That’s the beauty of Marmoleum vs synthetic vinyl - it’s much more stable. It’s made from wood pulp, talc, jute & linseed oil instead of plastics & vinyls which expand & shrink more with the hot/cold weather cycles. Also a lot of vinyl flooring is made in layers which expand/contract at different rates which can cause bubbling.
Ours in the Safari has been down 15 years now and it looks as good now as it did day one. Our old Globetrotter’s is probably hanging in there too - but we don’t have it any more to report on.
