How much of your RV’s floor is covered with wall-to-wall carpet?

Older RVs used to have more carpeting than newer models. Carpeting can be a real drag for those of you who are outdoorsy, spend time in lots of muddy and wet places, or have pets. Oh, the damage muddy paws can do…

How much of your current RV’s floor is covered with wall-to-wall carpet? All or most of it? Just a little bit of it (maybe just the “living” spaces and bedroom?), or none of it?

If you’re wanting to give your RV a facelift with new carpet or flooring, Russ and Tiña De Maris have written this article for you.

Our RV has carpeting in the slides and the walk-in closet, so well under half. Our next RV (production on it began on 4/13/22) has no carpeting.

My RV has no carpeting at all! Not even on the slides. One of the reasons we went with the manufacturer we did.

I took all the carpeting out of the bedroom and living room then installed laminate flooring. After about 9 years I removed the laminate flooring in the living room and installed ceramic tile. Getting rid of the carpet was the best thing I ever did. The second best thing I ever did was remove the laminate flooring in the living room. I think everyone knows what happens to laminate when your dogs miss the pee pad!!!

Just in the slide where the sofa and dinette were. Thought about removing it but the dogs like to lay on it.

None, just a matt at the door to wipe the outdoors off your shoes. Wife always says take your shoes off, nope in and out too much. It’s the womens job to sweep once in awhile.

Got rid of all the carpet except in our bedroom which we replaced with a much nicer carpet. The rest is plank flooring which we love. Soooooo much better and easier to keep clean.

About 80% when built
Now none!
Ripped out dirt catching carpet . Underneath was vinyl mucb easier to keep clean. Oh there are a few very tiny hole from when they installed carpet but beat them down with hammer and you can hardly see them.

We don’t have any carpeting any where in our motorhome and like it that way. It is so much easier to keep all the flooring clean by just sweeping and occasional mopping. We use small area rugs in the bedroom, bathroom and kitchen that can just be shaken daily and machine washed when needed.

The small kitchen area and the bathroom do not have carpet. It is unfortunately everywhere else. Under the table, who puts carpet under the table? That area has to be cleaned after nearly every meal!

You need a dog.

Only under the slide. Finally bought one with almost no carpet. Sure helps when traveling with three hound dogs!

The questions needs to be more specific. It says RV. That’s a very general description since the term RV includes motor homes, travel trailers, pop-ups and class B vans.

We like the carpeting around our bed. Putting warm feet down on cold flooring is not our thing. We also have carpeting under our dinette. Again, good for warm feet in the morning. In fact, this past year we paid the ‘big bucks’ to have the carpeting replaced with high-end product. Cozy stuff.
Oh, and there’s no worry about kids spilling food on our floors. No kids or grandkids to do that.
