None of the flooring from the major sources is recommended to be used in RV from what I can see. They all require conditioned spaces to honor any warranty and at least prevent failure. I suppose if you live in a temperate climate or full time its not as much an issue for someone that stores their AS over the winter in cold climates.

What brand of flooring did you have installed? Did the installation require removal of kitchen cabinets etc? It sounds you had a sheet product installed.

Thanks

We are only removing the front side tables, sofa and toilet. CoretecPlus click and lock sounds like a wonderful floor but now my concern is weight. Guess that is the next thing to check out. Unless we have some hidden floor issues, which would be good to know that is all we are removing. Since we are full-timers, never store and stay in fairly moderate temps hope that will be enough.

36.4lbs per carton.

8 mm thick

Using these numbers for their 5 x 48" plank
5 x 48 = 240 sq in

26.68 sq/ft x 144 sq/in = 3841.92 sq inches

3841.92 / 240 sq in = 16 planks per carton

5 x 16 = 80” wide = 7 foot 8” wide x 4ft long

For my 25fb figure about 6 cartons of material laid which would be about 218lbs roughly. This will probably be considerably heavier than the thin, paper back OEM vinyl.

This flooring is made in China.

Did you go with the Coretec?
