We have put down commercial grade vinyl planks in our home and the only problem was that it telegraphs any bumps or dips in the floor but we and the dogs are happy with it.
Good Luck
Bill

I installed the light oak Traffic Master in 2009 over 1/4 inch luan. No problems or odor at all. Just take into account that it will shrink and swell depending on the temperature. Try to install it when the temp is not at either extreme and give it alittle space at the edges so it can move. If you are going to add trim, try to attach the trim so that the flooring can move in and out under the trim. G

I installed Allure and experienced shrinkage on some of the butt joints. Not all but some. Would put in again.

Did that happen over the winter? If so, did the warm weather make the shrinkage go away?

If you can post some photos, I would be grateful.

Me too! In winter a few of the long joints open anough to notice. It's better than the OEM tiles . . . I guess . . .

We've had our TrafficMaster floor for over two years. Small gaps show up in the winter at the butt ends but disappear after it warms up. It's a great floor and the small amount of shrinking in the winter is well worth the durability and overall appearance. We installed the cork color and could not be happier with the result and performance of this tile.

I would reconsider your decision to lay vinyl planks in your trailer.

I installed 6"x36" vinyl planks in my trailer and I have 1/8" gaps in them right now (in Colorado). Dirt enters the cracks and then they heat up. As they heat up the dirt pushes the joints upwards and you never have a clean seam.

That's just my experience. The only reason I haven't replaced them is time and money. I spent close to $800 on just the materials alone.

Good luck.

Kitty,

Were your planks TrafficMaster Allure?

No, they were not. They were Centiva brand. Not sure if there is a difference by my experience with vinyl tiles has not been positive. I should have been more clear.

Not sure if there is a difference between brands.

My Allure Trafficmaster floor has now shrunk at the ends also. I will wait to see what happens this summer. Overall, it still looks good because the shrinkage makes them look like planks. Even so, i sure hope the gaps close when it heats up.

Allure Flooring

We have used Allure flooring for many projects including:

- Condo living room and kitchen
- Apartment kitchen and bathroom
- Cottage bathroom
- Home bedroom
- Airstream complete floor over original plywood.

In all applications, we have been very pleased. No odd smells, no shrinkage issues....good for easy clean up and wet areas. The installation is easy and straight forward.
