You may not know that when they build a motorhome, the very first thing they do is the floor. So the carpet goes underneath all the cabinets, seats, and walls...even the fresh water holding tank sits on the carpet! When you go to replace it, the only option is to cut it out around those existing fixtures.
Before. Actually, it doesn't look toooo bad in the picture, but trust me, it was nasty.
Cutting out the old one was hard on the hand, even with new blades in the carpet knife. And, you have to take your time because you want to use the old carpet as a template to cut the new one.
Ready for the new carpet
Both carpets upside down, using the old one as a template to cut out the new one.
With a little bit of trimming, we're very happy with the new carpet!
Next job is the fake hardwood floor. But we have to make our way down to Fitzroy Provincial Park about 12 kms (8 miles) from here to use their dump station because I need to remove the toilet in order to do the job so I want the tanks empty and clean.
Oh, and there is a Canadian Tire store on our way towards the border that will do Sherman's emission test for $39.95. That's less than half of GM dealer in Arnprior, who wanted $100 to do the same job! So we'll get that done September 6 on our way out and it won't even cost any extra gas because we would have driven right by the place anyhow.
