I used cork flooring in the bedroom. It is soft and warm underfoot.

It's 5/16" thick and pretty stiff stuff.

Really the dogs can’t scratch it ?

Is it just floating, what went under it and above the plywood BB installed ?

Yes really, I can send you a scrap if you want to play with it if you want. It has a very good wear layer. You can do fun things like rub coins on it and they wear down and leave no marks. It's got a satin kind of finish, not glossy smooth.

It's glued down to the BB subfloor, which is treated 5/8" plywood. In some places I used their recommended glue, which is like Elmer's glue (bad). In the areas that matter, like around the entryway, I used PL 3x like I should have everywhere else and it's stuuuuuck hard. It's very rigid there.

What did you do in areas where there is hidden access points in the floor to things below the floor?

I have one of those, the fuel tank stuff in the kitchen. I laid my plank down in there and cut a section out carefully. Then I shaved off the tongue/groove on one side and glued some supermagnets into the plywood subfloor. Then I glued some small scraps of sheet steel to the 8" long plank section. I also made a very small slot so I can put a small screwdriver under it and just pop it up. You can't tell that section comes out, it's a very tight fit and nearly invisible seams.

Ernie,
Do you have any recommendations on what to do under the driver and passenger chairs?

Leave the carpet or install the wood, also on my FC, the entry step is hinged (oil reservoir for the jacks) any suggestions on how I might go about spiffing up the entryway like badandy did on his coach?

Thanks, Jim
