I recently got a quote to replace the main cabin carpet in my rig. The amount $2,000!!! Bedroom not included! I did most of my house for less than that.
Here is the problem, no place to install the carpet myself, our driveway is 12ft too short and our police department loves to issue tickets for parking in the street so I was hoping to find a local person/company to do it.
RV dealers want to charge $1,500 to $1,600 in labor.. I know with the slide it's harder to do but I can't believe it takes 14 to 16 hours for just the main cabin?
Here is the layout, how much have you guys paid to get yours done? I know there are plenty of places in Florida, California and Indiana but there doesn't seem to be anything near Rockford, IL that is reasonable.

Not much help here, is there no way to get it into your back yard ?? It is easy to do yourself, pull the old carpet out, use it as a template, cut the new a little bit larger, put it down, trim the excess, done deal......Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

I have a 32' Southwind with one slide......I redid my carpet with a high end carpet, plus for the main cabin had solid oak hardwood installed...cost was $3250.....it took their experienced installer close to 4 days to do. They did a great job and I offered to recommend them to others...the manager said they don't want to do any more motorhomes at any price!!
If it is a civil ticket that they issue you, it may be worth just taking the hit on the ticket. That way it is not "illegal" and won't go on your insurance. If it is criminal law, probably best to either figure out a way to do it yourself, or unfortunately cough up the bucks.
4 whopping cylinders on Toyota RV's. Talk about great getting good MPG. Also I have a very light foot on the pedal. I followed some MPG advice on Livingpress.com and I now get 22 MPG! Not bad for a home on wheels.
Just did the entire RV for less than $100!!!!. Lowes has carpet on rolls for just $3-10 a lineal foot. Easy to cut and rubber backed so it does move. Sure glad I can do things for myself and check around first.
