rental properties and a motor home are not to be compared. Both have different flooring requirements.

Here is a step by step on my install a few years ago. I had over 60 hours into it, but then I can turn any 'ol project into a major deal.

Allure Ultra Laminate Install

Well written for step by step! Have you had any issues with the slide marking the new floor? If so/not, what did you do to mitigate? I have a Winnebago 35 and am considering the same except leaving the drivers area alone,

Vinyl weighs less than tile and will be more flexible. I wouldn't put it in the bathroom, too much chance of water damage. Definitely put it under the driver's feet, use a floor mat. Carpet is nasty, especially in a confined space or you have pets or allergies.

It cost $7,000 only because the tile that was in the kitchen must have been put down with cement and took an extraordinary amount of labor. I'm not that handy and being FT it makes it more difficult to get it done. They did a very thorough job, putting in new sub floor and cleaning everything including inside the cabinets.

I have installed vinyl planks and engineered wood in bathrooms. I always use the correct, premium adhesive with a no failure rate. I just installed engineered maple in our coach and in the bath/shower area.

The slide will mark the floor unless you address the issue. I just took 6 pieces of the left over flooring and tapered the end in a belt sander and lay them good side down before retracting the slide. Place two where the pads are under the bed and one each under the rollers for the couch and 2 just spaced out under the dinette.

Use a product called slide slickers . I've seen it used in some commercial remodels they are Teflon strips you lay down before bringing in the side

I am sorry I did not know that a legitimate question on why people use something is improper in this forum.

Would you please explain to me why they cannot be compared and what the different floor requirements are.


I have carpet and tile in my MH I do not like the carpet and am watching this post to see what is involved with getting rid of the carpet and going to tile. I am curious why people choose vinyl planks. I would worry about the floor going over them and damaging them. I also do not like the looks of them nearly as well as I do tile. I just started putting them in rental houses because some of the higher priced ones look nice and they are much less labor intensive to install, but I do not think they will last nearly as long. I can install them in less than half of the time it takes me to install tiles and I am done with tiles I still have to go through the grouting process. Obviously price depends on which tile you choose and which vinyl planks you choose. If you go with the higher quality home depot vinyl planks and a good quality ceramic tile the over all price not counting labor is about the same In a relatively small space like a motor home I was curious why someone would choose vinyl planks over tiles.

Rusty I can see that it weighs less. My MH has tile in the kitchen and bath areas and I see a lot of the new MH with all Tile. Is flexibility really that big an issue ?
You can actually get a membrane that you put down and then glue the tile to that it actually gives a lot more flexibility to tile. The questions I am curious about is the slide area. Someone mentioned what kind of slid you have makes a difference. I do not know how to find the answer to that or what kind of slides there are.

Lots of folks don't like the cold, there are some where the extra weight of tile impacts their CCC. The grout cracks, etc.
If you like tile- have at it. watch the weight

5 different kind of slides:
1- rollers- attached to the slide
2- rollers- embedded in the floor
3- no rollers- unit "floats"- like Prevost over the floor
4- skids- unit slides over the main floor.
5- combination of 1 and 2
