VCT stands for Vinyl Composite Tile, very inexpensive and available in many color options. It is readily available at Bome Depot or Lowes manufactured by Armstrong

It is the very same method you would use to tile a room in a house. It is a bit trickier to find the center of the trailer with all of the cabinetry in place but, we were able to do it.
Thanks for the info! Have you towed it? I've heard to try and line up with subfloor seams so that stress cracks don't appear at the joints in the plywood. Though the original flooring was not done that way.

Yes, we have towed several times without any issues to date.

The floor looks great! Our AS is dark inside. I like the look of the lighter floor.
