Covering over vinly floor

If your able to cut the carpet accurately just lay over top of the vinyl. There is non slip material sold at most rug stores you can put under it top protect the vinyl and it stops the carpet from moving.

Cheers
Doug

We just use carpets from Walmart 2'x5' and 2'x3'. Don't have to pack a vacuum. Just lift them out and give them a shake.

On our very first camping trip, very first morning, brother-in-law was heating maple syrup and butter on the stove. Did not have the handle turned to the wall, out of the way. Next thing you know about a cup of scalding sugar and oil were scattered all over the cabinets, the cushions, the floor, and the rug. He apologized profusely and did the best he could to clean up. When we got home we wiped down the cabinets, floor, and my ultraleather cushions, hosed down the indoor outdoor rug and now everything is good as new.

Moral of the story... get a rug that you can take outside and wash out!
