In the third and final carpet video, we finally finish ripping out all of the old carpet! BUT, right at the end we find an unwelcome surprise… MORE WATER DAMAGE!
We remove massive bolts holding in the passenger chair, which allows us to remove the carpet in the cab area.
While removing the last “10,000” carpet tacks and staples, we discover a gnarly looking bug. BONUS POINTS for anyone who can tell us what kind of insect we’ve come across! Comment below…
On the next episode we start some serious demolition. We dig into the water damaged spots on the walls, ceiling and over cab… and of course we find mold. Stay tuned!
When at first you don’t succeed: Pull, pull again 🙂
A few reasons why removing carpet in an RV is more difficult than removing carpet in a house:
1. RV manufacturers install the carpet in the rig FIRST and then install appliances, fixtures, drawers, cabinets, etc. ON TOP of the carpet. This means you have to either remove every appliance that’s screwed in and glued to the walls and floor or do what we did – use a carpet/utility knife to cut around the cabinets and appliances to get the carpet out.
2. Glue, tacks, and staples are used to fasten the carpet to the plywood subfloor.
3. You’re doing all of this in an extremely small space.
You can do this! Good luck and happy renovating!
