Question Carpet removal

The carpet in my new-to-me 1995 Solaris is showing its age. It appears there is linoleum under the carpet throughout the trailer. Correct?
How is the carpet attached? Can it be removed w/o damaging the tile floor? Anyone done this?

Sunline Fan is an unknown quantity at this point
The carpet is stapled down underneath everything. It was put down when it was a bare flatbed trailer. So you'll have to cut at the edge of the walls and cabinets.

There's also a ton of staples in it, so you'd have a large amount of staple holes, like by the area just inside the door where it transitions from that small piece of linoleum to carpet. You also have two pieces of flooring in the trailer, most likely one in the front in the kitchen area over top of the main piece, and that should extend probably back to just past the bathroom.

So the answer is yes, you could take up the carpet, but you would probably have to put a few random edge strips in to cover the staple holes and the linoleum seam probably in the bedroom.

There is linoleum under the wardrobe closet. I opened the bin under the closet and saw the tile so the carpet isn't under there. I'll look elsewhere.

Now the staple holes are another issue -
