Describing how to install carpet, which is complicated to start off, isn't the same as watching and learning.

We can describe how, but actually seeing it done is going to reenforce what we type here.

Tackstrip placement, cushion placement and trimming next to the tackstrip, all add to the final results.

Stretching is going to be your biggest challenge. Mobile homes have week walls that can be damaged with the tail of a power/pole stretcher. A "deadman" is suggested for stretching off of.
