Vinyl Plank Flooring

Just finished replacing our sheet linoleum with vinyl floor planks. This took a good amount of time to finish since I had to cut around all of the cupboards and other openings. We took the camper out of storage this year and saw that the vinyl linoleum was cracked in 2 places. After looking at our choices we decided to go with the vinyl planks. It is a 2005 Cherokee Lite 28A TT. The camper is still in very good shape so we wanted to make sure what ever we did it complimented the look of the camper. It is a floating floor and I did some research and found that this will work in the camper. I am just worried about the extreme cold that we get here in Minnesota while the camper is in storage. I guess we will see how it looks next spring when we take it out of storage. I did not take many pictures before I stated but I took a lot after it was done.

I made a video of this as I went along but it is not done yet. Will link to it when it is finished.

Here is a video that I made during the process. It does not show how to connect the flooring but it does show the process as I went along. Towards the end of the video I also show some mods that we did to the camper also.

Spierce617, what brand of flooring is that / where'd you purchase it from? I don't need ours replaced, but if we ever decide to change it, I have several options I'm keeping archived for now.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

Menard's is where I purchased it at. I just uploaded a video that shows the flooring in the box and the brand and color.

I searched at Shaw Floors and can't find anything called Citadel Jaya Teak under their site / Resilient section. Only thing that shows up with that description is at Menards, which is way out of our territory.

Very nice! We were considering this before we bought the new trailer. Will definitely keep it in mind 6-8 years from now.

Big John that is exactly how I felt after I found this in the store. I tried to do some research on it and could not find anything under the Shaw website. A Google search just brought up Menard's. I was told it is a special just for Menard's so it would not be on the Shaw website. Sorry should of mentioned that before.

OK. Thanks for that bit of info. Now I know I'm not too crazy. I do like how that turned out. Looks great.
