I am also very pleased with my cork flooring. It came out absolutely beautiful.
I bought the materials from diyflooring.com
My choice was Westhollow click type flooring, not the cheapest, but I am now very glad that I went with it.
It is a floating design, very easy to work with.
You can see it in my thread: A 63 for me

The cork continues to be easy to maintain in ours and looks great.

Also, that is a great built-in in the front. We have been considering doing something similiar to house computer and Audio/Visual stuff.
After prepping the floor, I edged the entire floor with a black molding which was wide enough and deep enough to slot in the cork underlay and the tiles to where it gave enough room for contaction and expansion and also a nice trim. Then cut the cork underlay and used a simple water based cork adhesive lightly applied. I then weighted it for a month with luan ply. I then cut and fit the cork tile and applied a water based tile adhesive. Then I put 3 coats of satin poly ( duramax by minwax) I just took the rig on a 1500 mile road trip and the floor held up perfectly.
The build in at the front houses all the audio-visual wiring and gizmos. I drilled 2 x 2.5" holes (one each end) to drop the wiring through.
The other work station/countertop I built after taking out the sofa/bed in the kitchen (never used it)..I fabricated an aluminum frame over the wheel base (very light) and shelved in the lower part and coutertopped the top. it houses all the wiring and gizmos in the same way (access holes on each end and one in the center).

..forgot to add..look on-line for cork companies( search bar)...ask for samples...then keep a watch out for sales and specials. I estimate my floor cost me $600 plus my time.

I have enough wood flooring (wilsonart-a pergo"like" flooring) left over from flooring my living room to do the floor in my CCD. It is a beautiful cinnamon color and the floating over rubber membrane type. Anyone ever done anything like that before? Cork is cool, but I already have this flooring and it's so pretty.

Many have installed Pergo , or Wilson Art or similiar flooring. It holds up well and looks good. I guess the beauty of cork is the feel of it, it stays warm all year round, comfortable on the feet, adds some insulation for sound and is easy to maintain. I have Wilson Art in my home and have had it for 7-8 yrs it is terrific and would be fine for your RV also.

West hollow cork

I went with the floating floor from I Floor, and I love it! The application with click lock was tough around some area's but after I was done It was worth it. I still need to put a baseboard around the edge but my H2O heater has priority Jeff
