Joe,
Your floor looks great - I too love the tile placed at a diagonal. Since the tiles are glued down, what about expansion and contraction? Any worries? I did Allure vinyl planks last year and while I like the result, I get some slight separation in real cold temps...

Do you have a brand you recommend? Thanks for you advise to the forum, very helpful.
Is it brushed on or do you use a chalk gun?

You guys motivate me.
Personally, I wouldn't recommend cork. We have it in our S+B kitchen, and love it, except that it is sensitive to pressure and scratches fairly easily. It is soft and warm underfoot. We used a click system and used no adhesives at all. Quarter round at the edges is all that's needed.

I'm not sure I understand what you are asking - I have no rounded corners in my trailer - I have several 45 angles, for example around the shower and in the kitchen where the sink sits in the corner...

Here are some pictures: The first one shows the gap, the second shows the gap with the 1/4 round next to it and the third shows the finished product. If you wonder how I did the curve next to the upper right corner of the slide, I lifted the carpet and slid the flooring under it - it is not fastened any where.

Ernie - this is the first one I have done, you have done many more than me, so I am just showing how I did this one

Here is a picture of it at 5, not a wrinkle:

My mother had cork flooring in her kitchen. While she was standing in the kitchen, the dishwasher hose failed and considerable water gushed onto the kitchen floor.

She quickly jumped into action, turned off the water, cleaned up all the water. No worries.

Until the next morning. Overnight the cork floor had buckled and lifted up several inches. Insurance paid for a complete new floor including the sub-floor.

This is a great thread. They all look great. I am fixing to do mine also. I am going to put glue and screw 1/4 inch plywood over the 5/16th (verified by Gulfstream) OSB, then glue down vinyl planking. I assume that should solve a little bit of the soggy floor. Didn't mean to steal the thread.

Bob, you might want to look at a product called "Luan" (may not be spelled right). It is less that 1/4" and flexes easily for fitting into tight places.

Joe,
I have discussed this spongy floor thing with Ernie and got great tips. Also, I incorrectly stated the floor thickness. It is really 7/16", which still isn't very thick, therefore the 1/4" plywood to strengthen a little bit. I was even thinking of doing just the 1/4" where the slide (18") deep comes and goes, then going maybe 1/2" think elsewhere. Just a thought.

Bob

I hope no one minds that I kinda continue this thread vs starting a new one, as there is so much info in one place.
I removed some of the carpet in the cockpit area and have a steel floor. I did read somewhere an answer from Ernie about laying underlayment over this. The good thing is that the carpet was NOT glued.
Do I just glue the 1/4 in onto the steel?

Don't see how anyone would mind. It's all about replacing flooring!

I see that you have the squared corners. Molding looks fine with that. 99% of the coaches I see have the rounded corners on walls and cabinets. I suspect this is prevent injury when moving about but in a TT you can't do that.
Adhering the luan down, you can use construction adhesive. I would dry fit that, first, as once you apply the adhesive and have to cut something- its a big mess. Be very liberal with that adhesive as you don't want to have any humidity expansion areas that would expand and make your new floor look bad.
