Hardwood flooring

I wonder if any of the flooring that is being talked about on tv is winding up in campers, we all know how the companies that make rv's will save a buck

Most (if not all) RVs use sheet vinyl flooring. But I have seen posts by others that they are changing out their flooring for products from this vendor. Hope they check into this and review if they want to keep it in their rigs.

Laminate hardwood is not usually found in campers unless the owner puts it in. It adds too much weight.



But I would like to know more before I pass judgement on the company that has made the news. & I sure would not panic & have any of their products removed from my house before more is known. The TV typically blows everything out of proportion........................

It makes me wonder about people who get cancer get over it and then it comes back in about a year. If any was installed in my house I would get the floor tested and if it was positive then I would find a lawyer. I remember New Orleans a few years ago and all the trailers that was made by Forest River and other RV manufacturers. The company's that make rv's would sell there soul to save a buck. So I'm pretty sure where there's smoke there's fire.

The problem with the Chinese manufacturers, they can do whatever they want, due to the fact that they are not regulated on their flooring. Call the NWFA and they will tell you the same thing. The flooring and the mills in the US are regulated and have standards. If the hardwood flooring is not made in the US, don't buy. That includes all of the box stores. No matter where, don't buy.
