Pulling Up Carpet in Bedroom

We have a 2008 safari 25ft FB and hate the carpet and want to pull it up and replace with vinyl flooring or something else. A couple of questions:
How is the carpet laid
should we pull out the bed etc to do it.
Thanks

In our 2007 FB Classic, I just cut the carpet around the bed. I don't remember if it had tack strips around the wall. I think it did and I just pulled it out. I replaced the carpet with vinyl plank flooring and carefully cut it around curve areas. The plank flooring had a matching transition strip to handle the different thicknesses of the plank and vinyl flooring at the hallway. We really like the look and don't miss having to vacuum the carpet. I did the same thing under the dining table. In that case, I also had to remove the seats to repair some of the sub-flooring due to a water leak.

Typical factory installation is all the flooring is laid then cabinets and beds are set on top of flooring. You can just cut is away and lay the new floor up to the bed and cabinets.

Only other choice is to remove everything first and tear up all carpeting. Beds and closets come out easy. Kitchen and baths are a whole different animal and you don't want to go there if it can be avoided.

The same thing I did.
