The floor is a dark grey slate look vinyl tile.. the original floor was in perfect condition but I needed to secure the black water tank below the floor..tricky to do as the floor is sandwiched FG with a honeycomb core. I tried taking the old vinyl out by ironing to soften the adhesive but it didn't work well enough to give a descent pattern..I did eventually get it out but it took some doing. I would have used new sheet vinyl but we liked the tile and it was a little easier to fit than making a full size pattern for the sheet vinyl.
I've looked at some other options for a floor finish but found most added too much weight
to the trailer. If it were possible to strip all of the adhesive, using one of the speckled epoxy floor finishes ie. those used for concrete would give a durable floor, no worry about floods and very little weight
In floor heating sounds like an excellent idea considering how small the floor is.. please post some details pics of the installation..
To anyone attempting to bolt fasten through the floor, best fill the honeycomb in the area of the bolt with resin to spread the load.
