Default Replacement Flooring?

I have a 2019 Cruiser RV Fun Finder Xtreme Lite TT. The flooring in front of the main door has buckled and the dealership tried to repair it but now there is glue smeared all over the linolieum and it is starting to buckle in our 100+ degree Texas weather! I'm going to contact Cruiser and see if I can purchase replacement from them, however, thought I'd ask if you knew where I could buy and how to match. Thank you!

Maybe try "luxury vinyl planking" (LVP)? It is not as fancy and expensive as it sounds -- and you can do it yourself. This is vinyl plank, not wood. It snaps into place. You cut the edges to fit. Very durable, easy to take care of.

The linoleum they use is nothing special. If you are going to buy it, just go to a local home improvement store and get a similar pattern.

Should we be (a little) wary of "luxury vinyl planking"? TrafficMaster (the brand sold by the big orange box and others) sells a nice, double thickness vinyl plank with adhesive joints so it is pretty water resistant. IIRC, they have a pretty narrow operating temperature range, like between 35 and 85F.

I think I'm remembering wrong about the upper limit but since many of us store these trailers, unheated, in northern winters, not tolerating freezing makes it a nonstarter.

That is a great point about freezing -- I think the manufacturer might know? If you go with vinyl plank, go with floating rather than glued down -- the floating flooring can move with the temp change, but the glued planks can't move and might warp with contraction??
