Bedroom flooring shrinking

The bedroom flooring (congoleum, I think) is shrinking and moving away from the walls of my 2005 International CCD, 28'. The metal strip that is around the edge of the flooring is now separated from the congoleum. Is this a common problem or my special problem?? What would be the best solution, replace the flooring, replace the metal strip with a larger strip or ??????. Need some advice. Thanks.

Had the same problem with an 07 Safari SS SE. Like mine, yours is probably stapled to the subfloor around the edges and floating everywhere else (no glue). It is merely responding to extreme temperature swings: shrinking in the winter and expanding in the summer. Problem is, it shrinks more than it expands and will eventually lift up above the subfloor and look pretty lumpy. Replacement is in order. The best thing to do is replace it with a floating floor up to but not underneath any fixtures or furniture. I used FLEXITILE NATURAL STONE, A PVC INTERLOCKING FLOOR TILE---A LOT OF WORK BUT WORTH IT. Check it out at FLEXITILES.COM and let me know if I can be of further help.

The floor covering in my 2009 27FB did the same thing after about one year of service. Metal strips were added as a warranty fix. Now pulling out again after some relatively cold weather, but better to have the edges pull back than to have to flooring split because there is no give.
