Allure Flooring in my 83 Scamp-16

I'm very happy with the way it went down (fast-easy ~4hrs) in my scamp 16 ...Thrilled the way it looks. Yes I read all the pro/cons and whining on the various RV forums about Allure flooring ...we'll see how it performs with the temperature extremes here in CO?

I did make sure it's floating even in the dinette I left the bench seats sitting on the Allure but didn't screw them down through the Allure ...but the seat are fastened on sides/top-back so they aren't going anywhere and the floor can expand/contract all it wants!

I laid it side to side in dinette and front to back in main living area. Reason? was easier in the dinette and less waste. Kick boards under cabinets I plan to use piece of black painted plywood to hide float gap and some 1/4-round in open areas where gap is visible (entry and bunks) ...used almost 2-boxes for total job.

Will report back in a year if I've issues with adhesive separating and gaps etc ...but for now it's a huge improvement over the ugly/smelly carpet! Took longer to remove and prep floor than installing the Allure! Also the design I chose Country Pine will pretty much hide any gaps that may decide to appear ...time will tell?

From now on a dust pan-broom cleanup and a few throw rugs will make this place a tidy home on the road for this old goat.

Thank you for sharing! Love the look of the pine! We have some left-over flooring from a basement remodel. It is floating panels. Not sure we have enough to do the whole floor, and they now only sell it is 12" squares, so will have to see if it is a true 'match' for color. After our plumbing & rewire job is complete, the original carpet on on '84 19' Scamp is my next project. Well, after I finish reconditioning the exterior shell.

The new floor looks great! I went the cheap route and got very inexpensive laminate. It's survived two years in Minnesota so far, but I'd like to have something more water resistant like the Allure. Some day.
I also enjoyed the pics of your goats enjoying the flora, and the distant mountain views. Colorado is beautiful.

I just put in some country pine allure in my scamp 13 also. I second everything OP stated

For $42 and spares leftover it's hard to beat.

Brilliant product
