I agree, although Jim's floor certainly did not feel warm when I saw it. Of course that was on a late October night, cold, dark, snow around the trailer which was in storage unheated. I've always thought maybe Jim could do a cork floor in ours, doesn't he kind of hint at that in this thread?

I could, but the Scotch I would want for payment, might make it quite expensive.

Thanks. On my 5.0 I will be getting, I plan to use a vinyl flooring we pick out, at least for a while, as I have A LOT of other stuff to get done once I get the trailer, but maybe in a year or two I will do cork again. That was a great flooring.

You've already put down the deposit. In fact, there is still some left in the account.

Morning, Jim -

I'm considering a different vinyl flooring for the 5.0. Since you're in the trades and have experience with different brands of flooring, I thought I'd ask for any specific products to focus on or, avoid? Thanks (again, and again, and again ...).
