I have a LLbean water hog in my home kitchen on a vinyl floor. It has discolored the floor under it.
I'd take it out when you aren't using the trailer to avoid discoloring. Just in case.

No problems so far with our Eddie Bauer flooring.
The dark flooring seems to be holding up to the rigors of camping.
We throw kayaks in through the back hatch, several bikes and a couple of grandkids camping ....a tough floor.

While my vinyl floor looked like its wearing well the problem it has buckled under the rear dinette and in front of the kitchen cabinets. Noticed this after moving to Missouri and the first winter it got down close to 0F. Its pretty cheap stuff and paper backed. Going with Marmoleum as a replacement.

It think its a good question, we use carpet runners and now that they are removed for cleaning, I realize how much I dislike the vinyl flooring.

So this begs the question, what do you replace it with? It must be lightweight and pliable. cork? Carpet?

As I sit here writing this at Pete's dinette prepping for a long weekend trip to our favorite campground with our nearly 3yo and 6 yo grands along, I'm reminded that we really like the FC vinyl.

And I remember how much we didn't like the light green deep pile carpet in our 2000 MoHo. That was Not for camping. With this floor, we don't worry.. Yes the grooves in the FC vinyl trap dirt, but a steam mop is your friend....

I guess different trailers or different years have different flooring?
Our fake hardwood roll vinyl has been very durable.
I don't think the basket weave looking textured stuff in the new Classics will hold out as well as what's in our trailer.

Geez... am I disappointed. I thought our floor was Italian Marble.

We use rubber backed hallway carpet from Costco (in two different colors to match your decor) to protect those areas and an entry rug. To clean, we shake them and the dogs out once a week.

The 'fake off white leather' cushions, we had zippered covers made to protect them from actually using them in unsanitary conditions during Boondocking.

This may be a surprise to some, but I bet the wood grained cabinets... are also... fake.

unmentionable flooring

I won't even tell you what is on the floor of my 1969 Sovereign - you'd have nightmares!

I just wanted to say thanks to all of you regular posters - I know that there will always be something to learn and, even better, always something to laugh about. Makes those 'painfull' learning moments easier to take.

In my world, the "realist" wants to know what is in the glass.

Glass half empty/half full? In MY day, we didn't HAVE glasses! We walked three miles uphill - both ways - to get to the mosquito infested pond and drank like dogs on all fours and we were grateful! 😜
