Then we carefully unrolled the sheet and did a little cleaning to make sure there wasn't any little specs of dirt or debris.

Then I troweled on the glue and rolled and rolled and rolled. Did a little clean up and here is how she looks.

That looks really nice. It is going to be wonderful when it is all done.

Thanks Sandy, Perry and DA27.
There isn't really too much left to finish. Just put in the lower curtain tracks, gaucho and credenza. I should have everything all done by tomorrow afternoon. Then it will be time to bring Abby back home and get her packed up for our long summer trip.
Desertair,
There is only about two or three feet on the CS near the door and galley cabinet that I might use some cove moulding if I can find some nice matching gold anodized color. I'll be using a threshold that Soldiermedic gifted me for the transition from the kitchen to the back part of the trailer.

Thanks Tom. It doesn't take lottery winnings to have a nice Marmo floor! Maybe a scratch ticket or two.
This is the second sheet Marmo installation and it is getting easier, but still not what you would call easy. The prep work takes about eight times longer than the installation of the sheet. I was kind of forced into learning how to do Marmo. I'm still learning. Of the four "certified" installers I contacted in February, two would not install in a travel trailer, one was too busy, and the fourth would do the install but he was booked up until July. They conduct training and certification in Dallas, so maybe I'll see if I can attend the training and be "certified".
The most important thing is the boss likes it very much!

We ran into the same problem: professional installation. Experience certainly counts on any flooring install, and we had refusals from several as to the trailer in & of itself (glue down cork tile). Did find an installer through a higher end flooring store finally. Prep is everything (as with painting), but few were even interested in discussion once they learned it was a TT (of any sort).

I too have had serious issues with sheet installation. I have been repeatedly told that underlayment must go down first. I also have not been able to purchase it in sheet form due to dealer agreements here.

I think that is a bunch of bunk Frank. I can say that underlayment DOES NOT need to be installed IF you have a suitable substrate to bond the Marmo. The Marmo directions are very clear and easy to understand. I also think that Forbo will sell direct. If I had to depend on a flooring contractor for Marmo, Abby would be sporting her sub-floor with a tinted epoxy.

Frank,
I don't know why this didn't occur to me last night. When you need some Marmo, call Jim at Eco-Wise 512-326-4474. He can order whatever you want and drop ship to your shop. Tell him I referred you

Lance that floor looks stunning! I can't wait to see in person tomorrow. The color is beautiful. It looks so clean and inviting it makes you just want to lay down on it and take a nap.
