That's called a "Cove" molding.

Not being mean at all. Man asked for an opinion and I gave mine. For all I care the cracks can be stuffed with pine tops and rags. If you want a cheering section then ask for one . If you want an opinion don't feel hurt when you get one and don't like it.
Shoe mold or cove mold is more appropriate than quarter round in my opinion.

I have to agree with Doc, I read his original post and did not feel it was mean spirited. Just an opinion as what he thought would look better. I put 1/4 round in my SB home and it looks too big. Still there, to lazy to change it, or too many other things that need attention.

I didn't take it that Doc was being mean. Just stated his opinion. I have always been handy with woodworking and in my opinion, quarter round can be used at times and look very nice. To me the smaller you use the better. Also the shoe mold and the cove mold has it's place. It's up to the individual what he likes. Take a small piece of each one and place it by what you are working on and then decide.

I read a lot of different opinions and get a lot of different ideals on this forum and it is up to me if I want to go that route.

No ... road noise is about the same. Dirt and dust is far more manageable without carpet.

Thumbs up

What I did to the flooring was to add another 1/2" plywood, finished on one side to add to the 1/2" already down. I went with 12" tile flooring and actually the noise is far less. Even with all the furniture out of it. It is really quiet. I did the added 1/2" sub-floor because I felt a few places that felt soft. After removing the carpet the flooring was intact but I still added the plywood. Now nothing is soft when I walk on it.

Hope this helps

I applaud those that remodel their rigs, and figure out how to do it, I would never have thought to use colored caulk, I would have use the 1/4 round or cove molding or maybe just a piece of flat trim from Home Depot. I really do enjoy this forum and get a lot of help and info from it, just keep in mind with your answers that not everyone has unlimited funds or knows how to do every project as a professional would have. Rant over, and the flooring does look good and I may go that route when the carpet is wore out or am just tire of vacuuming...LOL How do you get the carpet out from under the slide(it must be out, got that)and get the wood under it..
We decided to keep the carpet in the bedroom area, under the slide, and over the doghouse and that area. We only laid the vinyl hardwood in the main area and bathroom. It looks great...I think. We don't have unlimited funds and I would NEVER think of trading the little rig (little to some, 31' is pretty big for my first!) that my dad took pride in owning and loved. He recently passed away and it was passed down to my husband and I from my mom and dad. I LOVE IT MORE THAN ANY $1M rig. LOVE! Anyway. I will post a picture but I have to do it from my phone. Will try to do a before and after.

We have lots more work to do but this is the floor. Trim work needed.

If you are adding plank type flooring, don't forget to leave space for expansion around the perimeter. Usually a 3/8" gap will do for the widths we are dealing with in MHs.

A cove type molding will cover this gap. If you do not leave a gap your floor will buckle as it expands and contracts with heat and humidity.

Nice looking floor BTW!
