Show me your floor!

I am trying to decide on flooring material, style, color, when installed and where purchased. I would love to hear what you think are the pros and cons, how big is your space. I would love to see lots of pictures. Show me your camper with the floor included! Thanks in advance.

I know a floor installer.
He put CoreTec ďluxuryĒ vinyl plank in his SOB.
I took his advice and hired him to put in our last Airstream. Here is a picture during installation.
It looked great and stayed put in wide temperature swings. Storage during Vermont winters to hot camping. Click image for larger version

Here's my 1956 Shasta floor, 12" vinyl composite tile cut into a basketweave pattern. It's a fairly heavy glue down floor that's a bit of work to install. Might not your best option for a larger trailer, but I thought that you might enjoy seeing it.

Flooring

We put cork 2 years ago & very happy with it. Our cabinets are the light wood look so flooring darker with light running through it. I have not figured out how to post a photo, sorry.

Jacque, please figure out how to post a pic. It is hard for me also, but I have one it, keep trying. Very interested in seeing what your cork floor looks like.

Is it not soft and easy to damage?

I installed bamboo flooring, and wouldn't recommend it. Wininck (vintagetrailering.com) has done some glorious linoleum floors, but that seems to be something that would only work with a full gutting job.

Last year, we replaced the VCT flooring with identical VCT (gray and white checkerboard). The old flooring was coming up/loose (probably at least 15 years old.) When we took up the old floor we realized that the previous owner had hardly used any glue. We used a generous amount of glue and installed a vent fan to help with the summer heat when not in use. So far, so good. I love the look and it goes with our trailer.

I've tried 3x to upload/attach a photo, but it kicks me out and I have to start all over. If someone would be so kind to tell me how to upload/attach photos, I'd greatly appreciate it.
