Looks Good.
How about some more info? Brand, adhesion, work-ability.

The product I used is called Modern surface advantage, French elm, 25 year warranty. The adhesive is also made by modern surface, Pressure sensitive vinyl tile adhesive. I used a chalk line down the middle of trailer and layer out each row staggering the joints. It took me all day to install and my back and knees were killing me. The clean up was easy, I used goo be gone to get up the adhesive that came up after I roll the floor with 100 lb roller, it was hard to get around in such a small space. The closet were also hard to lay down, no square edges. I'm not sure what kind of trim I will install 1/4 round or 1/4 inch aluminum angle.

As to workability, you can cut this product with an exact opposite knife.

flooring

Larry, looks great, I am in process of replacing my flooring in my 66 Overlander . But every time I find the color and design I like( light colored wood grain in vinyl plank) I am told not to install in camper due to temperature inconsistancy, too much expansion and contraction. Did you research the product you used? Thanks, Joey

Take those cautions with a grain of salt. Yes many products will have problems with expansion in larger areas but the amount of surface we are dealing with in a trailer the expansion will be lost in the noise.

I have had my Armstrong floating floor in for 10 years and have never seen any evidence of movement.

No I did not do my research on this produce. I think it will be fine but I live on the west coast where it never freezes. The produce seems very stable. I thought about putting in floor heating however was convinced that it would not heat my trailer and cost was prohibitive.
