Still say it is 1/8"... there should be a 2 by something, likely 2 by 2, at the floor. Stain and or seal pieces, cut shoe to fit, tiny bead or spots of color matched latex caulk on back of shoe molding and nail into 2 by with 3d finish nails or longer brads. Avoid going more than 3/4" into the sill plate, wires may be in the mid point of the 2 by.
Shoe molding is 1/2" wide and 3/4" tall. I would use oak.
Keep in mind that these little moldings get a lot of abuse, bumps from shoes, kids with toys and brooms, vacuums and mops. Better to over do material and installation then to watch one after another pull loose or get damaged.

Buzzards27, I was thinking 1/2" luan for the walls was pretty thick. I know the luan all around my refridg and bench seats is 1/4". When I tap on the walls they do seem flexible and thin like most trailers I've been in. Guess you need to keep the weight to a minimum in these things.
So I'm assuming the along the subfloor there is a wooden sill plate running the entire length of the floor (like there would be in residential construction)? If so, I can use a great angle to hit solid wood. I am going to install a floating floor.
