2006 Travel Supreme - Tile installation

2006 Travel Supreme. I have removed the carpet and I'm ready to install the tile. The tile manufacturer recommends I use Super Flex mortar. Should we use Thin Set or Super Flex? Concern is with the 5 rollers that will roll over the tile as the slide retracts. Will we crack the tile in the process? if you have recently installed tile flooring please give us your input.

Can't content on the tour of adhesive you use but please consider an epoxy based grout when you are ready for it

Are the rollers steel or the soft material ones, I can say that it sounds like the weight will be spread out along the front but if there is any flex in the sub floor there could be tiles that crack or grout to loosen and come out over time I have seen both.

Do you have reason to doubt the manufacturer's recommendation?

I also am curious about this thread. I have a 2005 allegro bus and my wife hates the carpet. I would love to install tile but not sure how to do it and get it to hold up to the slide rolling over it.

I don't have any input on the tile/grout questions, but I'll be the first to say...please document the process with lots of photos. We love photos.
