We removed the carpets from our van when it was new. The wood look vinyl underneath looks great, but it's not as comfy to walk on. It's easy to keep clean if grass gets brought in on your shoes but as autumn approaches a warmer floor would be nice
What floor covering do you have in your MH?

im a not so newbie
If you fit vinyl why would you take your shoes off, surely shoes on until you go to bed

Or fit carpet/leave and shoes off at the door

Or am i missing something :D

Bear in mind we don't own a MH yet :)

Problem comes when you come in through the door, its a step, so hardly any room to remove or store shoes before stepping on the internal floor surface.
We have one of those rubber edged carpet mats that can go in the washing machine, right by the door. Catches most of the dirt, so I'm hoping that if we re fit the carpets, they will keep pretty clean.

It doesn't matter what the floor is made of, outdoor shoes will bring in grit, mud, grass and other less mentionables, such as squashed slugs etc.
Carpets are quiet, warm and soft to walk on when you get up at night to check the loo is still working. The downside is you need to be disciplined about taking your shoes off before coming inside. But there are entire civilisations out there who have learned this trick!
