I found a heavy duty sheet vinyl with cork pattern. Looks like the real thing, it was a lot less expensive. I felt that one piece solid flooring would be easy to clean and help prevent any water from every getting to the flooring in the years to come if leaks develop. (Leaks in an old Airstream- what am I thinking).

Thanks. The figuring is even more beautiful in real life. The manufacturer is APC, and the name is Chronus Natural. It's a little way down in their gallery page.

It comes in the 1 ft by 3 ft (nominal) click together planks. It's engineered, so there is cork on the top and bottom, with MDF in between. It's about 7/16" thick. What you get is prefinished with some type of urethane that's pretty durable. It's a floating floor.

You should be able to order it from any floor store, I'm not sure about HD or Lowe's. Cost was around $5 - $6 per square foot. I laid it over new VCT tile.
