This happened to a 10 year old TT that we purchased used. At the time we purchased same the vinyl floor did not show any signs of cracks. So it survived many cold winters up until we had it for one winter. Near as I can tell our problem was we had it on jacks during the winter which must have stressed the vinyl and when it turned cold ... whamo.... anyway, that's my theory.

Not sure what I'm going to replace it with yet. I guess we have been lucky as this is the original flooring, 2006 model.

How warped was the floor when on jacks? Any curvature enough to damage the flooring, it likely destroying the frame and walls.

So my little old RV is currently gutted and awaiting for warmer weather to seal the roof, then to start on the floor. We have been planning on doing vinyl sheeting, since we're trying to do this on a budget. Then I saw this post.

We're in upstate NY, so there's definitely a wide swing in temps, and expansion/contraction will definitely be there. Since it's a remodel, most of the larger floor items are staying put (fridge, one cabinet) - it's a smaller RV, and a fairly small space the flooring would be going on, so I'm wondering if there's a way to swing doing the sheeting still, instead of the more expensive plank. Glue all over? Leave slightly larger gap/space on the edges, covered with a wider trim? Any tricks or wisdom you could pass on?

We did ours with the fake hard wood flooring, but for the bathroom area we found a vinyl flooring that came in strips about 4 feet long by 6 inches with a self stick back with a sub base you put down also in vinyl, so it ended up being a floating floor, was easy to cut with tin snips, and just left a gap at the edges for 1/4 round.[image]
