Luxury Vinyl Tile

We are getting ready to rip out the old carpet and tile and install full luxury vinyl tile. Called the RV manufacturer and they didn't recommend full ceramic tile due to the increased weight, so the LVT should be equal to what we have now. Has anyone had experience with Armstrong Alterna or CeraRoma or a similar high end LVT? We plan on installing it with a grout line. Any issues with durability or cracking?

Thanks, Dave

I'll be curious to hear the responses...I've had to replace my Armstrong floating wood laminate floors in my home twice now. I'm pretty much not a big fan of Armstrong right now.

Ought to work fine. Many new RVs come with that type of floor rather than ceramic. I've used them in my home with good results but be sure to follow the installation instructions. Might even call/email Armstrong and ask - they are very good with project advice.

We have Alterna ordered for an installation that we will have done in the Spring. We'll be removing carpet from the front of the coach and ceramic tile from the kitchen and dining area and replacing it with the vinyl.

We took out our carpet and installed Villa Stone, a marble dust and resin product. The mastic used is the same mastic used to install outdoor carpet because it will withstand below freezing temperatures and very hot, too. Stays flexible, just right for the extreme conditions that motor homes may have though the year. The grout is sand and resin. Once all is installed the floor looks just like ceramic tile. The hardest task was to remove all the staples used to install the carpet. The weight is just about the same as the carpet and pad that was removed and 1/8th the weight of ceramic tile.
