Floor Choices

Has anyone in the colder regions of the country had issues with hard wood or laminate flooring? i.e., buckling? We have taken up the carpet and want a solid surface type of floor, but we store the camper in the winter and are concerned with warping. Any suggestions would be great!

My choice would be floating cork for a new floor. Warm underfoot, quiet and soft, looks good, easily repairable should the need arise, and no problems with expansion/contraction.

We have a floating cork floor: in 3 years now and no problems. It is definitely warm underfoot and we love it.

Our Travelux is gutted right now but we plan on putting in real Linoleum. I have it in my home's kitchen and I love it. With the buckling, yes, I've seen it. A few years ago we went to Norwich NY to look at a Airstream for sale. When I opened the door, I could see all of the owner's hard work was for naught. What a mess.
