My brother in law installs flooring for a living. He uses a heat gun to heat up the planks before cutting tight areas. You can also score the plank and then snap it.

Using heavy duty brown construction paper is a good idea. Use that to make your patterns, then over lay it on the planks you need to cut.

Install instructions state to start on one wall and then work your way over.

Thanks Guys, I like both ideas. I get some paper, make a story stick with a paint stick and figure the curves.

Did you check out the Ultra Allure with the interlocking edges? I think I'm going to try them. Not much about them here, but rv.net makes them sound promising.

Ok got my Allure sticky sided floor installed. This is the African Dark Wood. Took about 6 hours with my wife. She is taking full credit for the work!

Bulkhead walls are next..

I have them in my galley area and they work great. They are waterproof. I ran a bead of sealant around the edges and then trimmed with quarter-round so that any spills are contained.

Place them VERY carefully. I used the paper separators from the boxes to keep the joints from touching prematurely. Once the adhesives touch, it is goodbye.

Beautiful! Just curious: how heavy is it? We probably added close to 500lb to our trailer weight with our floating cork floor. Worth it, but something to keep in mind.

I would say each case is close to 50 lbs each. It took 7 cases, so close to 350 lbs. They are very dense, heavy, but easy to install.

What did all of you use as a flexible quarter round?

Our 25FB has lots of rounder corners on the cabinets and bed so we need something that will follow the curve.
