Has anyone replaced their vinyl flooring? Our TT is 10 years old and this past winter the floor cracked (where we think the glue was sparse) We are going to use peel and stick 36" long wood type flooring, and the compound that you roll on to make the flooring adhere better.
Has anyone had an experience with this type of flooring they are willing to share? Thank you in advance...
I have never seen it glued down from the factory. Usually it is loose laid so it can float and the walls and cabinets are holding it in place. Easiest way is replace it with either a single sheet or laminate. Cut old linoleum out around the edge and use it as a pattern. Hold it down around the edges with some base shoe or quarter round trim. Should only take a few hours. I can't imagine there is a glue made that will hold the tile in place with the huge temperature swing it may see. I've done 3 of mine in this manner. The laminate really looked nice and wasn't much work either except for a lot of cutting.

I used Allure in my TT. It was easy to cut and put in place. I just cut along the cabinets and wall and pulled the old stuff up then laid the Allure down according to directions. Along the edges I taped the walls/cabinets/floor to leave a small gap and filled it with a color matching caulking.
If you have a spot where the Allure might only be 3 or less widths wide (hallway) use some floor glue to keep those pieces as well as the few around, stuck in place. Everything that I have read, and experienced, shows that there just isn't enough bond with a few strips and you will get lateral pull and separation.

IN my OFF-ROAD POPUP I came up with some of the 2-foot square carpet squares some dude was throwing away. Looked great using the dark blue carpet colors on the floors and the green color under the tent beds flooring... Was warm and snug over the vinyl flooring. No more cold floors getting out of bed...
I only have one drawback doing this... It sure does track in alot of dust and crunched up leaves haha... You never win...

I would think twice before going with the peel and stick, I am in the process now of removing my peel and stick along with the old vinyl that I had put down 2 yrs ago. With temp variations they would buckle then shrink causing the grout line to be very sticky and attract dirt and junk.I never had one release but couldnt stand the sticky between the tiles. I have put down a 100% vinyl locking plank called Swiftlock from Lowes and love it. It locks and floats like laminate.
