  1. This carpet looks tan, but the original color was silver/gray. Mr. Sunshine has done a number on it over the years. The linoleum is just darn ugly. More details here: http://www.smittysrv.com/thisnewoldrv/blog.asp?ID=2142 This is the exposed base that was under the dinette and couch. I installed just enough vinyl to give the slider one final test. Since I was unable to remove all the carpet under the slider, it now transitions from the edge of the vinyl onto what's left of the old carpet. I put whatever I could find laying around on top of the slider floor to add some weight as a test. I also sprayed painted the exposed carpet with some flat black paint to make less visible. Check out this little video I made: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYa_9BekuJM
  2. The tear-out took several days. Tons of staples in the old carpet. Just about every vinyl tile had to be custom cut. Check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tk7-Ui7v2vU
  3. I am going to take out a section of carpeting at the entry way to my 5er. I will try to explain what I am doing. As you walk in my 5er there is the kitchen counter that is perpendicular to the entry way. There is carpeting on one side of the counter (dining area) and vinyl flooring on the other side of the counter (kitchen area). I am going to remove the carpet on the one side and cover the entire area with new allure flooring including covering the existing vinyl floor. Basically the allure flooring will make a horseshoe shape around the counter. I really have no desire to try to get the vinyl up because I think it will be almost impossible. My question is when I pull up the carpeting there will be bare floor until I get to where the vinyl is. I am worried about what the allure will do when I lay it over where the vinyl starts. Will the allure cover the seam well enough or will there be a 'line' visible through the allure?? Thanks, Steve
