New Flooring installation

Got tired of the disgusting carpet so I installed this floating vinyl plank flooring. Supposedly, it's waterproof. I have yet to install the quarter round but thought it quite an improvement. Now we'll see if it will hold up to the 100 degree temp swings.

Is that the congoleum vinyl? We installed it in some cabins with no heat over the winter, did have some issues since it really shrank and caused wrinkling issues when warmed up. I would be interesting to know your experiences with your product.

It's a Shaw flooring product and it interlocks rather than some sort of adhesive strip. I got it at Lowes but hesitate to recommend it until I see how it does through one complete hot/cold season cycle. It was easy to install and I left about 1/4" expansion at the perimeters (I figure that was ample since it was installed in 80 degree temps). I posted it now (cuz I like the way it looks) and will report next year on how it does.
I'm going to replace the crappy carpet on the slide with a better grade of commercial carpet. Can't do a hard surface due to the way the slide sub floor is constructed.

That should work better, The adhesive strip didn't allow for any movement. Looks great.

looks really nice! Was your previous floor all carpet or a combination of flooring/carpet?

Twas a combination of sheet vinyl and carpet (but mostly carpet). I've heard that RV manufacturers put sheet vinyl throughout then overlay with carpet, but that was not the case in my 5er. So, I also pulled up the vinyl which was easy cuz it was only glued down in a couple spots (I put baby powder down over the sticky "stuff" because it was impossible to get up and I didn't want the new flooring to stick to it). The most difficult part of removal was getting all the carpet staples out. I used a vice grips to pry them out.
