Vinyl plank flooring

Has anyone had experience with the 10 MM Vinloc vinyl plank flooring sold by Windsor Plywood in Canada ?
I would like to replace all the flooring ( laminate and carpet ) with this product.
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.

vinyl plank flooring

Thank you for your comments ajpaero. How did these hold up with the temperature changes? We experience temps of minus 35 C to plus 35 C. That is my biggest concern. I have removed all the carpet and old wood laminate. I will glue the first two rows of planks under the slide to hold it from moving when the slide is going in or out, and let the rest float.
Thanks again.
Cheers

Hi Tubless.
Our temps don't get below -8 C, so I don't know about your low range, but +35 C is not unusual here in Arizona. That said, I have not seen any degradation of the material in our temp extremes. I did not glue the first 2 rows under the slide because the carpet was thicker than the laminate. The slide does not move the laminate.
We have driven over 11,000 miles since we installed this floor and it is holding up well. Even the dogs have not managed to damage it.

Hi Tubless, I did put down the Vinyl plank flooring with the 1" over lap joint in my 98 American Dream last spring and I live in Moncton NB. I want in it yesterday getting ready to leave for the south US after Easter, had it store outside under a RV cover, floor is just like I had install it yesterday. Like the other guy said, it way easier to maintenance then carpet. Our weather here in the Maritime been really crazy this winter, from minus 25 to plus 10 in 48 hrs to minus 20 again, but I seen no sign that it affect the flooring. Good product to me for this type of use.
