We briefly thought of laminate, but with a slide didn't figure it would be thin enough. The first thing I thought of was the insurance, and the fact that we didn't renew it after the settled with us on a total from hail damage. You can barely notice the damage so we bought it back. We failed to re-insure with existing damage. Bonehead move on our part.

Split floor repaired

Insurance will not cover damage from extreme cold. Here are the pics of the new flooring. NOT a DIY project, I paid, but I really like the results.

Almost all RV manufactures perimeter glue the flooring down.. they say it is a weight saving issue BS it is cost.. and that is what causes the cracking.. When repalcing make sure they glue the entire floor..

Hey there Seann 45

We glued the entire floor. My installer agreed with you.

I had the same thing happen to mine. My insurance company won't cover it.

Unhappy Yet another Jayco Flooring Rip

I ran into same problem on my a 2008 Jayco 28BHS trailer. While trailer was locked/stored for winter the vinyl floor ripped/cracked from front bed all the way to the back bathroom. When I contacted Jayco they gave standard response that they offer a two year limited warranty and defects in material and workmanship are not covered after that period. Based on number similar postings on owner forums, it's pretty obvious that this is a case of either improperly installing the flooring or selecting a product that isn't suitable for a trailer. It's a shame, I'm guessing if Jayco had spent $50 on higher quality flooring, I wouldn't be looking at an estimated $1500-$2000 repair bill to replace the floor.

I'm not so sure it can all be blamed on Jayco. I may be naÔve, but I think they've been trying over the years to find the right combination of product and install method. Based on our installers advice, we chose glued down entirely with a fiberglass backed vinyl. Time will tell if he is smarter than Jayco. Our install was only $700.00, found the vinyl for $0.99/sq. ft. Be sure to find an honest private contractor and get a good rate on your product.

If you haven't already, check it out. We love it.

We just discovered the exact same issue with a crack right inside the front door of our Jayflight 29 FBS. We purchased our trailer over this past winter and have not even had a chance to use it yet. Right now i slapped down a nice strip of duct tape to keep it from getting worse but I know with this being right inside the door this is a temporary and very ugly fix.

I have thought about putting in a thin wood laminate (this was going to be a project a couple years down the road but I guess it has moved up on the priority list). Does anyone have suggestions on what to use, I assume the floating tongue and groove type would be the easiest to install with a 1/4 round trim to hide the edges.

Any suggestions or recommendations?
