I'm doing bamboo in my trailer, but I love the look of real linoleum. Check out Winick's book "Airstream Custom Interiors". Evidently, installation isn't for the faint of heart or the clumsy of fingers!

That's what I used, looks great. 3 boxes did the whole trailer minus bathroom. We'll see how it holds up through the winter.

Has anyone used Beauflor flooring, which is specifically marketed for rv flooring? It says it has a backing that withstands temperature extremes. It appears to be a sheet product, which I suppose is harder to install.

I would like to know about the Beaufloor (sp?) also. Saw that a lot of new SOBs have it installed. Looks great.

I've heard about Beaufort and it's benefits anyone use it?

Also visited an airstream dealership and they had a really cool floor in the class b airstream Benz sprinters. Anyone know what that is? Looks great.

Cork Flooring

Installed this floating floor in my FC last week. Just need to make new trim pieces now.

Fun strong flooring

I am looking at Earthwerkz Cocktails. If I had found it earlier in my project I would go with one of the really fun colors. This is a vinyl plank that has grain like wood but comes in fun colors.

Recycle Rubber Tiles

We are going to try interlocking recycled rubberized floor tiles.

That looks like porcelain tile with a wide grout line but I'm not 100% sure. I've read of people installing this in high traffic areas in homes to get the hardwood look but with the longevity and low maintenance of tile. I think it looks really good. Id be curious to see if that is what this actually is.

On second thought. I doubt that is what it is. It would be too heavy to be realistic and it looks more engineered. Any other ideas?

Maybe Dek-king? It looks like one of those composite products used for a yacht cabin sole. The guys at worldpanel.com would know, if you're more than just idly curious... if you forward them the pic, they'll spec it and sell it!

I have a new one to throw in the ring..CoretecPlus. It is plank click and lock. Also has a backing to make the have a warmer feel and if the subfloor is not completely level the backing helps with that also. I think it is made by USFloors.

Sealed with a quart or two of what?

Um, sorry to be vague but it's just a water based cork tile sealer. IIRC I just read the installation info on the tile I bought and went to a big box store and picked some up. It went on with a pad style mop, dried overnight and gave a really consistent finish. It was slippy for a few days being so smooth but looked great and did protect the floor well. Now it's been a few years and lives with new owners I still see it every so often and it's doing well but has faded a little in the doorway being so exposed to light.
