I have a V-Lite also and was going to remove the carpet, but found that all of the carpet is glued to the floor all over the rv. I have linoleum in the kitchen area and front door area but with a stapled joining strip like they would use in homes. For right now I have changed my mind, to much of a project till it gets cooler and if we keep the V-Lite. I don't know about yours but mine leakes up in the front point area and am constantly trying to seal it. This is the first and last V-Lite I will own, what a piece of junk.
