Post Linoleum in your RV...

What are your preferences on linoleum in your RV?

Do you favor having linoleum everywhere (vs. carpeting)? Even in the bedroom?

Are you a fan of the "wood plank" vinyl flooring look? Or do you prefer the tile look?

We have the tile everywhere except the bedroom. I prefer carpet in the bedroom. It makes it feel warmer.

After 6 years of carpet in our last rig - we tore it all out and put Vinyl flooring in and it looked 1000% better... Used the planking look. Our rig had light blue carpet that looked great when we bought it, but after years of many weekends/vacations/sun fading it looked horrible.

Took our linoleum out in the living area and up in the bathroom bedroom area. Keep the carpet in the bedroom. Used laminate wood flooring.

Vinyl throughout. Much easier to keep clean.

Ours has carpet on the slides only. Our PDI guy said they haven't figured out a way to hide the slider-to-main-floor transition without using carpet yet.

We have the wood plank flooring linoleum everywhere else. LOVE it! A dust mop every day keeps it lookin' great, along with a damp mopping now and then. A couple that camps with us often has a different brand camper with the tile look flooring. I envy ' that looks *so* real, right down to tiny chips on the edge of each "tile". She hates it though, LOL, says it always looks dirty.

IMO, the less carpet the better. (It *had* to be a man that invented something you permanently attach to the floor, walk on it with shoes hundreds of times a day, spill stuff on it, and can't pick it up and throw it in the washer.) /snork

We recently ripped the carpeting in the main areas of our home and installed vinyl plank flooring in the LR and hallway....gradually doing that throughout the house...that stuff is indestructible!

PS: Seeing what's on the concrete beneath the carpet was a total shock!

No carpet. Anything but carpet. I am bad enough with dirt being tracked in on the linoleum, carpet would be a nightmare. I am happy with bath or washable throw rugs in spots like the doorway and at the sink.

We have vinyl in living and bath areas in our 2012 Coachmen Mirada MH. Carpet in the bedroom. Our vinyl is the tile look and looks ok. Kind of like the wood plank look better.
Any comments for any MH owners with real grouted tile? It seems to me it would take a lot of care to keep it looking nice/clean. Especially the white grout. Also I have seen some pretty shoddy grout jobs on a few MHs.

Just curious.

Carpet in the bedroom, vinyl everywhere else. Carpet on the slide makes the most sense there, we keep the plastic covering on it.
