2001 40FD What is flooring made of...?

Wifey is trying to make the floor look nice in our 2001 Alpine kitchen /bath area...it seems to have a light haze on it. It looks like hardwood floor...but could be anything I guess.

What is it made of, if anyone knows...and what do you use to clean/polish/ care for it ??

Thanks...

Stan,

In my previous 2001 Alpine Coach, I had the "WilsonArt Laminate Wood Flooring" in the galley, which is what I suspect you have. Take a look at the 2001 Brochure on Adobe page 13 in the ACA Technical Section at this link:

Thanks Dale..

All that says.. is it has Wilson Art laminate flooring. I don't know if that is vinyl fake woood, or something else. It looks real..but doesn't act real.

Of course they don't tell you much about care and maintenance of whatever it is.

Therein lies the dilema..

What did you use to clean/shine yours ?

Thanks

Wilson Art laminate is a non waterproof copy of Pergo. I had three Wilson Art floors in our 2000 DSDP and Pergo in the stick house. Anything made for laminate flooring will work. I have the Pergo brand cleaner for the stick house.
