Once you have a plan for your RV renovation, the next step is putting it into place. When it comes to renovating, there is a lot of demolition and removal that needs to happen before anything new can be brought in.
The bulk of the carpet came up surprisingly easy. We had been warned by others that there would be hundreds of staples. At first, it seemed there would not be too many. And we definitely had many that came up with the carpet.
The most important tools we used for carpet removal were razor knives and wonder bars. And a lot of elbow grease. Spending so much time on hands and knees, knee pads proved to be a saving grace, as well as a weight belt which supported my back.
Once the carpet was out, we tackled the tile. I had originally envisioned breaking them out with a pry bar. It only took a few tiles before I got frustrated with the time and effort involved. So I just started smashing them with a hammer.
