New Flooring - anyone used this?

I'm about to pull the trigger on replacing the carpet in our 39z Bounder. I've bought some samples of Flexi-Tile, which I really like, but wonder if anyone has used this brand before. These tiles are much better quality that similar locking tiles at our local Lowes. The tiles are 20" x 20" x 3/16 thick. The edges interlock tightly, making a really nice seam and they can be floated over the sub-floor. At $4.50 per SF, they're not cheap but they would go down quickly. Any thoughts, good or bad? The Fieldstone color is our choice but they all look good.
Flexi-Tile Perfection Floor Tile Natural Stone Slate Tile 20" x 20" x 5MM | Perfection Floor Tile Natural Stone Marble Tile 20" x 20" x 5MM | PVC Tile, Hidden Interlocking | PVC Tile | PVC Tiles | PVC Floor Tiles

Looks good, are the Tiles a soft material? If you end up not liking it removal is easy...

I put down 12"x12" vinyl self adhesive tiles that worked out at about $1 per foot. Yours are obviously much tougher so I guess it is up to you if you want to pay more for an industrial grade surface. They certainly look nice and easy to install as well as looking good.

Take into account, the coefficient of expansion. Many RVs will be exposed to extreme temperature changes during the year, from 100+ to -20 or lower when in storage.
PVC is ~3.5"/100' for a 100 degree change. 28 feet of tile would move ~ 1 inch

We used this brand for all of our bay floors. Gray coin dot style. After being abused since about 2005, the tiles have only minor scratches. The bay floors take much more punishment than the RV interior floor would.

I loved how easy the installation went.

I agree. I've had tan coin dot covering a portion of our basement game room for many years and it still looks like new. However, I wouldn't count on having invisible joints. We really like it for this application. It's tough. I think it will outlast most coaches.

cheers,
Joopy

Right, the edges are slightly beveled which would look like a small grout line.

beware- large format tile is fine in a home, with the edges and curves in a coach it is murder to install it. I will not install large format tile, again
