I and several others I know used advantech 3/4". Less warping, moisture resistant, and very strong.

I called the Nyloboard company just last week for dealer info in my area. They were nice & sent me samples of 1/2" & 3/4" nyloboard (there is no 5/8"). The nearest dealer quoted me prices of $288 for a 4' x 8' sheet of 1/2", and $429 for a sheet of 3/4" 4' x 8'. That's not including the shipping (since they don't keep it stocked in their store) of $120 something. That's WAY out of the realm of possibilities for my pocketbook--I don't know about everyone else! I'm reading this with interest as well!

Isn't advantech tongue and groove? If so it won't break correctly on 4'.

Avantech makes 4x8 sheeting. I checked out the info on their website. Looks all right to me. I am using MGP that I coated with three coats of WestSystem epoxy and three coats of Defthane polyurethane floor finish.
Here is my thread with the post on flooring choices. Good luck!

Find the best grade of Douglas Fir Marine grade plywood you can afford and buy it. I was one of the first OSB reps in the Country and would not use that product in my trailer. Airstream used it back in the late '80's and I believe early 90's and lots of negative comments been made in this forum. PM if you want to know more. Don

Advantech sheathing is available in both square edge and tongue & groove. The tongue in groove is 4x8 until you slide the tongue into the groove.

With tongue and groove the long edges won't break on 16oc, you have to lay it long-waise to break on the floor joists. Make sure that you don't get tongue and groove.

my floor is 7'6" wide X 14' long

design is to place 1 sheet of sub floor at front 7'6"x3' w/2 round corners and at rear
(I have a frame support at 3' front and rear)

design is to place (2)3'3"x7' at center long-waise
(I have a frame support at center)

this will only create (1) T&G edge at center
(I plan to remove bottom of groove then glue top of goove to tongue)
