new flooring

Help! the original vinyl flooring material in my 2009 Airstream is looking bad. Pulling away and up on the edges and showing random "puckers" at a few locations. There is not a water problem. I wrote Airstream and they claim that this is a result of cold/hot weather cycles. "Easy to fix"....blah, blah, blah. Whatever..... but it looks bad. The Airstream dealer I bought the unit at (on consignment) quoted a price of $3000-3500 to fix it. That ain''t gonna happen.
I'm really disappointed that a newer Airstream is experiencing this problem but, regardless, it has to be dealt with. So I'm looking for advice on a suitable replacement material that would give the floor an attractive hardwood appearance. This trailer is only used by me, no regular visits by kids or pets so it doesn't have to be super durable and I'd probably use small area rugs in locations of greatest use.
Thanks in advance for any and all help

I have 'wood look' beauflor that is advertised to handle hot and cold weather better. So far so good. Maybe replace the original floor with beauflor.
