Our 8280WS was ordered with minimum carpet, but I removed the carpet apron in front of the slide. You'd have to get on your hands and knees to see were the staples were.

I kept two pieces of the carpet I removed to put down on the lino at each end of the slide before bringing it in.

Well, the process has started. Dulled my carpet knife, so now off to Lowes for replacement blades. Lots of staples to remove from the super thick 3/8" foam rubber pad. (What a joke) TOWTA is starting to smile.

OldCoot you plan to remove all the carpet even on the slide? If so I would love to see the pictures of this project. How will you cover the seam where the slide joins the floor? We have been looking this project over but were unsure of how it would work out.

Not planning on removing the slide carpet, but I have toyed with the idea of adding underlayment and hardwood laminate and just rabbit out a custom made threshold on the back side and taper the front side. We'll see how this turns out when we get the carpet out.

Finished, finally. Not an easy job, but TOWTA is HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY, so all is well. We'll see how long it is before she wants laminate flooring put down.
