That pretty much sounds like what I do for a living. Why should the Airstream be any different?

Hey, here's the felt tape. Google "FS2234" for 3/4" adhesive back grey felt tape.

hey y'all.... I trimmed the flooring within 1/4" of walls and other verticle surfaces in the trailer. Next I did 'air nail' using brads into the new flooring.. staggered so that it can flex. In a couple locations I actually glued the trim to the flooring.. I have had ZERO issues.. no loose, no buckling.. I did change some directions and did not lay all one direction.

Over 5000 miles since the install last spring.

Awesome news! What kind of flooring is it?
