We were told that the PO of our trailer put in BeauFloor, which is one that Airstream uses. However, the tile is actually Allure Trafficmaster, available in stock at our Home Depot.
Interestingly enough, it does say not for use in camping trailers, so I don't know why the PO selected it, but we have had the trailer for several months, it has been in our driveway for a month with the AC turned on and off and so far, no problems. It does slightly show subfloor seams when the tongue is aggressively raised to level it.
It has a very hard surface, almost like ceramic. When we went to look at the trailer I took a moisture meter. I could not penetrate the surface with the meter pins. With about a month of total use by us and our three dogs it shows no wear and it cleans easily.
According to the installation manual it is a floating install. The tiles stick to each other, not to the subfloor. I wonder if it was installed that way in our trailer as I don't understand how/why it would show subfloor seams if it was floating.
Other than the warning in the manual about use in camping trailers, I'm very happy with it. Time will tell. I have seen posts on here of others who have used the Trafficmaster Allure family in their trailers, so maybe there aren't any real issues.
