2009 25 FB CCD Floor Peeling

Our laminate floor is peeling in a couple areas and further inspection reveals the bond is failing in a few areas but not everywhere.
Peeling is in the FB street side and aft of the door curb side.

Wonder if anyone else has had the same issue?

Any successful repairs with the existing laminate?

Camper is immaculate otherwise so just trying to handle on the floor now or plan for a replacement in the future. Plan on keeping the camper for another 10 years.

If there is an existing thread please redirect, I could not find a floor thread for any of the late models.

I have a 2008 Classic 25fb and my vinyl floor is buckling. The floor is not glued down. Its attached somehow around the edges and then the furniture and cabinets are installed on top of the floor. Since moving from Texas to Missouri the extreme cold during winter storage has caused my floor to buckle around the kitchen area close to the cabinets, the dinette area and in front of the entrance door. The floor expands and contracts and because the weight of the furniture and cabinets the floor isn't able to float to retain its shape. I checked for water leaks but the Airstream is stored under cover and I haven't found any leaks in the areas of the buckles.

I'm having my vinyl floor removed and replaced with Maromrleum, which is glued down, sometime in May. They will be taking out the dinette, side lounge, front bed and the kitchen cabinets to lay the floor.

Here is one thread:

I usually use Google search to find threads on Airforums.

Thanks KJ, I'll take a look.

Similar observation, no bonding on the floor which seems a bad way to keep a floor down.

Wonder why this has not been a more widespread complaint?

Same thing is happening in our 2009 27FB. The vinyl floor is buckled and bubbled throughout the entire trailer.

On our '14 Serenity, too. We drink Yellowtail until it looks great again. Cheaper and less stressful than a warranty claim.
