We are thinking of installing Tarkett FiberFloor in there wood pattern. We'll remove the carpet in the lounge area and lay over the kitchen vinyl. No gluing and extremely resilient. Tarkett > Products > Product Details

When installing the laminate floor in the trailer did you have to "tack it down", with anything? I've laid flooring like this before in my house and as it is a "floating" floor does it need to be secured down in some way as the trailer will be moving and bouncing along down the road. I was wondering if that would cause sections of the floor to seperate?

The Pergo floats in a trailer just like in your house, with some kind of small trim at the perimeter also minimally keeping it in place, and allowing for expansion. If you "tack it down" anywhere, you will certainly void any warranty and ensure problems of buckling later on.

Tom,

What brand of glue did you use? I'd be interested in that. I may do the exact same thing.

Only reason I worry is that I have had a plumbing hose come loose and spray down the floor. I'd really hate for that to ruin a new floor.

thanks,

Jim,

I bought the flooring from Lowes and the glue was in a bottle that was sitting with the flooring accessories. I don't remember if it was Pergo brand glue or just a generic glue designed for that type of floor. Unknown how it would respond to being inundated with water for a long period of time. I would think that if you got the water cleaned up within a reasonable amount of time that all would be okay.

I've just laid a new floating floor in Airstream One and used Swiftlock Plus from Lowes.

It went down very nicely and I'm pleased to be able to sweep out after a day of golf pros tracking grass and what not into the coach.

The Plus product comes with an underlayment already built in.

I picked the "Hand Scraped Hickory" as the trim in the bus is all hickory.

The end result is very pleasing and as I write I'm sitting in the driver seat looking at it.... in of all places Hickory, NC.

That looks nice!

So it just clicks together, right? What is the sq footage on a 31' trailer? How many boxes of Pergo did you need?

I installed my Pergo (a look-a-like brand from Lowes) so the grain runs ACROSS the width of the trailer.
I believe this gives a slightly wider apearance to the front room and hall way areas. The waste was calculated to only be 2 planks more this way rather than running them the length of the trailer.

I sure do like the ease of clean up and the appearance.
JMHO.

Nice! We have a 30' SO with carpeting that I would like to take out and replace with Pergo. I've been told it's not do able. Any suggestions?

We have just traded for 34' with Sofa SO with carpeting. The carpet is coming out and being replaced by Pergo now at the dealer.

nswhite,
The "Pergo" is installed on top of a foam pad as a floating floor the same as it is in a house.
I glued all my joints together using the Pergo glue. The foam pad is stapled down.
I will take a couple photos tomorrow and post them here. Thoought I had some but evidently don't.I have not installed the trim around the edges yet as I have been looking for something other than 1/4 round. Wanted some thing like a miniture baseboard, so far no luck finding what I want without having it custom milled, & thats not gonna happen. So will probably end up with the 1/4 round anyway.

After I replaced the rear 8 feet of sub floor and the bathroom floor, I painted the sub floor with Kilz oil based primer and then installed the pergo in all but bathroom (tile) and bedroom ( carpet).

Some photos. Top left, primed front room. : Top right, new bedroom floor : Bottom left, new bathroom floor : Bottom right, taken from bedroom looking forward
