Do they look like wooden planks? About 36 by 6 inches? The sticky is two sides on top and the other two side on the bottom? I think it was called 'Traffic Master'. Put in Silver Bullet last year. It's going to be replaced with something else. It developed gaps and didn't stay bounded in cold temp. I use an electric heater and it came unbounded and the edge curled up in from to the heater. Worked good in the summer, but not in the cold.

Trafficmaster Allure. Yep. That's it. I really like it. Sorry to hear it doesn't stand up to the cold. I will scratch that one off my list.

Tina,
Did you end up putting down Marmoleum?Did you glue it all down or let it float?

I don't believe you can float Marmoleum, or at least it is not recommended by the manufacturer Forbo. If someone has done it, I'd like to know how it worked out.

Lumatic,
I saw Paul Mayeaux's 55 at the Texas Vintage Rally and his was I believe attached at the edges but no glue down.It looked really flat.

Vinyl flooring = PVC = not for me.

My favorite flooring option (cost, weight, durability and ease of installation) is latex/rubber tiles. It is chemical free, many colors to chose from and comes in 18x18 tiles. You can get the ones with the little dots throughout the tile for a non-slip surface.

I didn't find the Amtico website easy to use. My preference is cork for look and feel, but I want an easy to clean surface that will stand up to fulltime use. I also like the idea of keeping moisture away from the subfloor. Marmoleum is an interesting product, but it doesn't seem as water resistant as I would like in a tough environment like a fulltiming, boondocking, camping trailer.

The Amtico fiber carbon line is pretty cool!

Still, we don't have a floor

And we haven't finalized our decision, but I am still leaning towards Marmoleum, and we would glue it down.

Sorry for the late response, somehow I missed this question.

Tina

The installation of the engineered hardwood floors was done using a floor nailer into the plywood subfloor

Can you tell me how this Allure Trafficmaster has held up since you installed it. I've heard reports of bubbling and peeling up from heat. We live in FL and our trailer gets up to 115 F when parked.
