Thumbs up Vinyl floor

We are new & have received much help from all you members in the past-Thanks a lot.
My wife & I are in the process of restoring "old silver" & I am preparing to skimcote the bath area only & glue down vinyl without underlayment. How long would you expect this solution to last under occasional use & towing?

You shouldn't have any trouble with a small area like the bathroom, unless the vinyl spans over the plywood floor seam...if so, that is the most likely area to fail, as that is where the "flex" occurs.

We took out the carpet and put down ¼ inch plywood using counter sunk wood screws. The original AS floor cracks were covered by the plywood. We filled in all the cracks and screws with the glue that you use to glue down the vinyl. We then put down the vinyl using only the molding around the edge to hold it down. We did put a small amount of glue on the edge under the couch since we didn't go all the way to the front of the trailer. It looks really good, but only time will tell if it tears. It will be easy to replace the vinyl but replacing the molding is the hard part. One year and counting. We'll let you know if it tears.
