And, those local contractors (I have hired several over the years) will definitely do flooring in an RV. I'd stay far far away from RV dealers for such things. Look up local flooring companies, or remodeling contractors and let them take a look at your RV floor. I just had my house remodeled and have no doubt my contractor would lay a floor in my RV for a very reasonable price. In addition to the rest of the house, he only charged $200 per bedroom to lay waterproof laminate.

Exactly. This is the way to do it. There are a lot of very talented flooring pros out there who have the tools and the skill to install flooring anywhere, including an RV. I laid my own engineered oak flooring several years ago and it was a lot of work (about 1500 sq ft) for me by myself with no experience. Too old to do that now (knees). I bet you're going to save a ton of money. Good luck!

The majority of installers are all self-employed. They base their income on charging by the square yard or square foot. The real deterrent to them not wanting to work in a coach is there is not much square footage vs the time it takes to do the job. Pay them by the day, instead. It is a skilled craft- pay them accordingly.

Thanks for the info on the sheet vinyl. I did some research and yeah, not a good fit for us in Colorado (at 7300ft); hits -20* here a couple times a year.


We'll see what the installer recommends, maybe us a vinyl plank with sufficient spacing for the temp swings instead.
