Will polyurethane flooring work in an RV without cracking?

SusieQJeanBernice H


I'm renovating my RV and want a cheap and durable flooring option. I've seen several good ideas, such as paper bag floors or painting them and then covering it with polyurethane. Since an RV shifts while it's on the road, is this a good option for an RV?

    Look at Trafficmaster Allure plank flooring. Goes down easily and becomea a solid waterproof floor as you walk on it. Comes in wood textures, including barn wood and also in tile looks. We used in in a travel trailer and are very happy. Waterproof was important to us and this seems perfect so far.

    It should be durable enough for your floors.

    Actually any piece of vinyl flooring should be cheap enough. Or stick on tiles. Allure planking is wonderful...had it on my floors..dont know if you need to level the floor tho. But if you can use ploy in a house..should be able to use in rv. Just be sure to use enough coats. What was on there originally? Vinyl? If shifting and breaking was a probelm wouldn't it have shown up Then? Our friends did stick vinyl tiles in kitchen of their rv.

    We used Trafficmaster Allure vinyl strips which are fastened to each other, not the floor itself. We put them directly over the existing flooring. The flooring is waterproof and has held up for two seasons with no wear or damage, and it is easy to cut and install.

    We used vinyl plank in our motor home and performed beautifully for 2 years now.
