Did laminate over the carpeting in our Casita - no problems. The carpet provides a nice layer of insulation.

I wish Casita offered as options the LED lights and a starter Solar kit! Then I really would be able to stay off-grid for a week or more without having to reinvent power!

I can't understand why any manufacturer would not install laminate flooring and LED lighting.
That was a good decision for us.
When completed, you can show a photo before and one later?
One photo is worth one thousand words...

Have a good week-end,

Even if it required a bit of effort to remove the carpet and prep the floor for vinyl, I would go that route. I would not want to leave the carpet in place and cover with vinyl or laminate, as that would trap odours, dirt, mold, moisture, and all forms of creepie crawlies between the two layers.

I approve to 100% Dave.
