Replacing carpet with vinyl flooring in Montana 5er

I know we're getting ahead of ourselves, but we definitely have "replace the carpet" on our to-do list. I'm reading a lot of good stuff about the Aurora vinyl planking and we are thinking of going with that.

Have any of you tackled this project? I'm pretty sure that our Montana with its through the frame slide-outs has sliders, not rollers.

Did you have to jack the slide up to get the vinyl flooring installed, or could you partially open the slide-out and get the carpet out and the vinyl flooring onto the main floor that way? I was also debating whether to replace the carpet in the slide-out with carpet again or if there were any significant issues in putting the vinyl planking in the slide-out too.

Thank you.

I have installed the strip floor, material from Home Depot. I have a 2006 3400RL. The two slides (desk & dining table) drop even with the rest of the floor. I raised the carpeting 'flap' that covers the gap. Installed right to the edge where the slide meets the floor. I did not remove the carpeting in the slide. I adjusted the kitchen slide, lowered the outside wall side which allowed for the slide to raise enough to place the flooring behind the island. I had to slide the individual strips under the slide as the slide does not rise much at all.

We also didn't remove the carpet in the slide. We installed commercial grade vinyl tile right up to the edge of the slide. 5 years of full timing after that and still in great shape when we traded it in.

I replaced the crappy carpet in the living room with “Lifeproof” plank flooring and it is free floating except I put a couple screws in the outside plank on each side to prevent movement. Looks great and so far zero problems. Haven’t done anything to the carpet on slides yet.
