Gorgeous! I bet the extra padding and insulation are a really nice bonus too

Thanks everyone. We are quite pleased with it.

How about I get right on it after the wine tour on Friday? No guarantee of straight lines though.

Would the wine be given before, or after, the job is done?

It definitely is cushier, and warm underfoot. I imagine it will add some to the insulation as well.

I like the color coordination. That looks a lot harder install than my wooden floor, good job.

Thanks Jim. It was actually very easy, just took a bit more time than floating.

Being a renovation contractor, my mind always has me doing a full bore job.

I do need to add, that you really don't have to do two layers, that was just an extra I decided on. Though it only cost me about $50 for the extra cork, and while I was at it less than two hours time.

Looking good!! Nice idea on the extra bottom layer. Should be a lot warmer that the vinyl.

Great job Jim! Very smart to remove the vinyl for the best possible bond.

Typical of cork, when you stand on it your tootsies immediately warm up.

Not only was it necessary for a good bond, I also pulled out a good 10 pounds worth of dead weight.

Jim,
Something I meant to ask, when you reinstalled the table mounts, did you use the same screws?
I did with mine and I moved the table about 2" aft so that it doesn't rub against the front vinyl.
But now I'm thinking, using the same screws, short that they are, the table may not be secured as before. So I have been towing with the table down, but I'd like to tow with the table in the upright. Do you think with the new floor set up you and I have that the table bottom is securely attached to the trailer floor, not just our new floor. I would hate to find the table lying on it's side upon arrival with the floor torn up. I'm contemplating adding some bungee straps to secure the table from moving while in the upright position. What are your thoughts?

Jim,

Using 2 layers is a great idea for added insulation. How tough is the surface to puncture from a stone in a shoe sole etc?
