Well my PUMA 31bhss cracked this winter. Unfrotunately my dealer closed his doors. The big name delaer in the area took over and won't help. Extended warranty doesn't cover lino. I emailed FR and got a standard repsonse of "out of warranty" too bad.

Yes I know this is a common problem for a lot of norther RV owners from various manufacturers. But the other manufacturers seems to do something about it and actually take some pride in resolving the matter. FR seems to sweep it under the lino.

Yes I will be avoiding FR in the future, as I find it hard to support a company that won't stand behind their products.

Just bought a 2011 Rockwood and the floor is only glued around the outer edge, no glue around the heat ducts.

If my memory serves me correctly, there was recently a posting about this on forum. Have no idea what repairs were suggested, but it might be a resource. Good luck with warranty coverage.

So from the research i have done so far..... glue down tile cork is hard to find locally, I can get it off the net but I don't like the looks of it from the pictures supplied. I am afraid laminate is too thick for my slide, plus its a lot of added weight. The Allure vinyl from HD reportedly shrinks in the cold weather exposed cracks at the joints. So far the front runner solution is fiber floor - from what I read this is basically the newer version of lino - instead of lin seed they are using other fiber materials. The stuff is much thicker than vinyl and the key is that it is not paper backed. The sales person showed me how the paperback material curls while the fiber floors do not - this was evident just by the rolls hanging on the rack. The brand I am looking into is Tarkett.

As for pricing - seems to be $3 sq/ft - and I got a quote of $350 to install....
