We installed Allure cork-like planking in our 32' Excella and was very happy with it for about a year. It started shrinking on the ends for about a 4 foot section in the center of the floor. I started filling the gaps with caliking that matched pretty well, but every couple of months the gaps got wider until they were about 3/8 of an inch. Needless to say, this looked like hell- after spending time and money in the first place. We ended up tearing it all out and had a one piece linoleum installed. We did 1/4 round around the edges which looks great. We do live in Los Angeles where it gets pretty hot, so that factors in for our experience as far as the results with the Allure flooring.

It is the sticky edge. I reset the gaps before with a heat gun. I had to remove them plank by plank, then reinstall.

I will move them back again prior to our next trip. LOL

Yep, that's the kind I had trouble with. I loved the pattern, though.

I found the box of my leftover tile. The name brands the IVC product is sold under are:
These are the same product but different patterns. It is good stuff. I do not remember which company uses it in their motor homes but one of the companies do.
