Snap together vinyl floor

I am replacing my carpet with vinyl flooring. Does anyone know if the slide going in and out will scratch the vinyl?

It all depends. I put the vinyl plank in my 05 Monaco and it did do a minor scratch. So now I lay a scatter rug at each end and one in the middle where the slide will be when fully closed. We do really like the flooring.

Very likely, but it depends on the height of the new flooring, the type of slide mechanism (roller, skid, floating, etc), and slide angle & height adjustment. Getting at least some scratch or wear areas is pretty common, but often can be mostly alleviated by placing a thin plastic or metal sheet in the area for the slide to travel over when moving in/out.

I keep a stash of extra wood floor panels at our son's house and will replace some scratched boards every couple of years. One advantage of a floating floor.
