VCT Flooring?

I have seen many photos of VCT (vinyl composition tile) installed in Airstreams. I am attracted to it because it comes in a wide array of colors, is easy to install and it is very very cheap. When I was at the flooring place today the guy said not to put it in a trailer as it will pop and crack as it is meant to be installed on concrete. I would love to know if anyone who has put this type of tile in has had that problem.

A tight fit will diminish over time

Welcome to the forum, Maude.

Tile is best installed in a temperature-controlled environment. While "pop & crack" might be a little harsh, in time a group of tiles in a travel trailer will develop ever-increasing gaps between themselves.

We had 12" tiles in a previous trailer (SOB) to replace carpet. They were the self stick kind of tiles. The only problem we had was a couple of tiles lifted up in the winter, but once it warmed up in the spring they stuck back down without a problem. We owned that trailer 3 years after we replaced the floor.
