Too late Derek!

So the house flooring is almost done...
What is interesting and I felt worth posting here is what it is..
This flooring is Vinyl plank, and is a recent innovation.
Its made by Metroflor, and is called Engage.

Not the thin self stick stuff, its thick, waterproof and needs no underlay.
It also seems to be warmer to the touch than the laminate was.
It wont absorb water, and so I am considering it for the MH.
Only down side is it is dense, and therefore, heavy.. I weighed one of the cartons with 10 planks(24sqft) and it was 47lb!

Ignore the disarray, and dust... this is how it looks...


ENGAGE BRINGS IT ALL HOME - Residential

Thanks for the info! Just ordered some samples. I have been getting mixed messages of what to put down. I have been told that you can't do laminates in a MoHo/trailer and the vinyl don't look to great, I am a bit concerned with the wieght. Will need to see what the additional weight will be.

Thats why I posted it.
We got the Burned Hickory, as it matched our furniture.
The stuff is pretty amazing to look at, looks like aged wood, with saw marks, shakes and nail holes etc. You would never know! There must be several variations of plank, as it looks totally random.
The weight is the only concern. Derak and I agreed its about 90/100sqft if you did from cockpit back. I was thinking only from the entrace door to the bedroom, as I like to have carpet in the bedroom and living area.

Marmoleum is what I am putting in my moho. The carpet was so disgusting. I am leaving carpeting in the driver/passenger/doghouse area but it will be automotive type not shag......the bathroom carpeting was too terrible to talk about. I want to use throw rugs that I can take out and wash......just need to fix a place to hold down the dog when traveling.....haven't figured that out yet. paula

PS: Marmoleum is a linseed based non gassing product or so I have been told.

We do the same. Most R.V. parks cannot handle rugs, so we hit a commercial laundry and air dry them, if possible.

Unfortunately DH isn't a marmoleum type of girl . I love it. SO you can guess what we are going to get.... Actually if I was single the only thing I would change is the oil!

Nice crisp lines, looks good. Is this the room you first go in after a day of polishing ?

Based on my polishing experience, the first room you go to is usually the outside hose by the garage, and hopefully the neighbors aren't looking!

Panda??

Given the silver/gray color of the coating of nuvite and aluminum oxidation that I find myself wearing after a good polishing session, I've always thought the resemblance is closer to the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz.
