We have a 2008 Tropical and our tile is called ceramic but is definitely an out-of-the box 12" peel and stick with the grouting stamped/colored on to the square. Seems OK until you look closely. We joke that the pattern includes black stains. If yours is broken and you need replacement you might check the back in case there is a maker stamped on. You also might find another RV that has the same tiles. After this amount of time it will be hard to match replacements if that is the intent.

Tile

I was in hope of removing carpet and replacing with tile. Your suggestion of removing one and looking at back is good. But of course if unavailable I'll have to redo the whole floor.
Thanks for info. I attach a pic of my tile.

You got nicer tile! Luck of the draw I guess. Our carpet in the bedroom and under the dinette is looking very shabby and we were thinking of replacing it with tile too. It sat unused for most of its life but the carpet looks worn out. If we did that there are a number of nice looking transitions available at the Home Despot et all. A little voice tells me that there may be carpet back there for sound and heat insulation from that diesel and or the uninsulated dinette slide. I might just get good carpet instead.

Tile

Maybe lucky, maybe not ?
My plan is to leave carpet in dinette, under slides and in bedroom. It is in good condition. Also, eases the job (basically lazy).
In my case, it's the living area that takes the punishment.
This will be a winter job and a virus diversion.
BTW, I have a Tropical T399.

Thanks again, Gary in Texas

Ahhh... We have tile in the living/dining area already. We have the 33 which makes boondocking and small parks easier. That carpet does not hold up well! Good luck.
