Looks Great!
I hope to replace our carpet with laminate in the future. But with only 16k miles on our 1997 RV, the previous owners took great care of it and it still looks like new....

Looks great.

Flooring is my next big project. Thinking I will remove the ceramic tile and replace it with LVT. except in the drivers area, going with carpet there to absorb some of the road vibration as I drive.

I like the look of the ceramic but just doesn't seem to hold up well. Grout lines crack and have 3 or 4 tiles cracked now.

I used Swiftlock from Lowes , the color is Soft Plum. Its not slippery at all. Love it so far. I glued all the tongue and groove edges. It did not lock together all that great. Used construction adhesive on the steps. I left some pieces in the rain and it did not seem to hurt them. Just wanted to see what would happen.

Do you have a slide and if so does the rollers leave any marks on the flooring? Great job - by the way!

Thanks. No slides. This stuff is tough. You can get a sample chip, take it home and see if it scratches. That's what we did.

We used the Armstrong Swift-Loc vinyl planks as well- while I like the floor a great deal, I will use some adhesive on the backside the next floor I lay.

It has stayed together beautifully side to side, (we laid it lengthwise) but we have some separation at the ends in the part of the coach that has the most flex- consequence of leaving a gap at the front and back that the directions call for.

Senior Chief - we are using Swiftlock from Lowes as well. The floor is supposed to arrive tomorow. So would you suggest not leaving the gap like the instructions say?

You should leave a gap. It's all pretty susceptible to expansion and without a gap you get humps. As a contractor I've been called in several times to fix a homeowner's DIY job that had that problem. You may get away with a smaller gap seeing as there's not as large an area in an RV that's expanding.

New flooring looks great!!

Would you recommend using glue on the back of all this flooring? or would you just spread glue on the floor?

It is NOT glued to the subfloor. It is glued on the tongue and groove parts that lock together. In fact I put down a sheet of the recommended underlayment that is a real thin foam and plastic. Not sure I needed that but it is quieter I think. And lets it expand and contract easier. I'm sure it's a tiny bit.
