Last summer we remove the carpet in all but the bedroom and slide out which we replaced with VillaStone tile, a resin and marble dust product. There are other manufacturers of similar products. It was put down with outdoor carpet mastic. The mastic will withstand high heat and below freezing temperatures. The tile is 18 inches square and requires grouting just like ceramic tile, but it weighs about 1/8th of ceramic tile. The grout is latex and sand based that is flexible. In the kitchen and bath, we used clear caulk. Buy the best long life flexible caulk. Had a water line break and flood bathroom. Absolutely no problem with floor afterwords. Actual weight is just about the same as the carpet and pad that was removed. Under the drivers feet, we took two commercial "rubber" stair treads with the lip removed. These were laid with contact cement because most of that area has a metal plate instead of wood sub-flooring. This has been the best modification we have made and has been very easy to maintain. The hardest task was removing all the staples that were used to install the carpet. Total cost close to $800.

You have a Monaco Signature a top of the line motorhome. What I would put in is carpet in the living room and bedroom and ceramic tile in the kitchen, dinning room, and bathroom, and entry. That is what we have had in the last two motor homes and it works fabulous. BTW we have never had one tile crack.

Vinyl is the way to go. Add throw ruggs for the snuggy feeling and warm feet on the floor. Take them and wash them when dirty. Mop the floor and house work is a snap.

Our Beaver Marquis has cherry hardwood in living, galley, ceramic in bath and carpet in bedroom. Easy to keep clean and looks great. Personally I don't like vinyl flooring.

We replaced most of the carpetting in our coach with wood simulated vinyl flooring. It has worked out beautifully. No problems, with clean up or anything else. In eneral, it's very easy to install. Here'a PIC of the final result.
