Wow...looks like you are making some good progress! Hopefully you'll be back to camping in it soon...we missed you this year at the RM VAC Rally ~

Is that cork flooring? Could you please add a picture of the flooring showing the face of it close up?
Thanks

Fantastic!

What type of silver paint did you use? It all looks great - I can imagine the birch or maple in there too!

FYI : I have found HEAVY METAL course (red) to be a superior compounding material than the others for quickly cutting moderate oxidation to a good shine with minimal swirling. A follow-up with their medium (green) brings up a very exceptable shine than can be easy Cyclo'd to a mirror finish.
As some of you may know, Uwe and I have started a small refurbishing sideline business called TRAILERWORX , mainly servicing So. Cal. and we are now Heavy Metal dealers for anyone who needs material. PM either one of us if you need some.

I wish you both well in your indevors - if you are anything like others whom I've known to do the same thing, you will be VERY busy.

Uwe - does that cork fllooring come in snap together panels similar to pergo? One of your pictures with some holding a section makes it look like it does.

Really like the look of your interior

Ken;
I'll answer that, as Uwe is in Memphis at a music trade show. Yes the flooring is what is known as 'click-down' which gives you really nice tight joints. It turned out really nice - the photos don't really do it justice as the color is richer.

This is where we ordered it, and also the style that we ordered.

This company sends samples for shipping money. We bought 5 or more samples to find what we liked. None of the pictures do it justice.

I bought 7 cartons, with 6 1x3ft pieces each, about 126sq ft total.
Thanks to Murrays excellent layout, it was more than enough. There is better than a half a carton left over.

Weight?

Uwe,
Looks great! Does the cork weigh as much as the Pergo?

No, it is quite a bit lighter. I am estimating 30% at least.

You know, now that it's all laid down, the more time I spend in the trailer, the better I like it!
I am approaching the part of the restoration/refurbishing that I was looking forward to from the beginning.

hi- I'm interested in the cork too, yours does indeed look really good! I see you have laid it down over entire floor, am wondering how all future cabinets/furniture should be attached? Do you just drill/screw right through the cork into the subfloor, or does everything attach only to the walls? Does this also apply to pergo-type flooring? I'm just wondering which way is best: flooring first under everything, or flooring last, fitted up to all cabinets and built-ins. I'll search other threads too- thanks- tim

Hey Tim,

I am going to build the interior to attach to the walls, but lightly anchor everything to the floor as well. Right through the cork. In areas where tere might be concern for movement, I will notch the cork flooring just enough to where a leg or brace can reach the wooden subfloor.
It is much easier and cleaner to lay the flooring complete, than cut around all the corners and trim up the transitions.
I had Pergo in my previous trailer, and it was a bear to make it look right.
This way the flooring goes right underneath everything, and even when you open a cabinet door, there will be finished flooring underneath it. The cork is also an excellent noise suppressor and insulating material, which was another reason I went everywhere with it.
The only places that I did not lay the flooring is under the shower tub and under the air conditioner. ( My a/c lives under the bed)
