Frp is fiberglass reinforced panel it is used in some commercial bathrooms it is almost indestructible we removed the yuckey carpet and did the whole floor with the tile and we use throw rugs in the living area you can cut the fiberglass with a rotozip tool or tin snips

I have remodeled our whole motorhome and remodeled some select areas in my in-laws motorhome. Both floors were covered with 12"x12" granite tiles that where 3/8" thick. I glued them to the floor using a flexible latex adhesive that will have some give as the motorhome floor flexes. The grout is a sanded latex grout that will flex if there is any movement between the tile without splitting or cracking. As for weight there are so few tiles used to cover the floor that the additional weight is minimal. As for comfort on your feet; we have a heater duct that keeps the tiles warm when it's cold outside and the tiles are naturally cool when it is hot. We have also traveled about 5000 miles since the remodel and have had zero issues with the floor or counter top that we did. Here are a few photos of the floors in each of them.

The photos of the dark granite is from our motorhome and the lighter color is from the in-laws. The photos of the in-laws is before the toilet was reinstalled. The lighter color floor would resemble your particular situation better. For the transition we laid the laminate flooring throughout the whole motorhome first, then we laid the tile so that it was over lapping the laminate. For the small gap between the two floors we used a darker caulk. The photos were taken before the caulking was added, but if you would like to see the finished product I could probably get them to take some more photos.

Bilito- was that step up from the hall original to your Winnie bathroom?

I guarantee I would trip on that and smash my skull open during some 3 a.m. my-eyes-are-still-closed potty call...

My wife wanted the darker granite really bad and I had doubts, but we are both very happy with the end result. We also did the kitchen counter top and the end cabinets in the bedroom with the same granite. The darker granite is harder to polish than the lighter granite after it's been bull nosed, but looks great.

toadog- what kind of motor home do you have? what does your current bathroom look like?

Bilito- have you made any progress since you took the pictures in the original post?

Yea that step up was original, the drain line from the tub ran across the floor to join with the stack from the vanity sink, I did move the step up to the potty back about one inch to get some extra room to stand and dry

Thanks for all the pics, we decided to use vinyl tiles, self stick, but the folks at the HD said they will not stick very good to bare wood and suggested that I used tile cement to glue them down. I decided without wifely consent to tile the risers one color and the tread area a diff color. The wife actually likes it, she said says they are earth friendly neutral colors. I say they are Tan and brown

Got our new vanity today, It is just mocked up in the pics, gotta make a few adjustments to the rear support frame for plumbing and what not, but I think it is gonna look great, we also have a new Bravura Toilet in parchment on order, gotta make a run to the RV store to get new fixtures for the sink and shower, install the ceiling, vanair electric ceiling bathroom vent, get a new curved shower rod and curtains, window blinds and window curtain, medicine cabinet and decide where to install those shelves in the last picture. We are getting close, we almost have the dinette rebuilt too, another year or so should do it.
