Attaching quarter round

I'm planning on laying a floating cork floor in my completely gutted Streamline and using quarter round as a base board to cover the expansion gap. What is the best way to attach the quarter round to the walls? Screws or some type of adhesive?

Is Vulkem strong enough to hold it in place before it's dry or do you need to lean something heavy up against the molding to keep it from popping off the walls (especially around the curved corners)?

I had a tough time with the quarter round. Are you going to use wood QR or the vinyl covered foam stuff? I used a brad nailer and Elmers glue to make the joints in the QR itself. I used glue and the brad nailer to hold it to the walls or floor. I like the idea of the vulkem. Wish I had thought of it. If I were to do it over I would forgo the QR and just try to make a neat joint and fill it with a joint compound matched to the floor. You need an expansion joint but the trailer is only 8 feet wide so you do not need a huge expansion joint. A safety note: There are lots of short pieces of QR. I used some as short as 1/2 inch or so. Be sure you are cutting them from a long piece that is safe to work with instead of losing a finger trying to salvage a 6" piece of wood.

I did use a 'brad' nailer, air powered, to set a couple of the pieces... but, behind each was a little bit of the flex stuff..like Vulkem.

If you use vulkem only, then, use some 'blue painters tape' to hold the part in place till cured. I secured to the vertical places only.. that lets the floor 'float' under the QR.

If it is a floating floor (ours is a laminate floating floor) do not nail or glue the 1/4 round to the floor. It will keep the floor from expanding and contracting. We used an air gun with brads and silcone to attach to either the wall or wood panels.
