One of my projects for this summer was going to be pulling out the carpet in the motorhome and installing Pergo flooring. However, I just found out about Allure Flooring at Home Depot. I can see a lot of advantages to this flooring over Pergo and sure does look like it would be a whole lot easier to install. It cuts with a razor knife versus a wood saw and the pieces simply stick together. It appears to be just as durable as Pergo and if you get tired of it it looks like it would be fairly easy to pull it out and put in something different. And it's about a buck a SF cheaper than Pergo, but for a motorhome size install the cost isn't really that big a factor to me. The ease of install is and the fact that this stuff is waterproof looks really nice. Unlike Pergo that may be ruined if you get too much water on it.

Anybody installed this yet in a motorhome?

There are tons of people that have done exactly what you are thinking of doing. Just do a quick search and it will keep you busy reading for a few days.


My advice is worth exactly what you paid for it.

You know, I only started a new thread because I was told that this was a "new" product that Home Depot just started carrying. I assume since it was new there wouldn't be too much on here. But I took your advice and did a search and I do see it already mentioned including one person who said he installed it two years ago. I guess it isn't as new as I was led to believe. That's actually a good thing because now I can check with people who have had it installed for a few years and see how it's holding up.

Best of luck. From what I have read in the past, it is a good product well suited for our use (RV).

I installed it in my house four years ago.. liked it. I started with pergo and it is very unforgiving in corners and angles. At least for a non professional. Allure was so much easier to put down. I also plan to rip out my motor home carpet and do the allure this year.

This will be our third summer on our install. It still looks great and was very easy to install.

I did the entire first floor of my 2500 sf house in Pergo all by myself a couple of years back. Talk about one heck of a massive project. If I had known how hard it was going to be I would have hired somebody. And by hard I don't mean difficult, just lots of hard work and lots of time spent on the knees. This Allure looks like it also requires a lot of knee time, but at least it doesn't require a mallet and tools to get the pieces to lock together. I may do the second floor in Allure.

I was just looking through the install instructions on the Home Depot website and found this:

"Allure is for interior installations and only in temperature controlled environments. You can not install Allure in Solariums/Sunrooms, over Carpets, or any Exterior Application including seasonal porches, camping trailers and boats."

Now it doesn't say Class A motorhomes, but it does say camping trailers. I assume they say this because most people don't keep the heat and/or AC on when the RV is in storage. Seems like the Allure people are saying their product doesn't work well if installed in a place that may get extreme temps. Any of you people that have installed this stuff seen any problems from the RV being in storage and getting really hot or really cold? My RV is stored in California so the interior doesn't get any really extreme temps when in storage, but I would imagine it could range from freezing to 100 degrees depending on the time of the year.
