In this RV renovation video, we begin ripping out the 27-year-old carpet in our class c RV. Once all the carpet is removed, we’ll be installing a floor made from reclaimed heat-treated pallet wood.
As you may be able to tell, we have very little hands on experience when it comes to construction or renovation. Our goal with this renovation is not only to create a super awesome off grid RV but to gain practical knowledge as we dive into each project.
Make sure you you have a pair of needle nose pliers handy for this project. Not only do they help with gripping the carpet edges for cutting purposes but they are awesome for removing the staples and tacks that hold the carpeting down!
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 guys can do this! Good luck and happy renovating!
