A length or runner of carpet is provided for an entrance to vehicular quarters such as a recreational vehicle. The carpet is fixed to a spindle which is carried in a housing secured to the vehicle adjacent a vehicle entrance. When the vehicle is at a desired site, the carpet is unwound and laid out over the ground in front of the entrance. A hand crank is employed to rotate the spindle for rewinding the carpet. An electric or spring motor may be optionally used to rewind the carpet. When used in conjunction with vehicular quarters having a folding stair frame, the housing is mounted to stair support rails.
