Cover materials for the basement floor.

I planning to change 2-3 bays of basement floor on my 2006 Select 45DS14 (to fix rotting from a leak that the previous owner didn't fix in a timely manner). I'm looking to source materials above (carpet), and below (moisture barrier?) the plywood flooring. Any recommendations?

Carpet: Marine grade, commonly used on patio/pontoon boat decks. Make sure it can handle the occassional oil/fuel spill. There are tons of options on this, purchase what your budget allows, get the shortest fibers possible, and make sure it is NOT vinyl backed as any moisture in the compartment will find its way under there and stay!

Plywood: Marine grade, treated.

Barrier: There are, again, so many choices your head will spin. Make sure its non-breathable, and realitively thick. I've even seen Tyvek used, which is way too thin for undercarriage use.

Think you might even spray the underside with A PU bed liner - give yourself some protection - might catch the entire basement to prevent future damage.

JMHO,

1 - 4 x 8 Polystyrene plastic sheets. Easy to install, put drop light under the coach and all your cross braces are outlined so you can easily countersink stainless steel B& Nuts, then undercoat the bottom side, glue thin fabric to top surface.

@djnorton - The original basement floor is plywood. If I switch to Polystyrene plastic sheets will it flex more than 1" of plywood, causing problems with the basement slide trays?
