    Hi Jackie
    There was a thread on here some time ago concerning carpet fiiting in a m/h - r/v. Somebody had highly reccomended a company or an individual. I cant for the life of me think were the post was but it may not have started off with talking about carpet fitting.

    If you search way back through all of the posts (long job) you willl find it.

    If this post gets bumped up somebody else may see it and be able to help. Try another post with the subject description being rv-mh carpeting as som people only read the subjet line.
    Best of Luck Jim :Smile:

    Searching carpet in RV forum last thread has a couple of interesting posts from Geo on this.
    Sounds like leave (cut round with stanley) sofa and dinnette but front seats will be easily removable, ours are just 4 bolts, and persivere looking for a fitter.

    We fitted our own new carpet, OK for us but if I needed to do it again with a newer RV I'd go pro, I never was much of a carpet fitter!

    Hi Si
    The problem with this one is that it has a slide which makes it so much more difficult.

    Kustom Sport Ltd, Barnsley, Tel 01226 203347 did a fantastic job on mine at a reasonable price. Plenty of choice of carpets, ordinary and rubber backed. They specialize in motorhomes, vans and cars.

    I know it's a long way but you can stay overnight in their yard with a free hookup and they'll even organize bacon buttties in the morning!

    Thank you all for your replies.
    Have managed to contact coach and car trimmers and they will come and have a l ook, not really hopeful.
    Is there anybody who has recarpeted a bus with a slideout?
