Default Replacing Rialta Carpeting with other flooring

We have a 2005 Winnebago Rialta and would like to replace the carpeting with a different kind of flooring, not carpet. We live in NW Colorado and would appreciate hearing from any Rialta owners who have done this and know where we can go to have someone do the work for us. Thank you!

We pondered this come for our 2004 Rialta. The biggest problem is that the carpet runs UNDER everything else. What we finally did was to have a carpet cleaner do a really good job of making the carpets like new. Then after a thorough drying period in summer heat we bought the clear office mats they have for running under office chairs (about $30 each) and cut them to exactly fit each area. Worked perfectly.

Thank you. We’ve had the carpets cleaned by a carpet cleaner before, are really wanting to change the look.

I replaced my carpets with cork flooring by myself. I have lots of photos of what was involved. Check under photos for my album for my 2004 HD. The floor has ridges that need to be filled with luan boards (thin wood) so the floor is smooth and level. To replace with new carpet, check with carpet installers.

go to the Rialta io groups and search for flooring. Many people have replaced the carpeting with laminate, vinyl plank or cork type of flooring.

I used the plastic office mat solution also for the storage space under the bed. Works great.

We live in Steamboat Springs and had our carpet replaced at a flooring store. If you live close to Steamboat I would be glad to show you the install.
