Carpet replacement

After 3 years the Columbus has some wear on the bedroom carpet- has anyone replaced with wood grain planks? Just looking for some advice or experience

I think a potential issue you might face in doing this is the extreme temperature fluxuations our units see throughout the average year and the flex our coach sees and feels while moving down the road. Some of those floor types just cannot handle the flexing that our floors will be subjected to.
Good luck with your decision.

Many of our friends have done the stick together planks, tabs on the sides, and then they float over the subfloor. They've been fine. Like a floating deck on the ground. Heaves a bit in the winter and settles back down in the spring. I wouldn't hesitate to do that. Seems more likely to give more than if it were glued down. 2 winters ago most of the campers had buckles in the laid linoleum because of the cold. Had nowhere to go to relieve the stress.

Many posts in the forum here of people who have redone their floors with the Allure Vinyl plank flooring product from the likes of Home Depot, Lowe's. Many report much success.
