Hello 911 Patriot, I'm also considering lining my shower with aluminum sheet to new walls. Can you respond to
1) what aluminum was used? Source?
2) Are you happy with the long term cleaning / maintenance of the shower?
3) any advice (pro or con) related to sealing the shower.
Thanks in advance, Scott

I am following up to see how the floor is holding up? We are looking to add a finished floor to our 1975 Argosy, and we are leaning very heavily on the Smartcore product.
Thankx

Update on luxury vinyl flooring

2.5 years later and it’s great. No buckling at all. No rips - nothing. We had a toilet leak and had to pull up the entire bathroom and part of the bedroom. All of the pieces went back down perfectly. Love it!

Shaw Floorte

I installed Shaw's Floorte floor a year ago. Very happy with the quality of the product.

I have samples of both in the truck to take home tonight. Let's see what DW says. There seems to be height and stiffness differences.

My choice will be interlocking polyurethane foam floor mats. They come in many colors (and woodgrain), and even in a formulation that can withstand combat boots during martial arts training. They are waterproof, insulating, and can be taken up & out for cleaning and floor inspection.

This company has many products - even flooring for horse stalls.

We are happy with the choice so far ...


May I pick your brain?! I’m considering Flor for my ‘06 28’ Interstate. Do you remember how many carpet tiles you purchased for your trailer? How did you figure it out? Are they easy to cut?

Thank you!

Completed the installation of new LVP flooring and a new oak dinette table that I made to update the interior after 10 years.

The flooring is made by Engineered Floors and comes in planks with butt joints. After reading the pros and cons of "click Joint" and glue down floors I wanted something different. It can be loose laid or glued down and I liked the loose lay option in case a section has to come up in the future. The floor can be cut with a razor knife or jig saw.

I did all the removal & re-installation of the furniture and wisely paid a pro to install the flooring. So far I'm happy.

had this flooring installed a few days ago by experienced floating LV plank installers. Took them (2) 1 and a half hours to install everywhere but the bedroom and under the front couch of a 31 classic. lots of corners to go around. I had removed the existing trim, the carpet in front of the couch and the toilet. weather was just on the freezing mark and I had the interior heated to 65 F. that was 4 nights ago. weather is still cold with no interior heat and floor is still in place. Next steps are to replace trim and drive to Florida next week. But so far I'm happy. I'll update next April when I return to Ontario.

Lifeproof Rigid Vinyl Planks

We recently laid new flooring in our 2012 International Serenity. We chose a Lifeproof brand, rigid vinyl plank floating floor in "Sterling Oak". We love it and it went down a dream. It completely locks together, leaving no showing seams, and is "waterproof". It seems very strong and durable. I highly suggest it for anyone wanting to change out their floors. It took us 3 weekends to do it right (under bed, taking out dinette, etc.)

We used this flooring. We removed the flooring down to the sub flooring to correct a hump in the flooring. Click image for larger version
