laminated flooring


I am close to finish the restoration of my 68 Overlander, and I would like to know if the laminated floor can be used (Quick Step) , or I must put vinyl floor (Amstorng),,,,,,,,I preffer laminated , if this kind of floor will fit or not, or can be desasjusted due the flexibility of the trailer....

Does anybody put laminated floor and have no problems?
Any suggestion?

I used it and I don't have any problems. I used flooring with the insulation backing. Just make sure you don't have leaks and put a matt at the front door. My new trailer I wil use interlocking hardwood.

We've just completed our 2nd full season after installation - still looks like the day it was installed. Despite warnings about moisture and resulting swelling/shrinkage we have not seen evidence of any issues at all - I did make sure to follow the instruction for clearance - but the trailer also small - it's a 19' Bambi - so that may be a factor. It also wears well - our dogs nails have had no impact at all.

We chose a product by Dupont, a smart Sandstone type of look, that had a foam backing already installed onto it. The tiles were a little large - 12 inches X 24 inches - so cutting a couple of them was a little finicky - I did waste one (cut it twice and it was still too short). The biggest part of the job was that the trim was time consuming - a number of awkward pieces - but that might be just a characteristic of the Bambi.

Seems to be great stuff - very affordable - easy clean - doesn't show the dirt - in fact it looks great all the time (beats the carpet we replaced hands down) .... and, now that it's been done once - and the trim is all cut - it will be easy to replace .....

We put QuickStep in 4 years ago and so far, so good. Easy to keep clean. Will say that it is cold to the touch on a chilly morning....
