Cork Flooring in RV???

Has anyone ever used cork flooring in an RV? I ask because cork has been used for decades in high-traffic locations such as librarys and post offices. Generally speaking, today it comes in 1/2" thick interlocking tiles and a wide array of colors. Advantages... 1) super durable when installed correctly, 2) resists moisture, doesn't stain, cleans easily, 3) never cold like ceramic, 4) forgiving on feet and dropped items, 5) natural sound deadening qualities, probably better than a foam pad and carpeting.

It seems this would be the ideal flooring in an RV. Maybe somebody has tried it and can speak from experience.

Thanks

RW

I Dont have any experience with it in RVs but I am the facilities manager for an office building. We use cork flooring in a lot of areas, including our loading area, there are dollies and pallet jacks rolling over them constantly, as well as them getting soaked and dirty and they hold up amazing. We just take a couple ounces of a mild degreaser and mix it in a mop bucket once every 6 months. They look brand new.
