I realize the intended purpose of the loose carpet edge inboard of the slide floor - to make the transition more home-like, and to hide the inside edge of the slide base. The problem comes in when the carpet is crushed against an island or other object like a wall or whatever. This causes it to be uneven and wrinkled, making somewhat of a trip hazard and not looking particularly attractive!
I contend this should have been addressed in the design/production phase and either made short enough to clear the object (removing the problem), or made another way! I have seen a couple of RVs where the carpet was wrapped around the slide base making a neat transition (possible alternative), or some other method. I guess I just can't understand why they would continue putting this poor design out there for us owners/users to deal with!?! Thanks
