being assembled and them lifted and moved.

Blue Jean sounds neat. I was just not sure if the carpet would slide around and how to go about figuring out what to cut out shy of removing the beds and bunks, etc. Thank you Thank you!

I fitted it up fairly tight to the bed bottoms. Nothing has moved except one seam opened up slightly where I tend to push when getting up out of my bed. I fixed that easily with some extra disks on that seam.

I found that the serrated knife, kept very sharp, would trim any stray threads that were hard to get with the utility knife.
