I just finished putting in a vinyl flooring in mine that is a snap-lock plank type that is just like laminate, just a bit more flexible, waterproof, and went right over the old floor. I really like the new look that it gave my unit. It is a good do-it yourself project and you will get real good at working with radius corners. I have an album here I just posted to show the impact a new floor can make. Good luck.

I put a "floating floor in my old MH and ended up taking it out. It just moved too much even with a very thin Styrofoam pad underneath.

I don't know I decided to try it after removing the old carpet and ended up replacing the floor with carpet once again. It may just be the narrow size of my old small MH but it did move around a lot and was cold maybe flat on the floor would be OK. The way I figure carpet its warm it's quiet it feels good on my feet that's not some thing I can say about hardwood or linoleum. It's not for a family with kids at the beach but for me it's fine.

Well I was thinking the floating floor because we are taking it to the river for fly fishing and the mountains of Wv are full of red clay mud. Also, we plan to competition hunt from it too, and I figured that we will be in and out with muddy boots on, so was just thinking the floating floor would be easier to keep clean. I don't want it to move and I don't want to put linoleum down.

We put laminate down in our 276-SR after the vinyl shrunk very badly when it was removed to do some floor repairs. We love it. Full disclosure - It is a square pattern very similar to the vinyl, 1'x3' pieces.

A lot of that floating flooring does not like to be wet that maybe an issue with mud and water. In my case after all the carpet work no shoes allowed inside!

I agree, but in my case, I used a waterproof vinyl tile. My tile has a rubbery feeling to the back and does not slide around (I also have it bolted down by the dining table and tacked by the door threshold). My son is great about leaving his shoes outside. Problem is he is barefoot much of the time out there...

I'm thinking I'll sand the current linoleum a bit, trim the curly edges where the staples hold it down, install vinyl tile (not square) and run a cool trim all around. I am usually in the sw where it's dry, but plan a visit to the NW soon. Will buy a small entry rug. Photos of the in progress are in my album. I like to make art at my dinette but also want to set up a reading nook with a reclining chair (any suggestions?) small space, big ideas. T1850.
