That looks very nice. ☺
I'm starting to shop for my floor covering now.
What is the flooring? Glue down or floating? Are you able to install it yourself?
Thank you!

Thanks for the complement!

Yes I did it myself. Fortunately I have a workshop with equipment to cut and fit the various pieces. I did not remove all interior cabinets which meant that cutting accuracy was more critical.

I used an Armstrong Luxe Plank product ( http://www.armstrong.com/flooring/lu...luxe-plank.asp) with FasTak. It has a sticky backing which adheres to the floor but can be peeled up again. So it is not "floating" nor is it glued down. We will see how it performs in the long run. It was recommended by the guy at the flooring store. Of course there are many products that could be used.

If you have any questions I would be pleased to try to help!

It has held up very well to "trailer life". No signs of any wear at all and it is easy to clean.

Regrading the separation issue; when it is cold, about 50 degrees and lower, there is some separation. But when it warms up again the separation goes away. So there is definite contraction due to temperature fluctuations. Since most of our camping is in warmer weather it has not been a problem. I tend to be a perfectionist (which on projects like this is not an asset) so I would look for a different product, only from the expansion/contraction issue, if I were to do it again. My DW says I'm crazy (not the first time) and the floor is perfectly fine!
