I'm not familiar with the brand names, but some of this stuff has a strong, industrial (think "tire store") smell that lasts for years. A sniff test would be a good idea.

yes - i LOVE rubber flooring. check out what ive said under topics ( ? ). just make sure you buy a quality product. i have always used a 2 part epoxy to glue it down; thanks for the link, i will buy a roll of double stick tape and try it on a practice piece. nice
to contemplate an easier & quicker method, though the floor on my 1st trailer is still in place, looks great, not 1 tile has lifted in 30 years. BEST RESULTS

Thanks - it seems like a good option. I'll need to replace my carpet soon and the wood-laminate stuff seems too much competiton with the oak woodwork throughout the AS.

rubber flooring

If you haven't already finished-look for Johnsonite Rubber Flooring. It's used in a lot of public spaces-you've probably walked on it and never knew. The most common is a raised dot-comes in something like 50+ colors and goes down with a latex adhesive so no toxic mess to deal with. The pieces come standard 24" x 24" and it's a breeze to cut. Don't worry about rubber smell-not an issue with this stuff. We did a bathroom in our house with it and it held up great. My only beef was the solid colors tend to show dirt easier! Good luck-we're goiong to be replacing our origianl carpeting in our 70 Overlander and we're still considering all the options-not an easy choice!

Flooring

We have put it in both or 59 and our 88. We have the blue coin pattern in the 59 and the basket weave in dark brown in the 88. We like it because the floor feels warmer in cooler weather, it is easy to clean, no wax needed and wears well.

It will show scratches if you are not careful. We used the Flexco brand.

Flexco and Johnsonite are the standards for commercial flooring installation. I know this because I've laid acres of the stuff.

Wet indoor installs should use epoxy. I would consider a TT a wet area.
