Floor replacement

I have a 2008 Essex and have several cracked tiles on the floor . I want to replace the flooring with something similar to the new coaches . Was just curious about what I can use that will handle the weight of the slide rollers or will any flooring take the weight .

Any flooring will take the weight of slide and rollers as long as the sub-flooring is a smooth flat surface.
Removing tiles may cause a problem doing that , smooth flat floor, even more so if you do yourself.
The factory will do at cost and maybe a floor company.
Here is a job done by a owner in his coach. #1 --- #2

That should make it easier! Just remember to use an epoxy latex grout. It is flexible and won’t crack. Doesn’t need sealing either!

I used the wood flooring that snaps together from Home Depot. No glue used as it is a floating floor and makes replacing boards easy if necessary.

First do you know why the floor tile cracked? Not something like frame flexing?

We are using interlocking vinyl tile in our Newmar but not having completed the job I can not speak to it either way.

Good Luck Q
