I want something that is waterproof and can stand large temperature fluctuations. This is in a 33' Dolphin 1999 with one slide.
Any help appreciated.
My wife hates carpet so much that we have no carpet in our home. She insisted that the carpet be removed on each of our RV's. She was right, because hard floors while boondocking are far easier to maintain. On our 28 ft TT, I used vinyl tile, on our 30 ft. MH I used vinyl plank and on our present 36' MH, Laminated Plank. I'm now a Half-Assed Expert on laying hard floors.
I used 10 MM Laminate Plank on our 96 RollsAir. I prefer the Laminated plank because it interlocks and if you would like, you can use sealant on every joint as you install to waterproof. Vinyl plank is approx. 1/16" thick and butt joined and won't give you any water resistance at the seams.
There are some laminated planks available that have an overlap of approx. 1 inch for water resistance. I've never used that type.
Installation was fast and easy. I undercut door frames to give a smooth appearance. Cutting the 10 mm" thick Laminate plank was a bit difficult. I used a table saw for some cuts and power miter saw on others. For rounded corners, I used a hole saw. All in all, it came out very nice.
