Wannaroam, no one has mentioned this but some flooring gives off fumes when subjected to high heat. I am suspicious that vinyl gives off an odor.

We went with Marmauleom - it's billed as "green", made of natural products and it was easy and cheap, about $3.00 sq. foot.

The new issue is more expensive, but we picked ours up from last years' colors.

Good luck

Diagon Alley?

Looking to get rid of the carpet and replace. Our home kitchen is long and narrow, and we put oak flooring in diagonally -- magically makes it a lot roomier! I see a 2007 post in this thread where a Streamer did that with Konecto or TM, but no pix. Any thoughts or pictures out there?

I just saw a new product called Invincible at a place called carpet one. It looks and feels like real wood, with wood grain built in. AND, it is water proof top and bottom…..it snaps together and can be cut with heavy duty scissors.

The cost per box was $5.99 per square foot. Has anyone tried this yet?

I am looking for a durable green floor. Are you happy with this product? Did you use sheet or the click?

Looking for updates from those who installed "Allure"

It's been a while and hopefully there are still lots of the folks who installed Allure in their TTs or MHs who are ready to talk about how that has worked out for them.

While I want to hear as many as will talk about them, I am most interested to hear about those of you living in the more northern areas about how the winter has been to your Allure.

So, anyone...? Did it shrink, expand, crack, or does it still look like it just came out of the box?

We put it in our kitchen at home, and I swear, this stuff seems like it's bulletproof (not that I have tried firearms on it!).

What worries me is my decking is 1/2" plywood and it is like a trampoline in spots. The flexing bothers me but also the potential for undulations where the decking has sagged over the years bothers me as well. My flooring rights now consists of gray deck paint and some throw rugs. I want to improve on that but I have been dealing with the major issues and am gradually getting to the cosmetic issues which are relatively minor.

Perry, do you think it would be a good idea to put down a layer of 1/4" ply to help reduce the flex a bit?

I've noticed it too, but I just always put it down to the 24" spacing of the frame, which I have always felt to be inadequate.

I'm thinking that I will do that when I put in new flooring next year.

The plywood would help for sure but you are going to have to have lots of nails or glue it down. Otherwise, it won't stiffen the floor that much. I was wanting a floating floor so it can be easily removed to check for floor problems. When I get around to pulling the front bottom skins, I may add some support for the floor under there. I may just live with the gray floor and throw rugs till I get an idea what I want to do with the interior. We are just starting to camp in the trailer so I am sure we will get a better idea what needs to stay and what needs to go. My 81 trailer suffers from the same cheap plastic interior that the 70's trailers had.

I was thinking of putting in some indoor outdoor carpet as a short term floor solution. They use to make some that had a gray rubber backing that was about 1/4" thick and it would stay where you put it. It would not have to be nailed down. I have not seen any of this carpet lately. I could cut that stuff to fit and it would look good and offer some padding. It would come right up if it got wet.

I think you can find that type of carpet at both Lowes and Home Depot these days. Most of what I have seen comes either 6' wide or 12' wide. You might be able to find some comes in 9' widths. You buy it by the foot right off of the big rolls. There are several varieties as low as maybe 60 cents per square foot.

I was considering 3/4" or 7/8" staples to give a bit of extra support to the "sandwich" of a 1/4" over the existing floor without locking it away and making repairs to any damaged floor near to impossible.

Actually, I really have no objection to carpeting in the TT, except for two areas: the bathroom, and the galley area. Maybe I will go with Allure in those two areas, and carpet the balance. We use a Roomba (small robotic vacuum cleaner) to keep the existing carpet free from the sand that continually tries to work its way into the trailer, so a mixed floor wouldn't be any more problem to clean than what we have now.
