I hate the carpet

I don't like the carpet in 0ur AS. In our old Avion, the carpet was not secured. We rolled it up and found brand new linoleum the length of the trailer. The carpet in the AS is secured in the living area and the bedroom....does this mean the linoleum that is down the hall and in the kitchen area will probably not be hiding under the exsisting carpet? How do we get matching linoleum...from the AS factory? We have a 2011 34' classic.

In mine, the partial vinyl floor only extended about 6" under the carpet. Beyond that, there was just the pad and plywood floor.

I replaced the lounge carpet with a 8x10 carpet from Lowes. This entailed temporarily removing the couch, credenza and chair garage that are on top of the old carpet. In the bedroom, I cut away the old carpet and replaced that with carpet squares.

I'm a big proponent of carpet squares. Easy to cut and fit in the confines of the trailer. Make a bad cut and just use that square elsewhere. My squares came from FLOR.

Just wanted to confirm carpet is laid over tack strips and under furniture over bare sub-floor at factory.. No linoleum or vinyl under it..

Easy enough to cut and remove carpeting, remove tack strips, and then either put down linoleum or hardwood/composite flooring over subfloor.. May require some sealer finish to completely level sub-floor if you are going with linoleum..

There were no tack strips in my trailer. The carpet was securely stapled to the floor along the walls. The only molding was where the carpet overlapped the vinyl in the galley.

Did you guys also remove the converter box? I'm thinking of just cutting the carpet around the box. Too many wires to disconnect.

No need to remove the converter box, the carpet slides out from under it.

UGH, I hate our carpet too. Problem solved (sort of) because we found a water leak last Saturday while at a Pig Roast in NC.
We'd had 7" of rain over 3 days before we left.

Luckily, we've caught it early and the carpet is gone in the lounge....the wood subfloor is drying and the vinyl in the galley of acceptable (I don't love it but we're not ripping it up).

So now, we've got to find the water leak. The water damage was only on the curb side, on the floor, front corner. Husband says it could be coming down the wall between the inside and outside. We just had a quick rain, so he's gone over to the storage lot to check it out.

Our plan is to find an acceptable vinyl to put on the floor, but not until we know we've found/fixed the leak.
