    wel welcome to the forums ,, and i have never heard of ready made carpet ,, i have done alot of remodels ,, and most of the carpet is one piece ,, front to rear ,, with a few sections pieced in ,, but what u are typing about is easy ,, just take out the seats ,, and do as u would in a house ,, carpet the entire area ,, and then cut out for the motor cover ,, and use that piece ontop of it(if it (if it is used as an access to the top of the motor ,from inside ) ,, :approve: :approve: :approve:

    I also need to replace the carpet in trhe front of my rig, but have also never heard of ready made peices I planed on just going to a carpet store and buying a large enough peice and then putting it down. I just dread doing the dog house above the motor there are some weird angles and I wonder if i could make it fit well enough that it doesnt look too bad.

    Have never heard of 'carpet sets'. You can get remnant carpets almost anywhere fairly cheap and if you are patient and have some basic skill the job is really not hard to do. I have done mine. A lot cheaper than 'hiring' it done



    cheers

    thanks guys. i do a lot of tile and wood floors have been a carpenter all my life but never tried laying carpet .
    I thought i would try to get off the piece over the engine in one bit and copy it, its probably glued down though, i took up the carpet in the rest of the mh and it was stapled around the edges with hundreds of staples!
