I have NO idea who thought that it was a good idea to put carpet in a camper. Why? Campers are used for camping…where there is dirt and mud and no one wants to vacuum on vacation. Our camper just had carpet on our slide out, thankfully. The rest of the flooring is nondescript vinyl tiles. At Lowes, I found some vinyl “wood”. The flooring looks like hardwood floors but is just peel n stick strips. I was able to do the majority of the camper in Texas before we moved, but stopped near the carpet. Now that Hubby is gone during the week for training, and I am stuck at home with no car, I finally have time for this project. I ripped out the carpeting and was disgusted with the amount of dirt and dust under it. One corner of the slide out will need to be replaced as its still damp from a leak. After pulling the carpet and all the millions of carpet staples, I put down the new flooring. Its not done, but already it looks so much better.
