Unfortunately, this is a problem with almost all trailing IMHO.. I've got a big boxy non-AS trailer that has excessive leaks in now due to the use of a poor (imho) sealing compound around doors/windows/seams.. Anyway, sorry for being OT -- I guess our work is never done. I'll be ripping old sealant off and replacing all over.. Ick!

Well, I decided to do the head/shower area. Past the point of no return, even removed the toilet (thank goodness it hasn't been properly "broken in" yet ). The latest photos----

Almost there

Finished laying the cork, had exactly one 9"x12" tile left, plus scrap. Put on the finish coat of sealer/finish this morning and the floor trim strip this afternoon. Tomorrow the bed, wardrobe and toilet will go back in and I'll be done. I am very pleased with how everything is coming together.

You are doing a beautiful job!
From your photos it appears that there is no space for expansion where the floor meets the wall. I am curious if this is the case or just an illusion. I have installed a few floors in Airstreams this summer and have had a few problems with not leaving enough space for the floor material to expand. What does the manufacture of you product suggest?
The reason I ask is because I would like to install cork in my trailer and I really like what you have done. NICE WORK, you will never regret doing it right and it sure looks like you did.

I left little to no room for expansion. However, if I see any issues, the beauty of cork is it is easily trimmable with only a razor blade. It is also glued to the floor so I dont know how much it will actually expand. The manufacturer didn't mention anything about expansion.

Done!

Finally. Got the bed back in, closet back in, electrical back in, and toilet back in. I am very pleased with the results. The floor is soft on your feet, warm to the touch and gives the coach even more of a "high end" feel. I love it. As long as it doesn't come apart on me I think it will look spectacular for a very long time. Time will tell, I suppose

Beautiful work! I especially like that you gave the TP an artful fold before taking pictures

I don't care for the carpet in our Airstream either but don't think DH and I have the artistic ability you do to replace it ourselves.

Thank you for sharing your fine remodel!

Wow, that is beautiful flooring. Wish I had the time and talent to do ours. Maybe I could hire someone to get it done someday.

You know I was skeptical at first, but it looks great. You've made my carpet look terrible. I'll have to avert my eyes whenever I'm in the bedroom. When we get back home, you'll have to do my floor too!

What's your next project?

Skeptical is good. I'm still wondering how it will hold up after a few thousand miles of towing, expansion in the heat, etc. Sure it looks amazing now, and if it was in a house, i would not be worried, but you never kow what will happen on the road.

I'll be sure to report any issues (if any) that rear their head.

Job well done

Congratulations! It looks fabulous! Your trailer has an even more upscale look...if that's possible in an Airstream. ;-)

Our vinyl flooring has given us a lot of aggravation (It buckles in the springtime and flattens by the end of summer.) This glue-down cork may to the trick.

Thanks for your photo-diary of your adventure in flooring.

Lisa
