Replacing Motorhome Flooring

What are your thoughts on cork tile for a replacement flooring. I've seen a thin cork layer bonded to a hard underlayment. I've also seen solid cork tiles. I would be leaning toward the solid cork, but would like your expert input.

Bear in mind- this will produce a tremendous cloud of dust. If you have a high volume shop vac, that will help.
As long as the rollers can travel back and forth without a void- or space- you should be fine. On this Dutch Star I'm working on, we were able to get the laminate from under the rollers and the wood will slide under them without an issue. We will not move the slide till installation is completed. Ernie

If anyone has flooring questions, slide operation questions, feel free to ask me. After 40+ years in the business, I know a little~
A friend had his Allegro carpet replaced. It's the same year as mine. (see signature) He had to buy 4 rollers to put on the slide leading edge. Is that really necessary? On mine it doesn't seem like the slide "rolls" over the carpet, so why over the floor? just wondering.

There are a few kinds of slides and how they articulate. One type- has arms under the floor and nothing from the slide touches the floor. There are rollers that are embedded in the floor and the slide glides over them. Then there are slides that have rollers on the slide and roll over the floor. Then there are Teflon slide pieces that impact the floor. Then- there is a combination of all the above. WHEW

Is there anyone near Birmingham or Huntsville, AL who replace motor home carpet with tile or hardwood. We have 3 slides so not sure we want to tackle the job ourselves.

Don't know how good a job they do.

Bring it to Texas and I can do it. Would have to be after Aug, as I'm booked solid.

Bring that coach out here to Mesa, Ariz. RV Renovators can do all to a motorhome. Just don't come in the summer time, winter only.

I have joined the forum today and would like to share my thouhts about the flooring discussion. I think its better to have laminate flooring Most laminate floors consist of a moisture-resistant layer. Laminate flooring is durable and less expensive.

don't get laminate wet~
