i have an Elddis autoquest155 . The carpets have "dried out" and every time we lift them to take them out to hoover them ( or dyson them ) there is a lot of dust from the backing left on the floor. Where can I get replacements that don't cost the earth or is there something I can do to them to stop this?TIA

Sorry I can't help but I understand the problem. I had mine replaced by a company down here, Yorkshire, for £400-ish, carpets look better but my bank account looks worse :whistle:

There are a few options if you Google "motorhome replacement carpets" but don't expect it to be cheap. You could try an Eldiss dealer to see if a replacement set is available as a spare part.

Some one on here posted how they had a replacement set made recently by someone local to them and were excellent value. You could try searching in the posts for it and sorry I cannot remember who posted the thread.

Find a local carpet fitter! Chose a carpet u like.
He should be able to cut to fit and get the edges bound

More than toes wet now!
Two options.
Either "coat" the back of the carpet (assuming not foam backed) with latex adhesive (Copydex is probably the best known brand name but much cheaper options are available)
or using the original carpets as a template buy a suitable remnant from your local carpet shop, cut out new carpets and have these edge bound. Remember, if original carpets are held in place by pop studs you might need to fit these as well.

As a third alternative we bought and fitted carpet tiles which gives a "fully fitted" finish but it's a lot of intricate work!

I removed our fitted carpets, and have washable non slip mats instead. Easier to wash, shake out and cheap. :)

I went to carpetright bought a good quality remnant, then used the old carpet as a template.
I then took the carpets to be bound. Cost £10 for the carpet nd £25 to have them bound

The man who fitted my satellite dish on an industrial estate told me of a local company that fitted carpets to coaches. Apparently, they lie flat and don't curl up at the edges. I handed over my existing carpets and he used that as a template to make the new ones.

When my wife decided she would like a change of colour we trotted off to our local carpet shop and had no luck at all finding carpet that would do the job. Seems coach quality is the specification that is needed.
