Well the cold finally got my TT I picked it up this morning from storage and got it home and the vinyl floor was ripped. Don't know if the extended warranty will cover it but I figure I would pull out the toilet dinette and couch and lay in a laminate floor. Any one do this ? any advice ? pros cons ? pictures? I have a 2008 Jayco 27BHG2
In the years I've been on this forum I think I've read about vinyl floors ripping from the cold three or four times. The report is usually a split of many feet right down the middle of the floor.
Trailers are built from the bottom up. So the floor is laid down and then the cabinets are built on top of it. With this construction I can see the floor shrinking but the builtins hold the edges down. Eventually the middle gives and it tears.
I think if you lay a new floor it will probably be fine as there won't any fixtures to hold the edges so it can shrink as it gets cold and then expand back out as it warms up.

Megadiesel don't bash Jayco for the floor, we have a Keystone and the same thing happened two years ago.The vinyl just can't take the temp. swings up here in the great white north.I think the only thing we can do is replace the flooring with a floating product such as Pergo or Allegro snap.If you have a Costco near you I just spotted some snap together tile there I'm putting in come spring.
