Anyone have Cork flooring?

I'm attracted to the look, as well as cork's sound and heat insulation properties. Does anyone have experience with cork flooring in their AS?

Here is video at YouT installing cork in old AS

Reason I like it easy to cut, easy to lay out for newbies like me. I am debating whether to cover up vinyl flooring with something better. Previous owner hired idiots to put carpet squares in and put cuts in vinyl. I would have kept carpet but dam people do not have any taste. New silver grey carpet squares or cork flooring I am debating over. I had seen cork at Lumber Liquidators, there sample looked like dirty plywood. If it is inexpensive I may give it shot and remove later if needed. My trailer is mostly stripped out right now. Closet,bath area,fridge are still there. If it was total gutted I think my novice skills could install something nice with Oxide finish.

Yes, we put a floating cork floor in our AS last summer. Very pretty, and not hard to lay, esp. with everything stripped out. Cost us about $900, so not cheap. We did not do the bathroom. We can tell the difference in warmth between the cork side and vinyl bath floor (cork is definitely warmer). We have not camped in it yet, and currently have it covered as we do our interior work. We are very happy with it so far ( as far as that goes).

Yup, we put 2' x 1' cork tile down last summer and applied a couple of coats of sealer for a seamless install. Very happy with it, warm, extremely lightweight, self healing, easy to clean, flexible and cheap. I'd be surprised if we spent $200 on materials. Here's a photo off my iPhone so not the greatest.

Awesome! Thanks for the info. Does anyone have any experience with insulating between the flooring and metal floor plate? Mylar perhaps?
