Removing the old floor and putting in vinyl

Recommended Posts

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: 


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:

Thanks for sharing your experience.  A question about the slide, please...

How many rollers are there and do you notice any markings  or abrasions on the floor due to the slide movement?  Have you done anything to keep the rollers extra clean and free of rocks or dirt?  Thanks again!
