"Peel-n-Stick" products in a Boler

Hi All, first-time posters here...

Has anyone used peel-and-stick tiles directly onto ensolite?
We would like to tile the kitchen-area wall of our '76 Boler with this product, and don't know if it will stay put on the elephant skin.... Peel and Stick Backsplash | Idaho | Smart Tiles

Also, we are planning on covering the original floor (in quite good shape) with peel-and-stick vinyl planks for a wood-grain look. Does anyone know if the original boler floors are too textured to maintain proper contact with this product? I've seen instructions for plywood, but not for our fiberglass flooring. https://www.lowes.ca/vinyl-flooring/..._g1463068.html

Thanks for helping out a couple newbies!

I am curious about this too! I also need to scrape the table and cupboards to remove the old wood grain plastic stuff that's peeling off and replace it with something durable and attractive.

can't see having much luck sticking right to the Ensolite without putting some sort of backer first and you may have difficulty removing them if they don't look right and I would avoid using a stick on or glue on floor and opt for some type of floating floor such as allure or something simular.

If the surface being stuck to is clean and the peal-and-stick adhesive will hold to the ensolite, you MAY be ok. I personally would not expect good results (but that's just me)


The fiberglass floor texture is fairly aggressive so the adhesive is only going to have contact with about 50% of the floor, unless the peal-and-stick adhesive is fairly thick and can compress to reach the bottom of the textured floor in your Boler, it may or may not work well enough. Again, the floor surface must be very clean including the crevices between the textured high spots.


I say pick a spot under the main table, out of normal view and give it a test. Worst case, it won't hold, best case it will. You won't know until you try.


If contact cement is compatible with the peel-and-stick adhesives, you may be able to augment the system and improve stick ability. But again, do a test before committing.

It's not just "will it stick", it's will it stick to a vertical surface when the trailer is locked up and the summer heat reaches 90F?
And, when it comes to the floor, Allure does not recommend their product for use in RVs and summer cabins.

Your only going to know if you try.


Again, test it under the dining table (on the ensolite and on the floor).


Boldly go where no Boler has gone before...

"Peel-n-Stick" products in a Boler

I've put in Allure flooring in both my Surfside and now the Biggar, no problems with it.
I've also put in the peel and stick tiles but my Biggar doesn't have Ensolite. I have a fiberglass
panel behind my sink and just stuck it to that. My advise would be to put up very thin
paneling first, then stick your tiles to that.

People have used all kinds of things to protect the areas behind the sink and stove. Real tile (flexible caulk) tin ceiling materials (both metal and plastic), stainless steel panels, etc. As some have said, you won't know until you try.


As far as the floor, there's so little space you need to protect (in the grand scheme of things). Joy A. has put down a single sheet of linoleum right over the carpet. It's not anchored down... think "floating" and has had zero problems with curling, etc. You can purchase a remnant piece dang cheap. It's easily cut with scissors (or lino knife). Use newspaper, cardboard, etc. to create a pattern of the floor. Easy peasy! The nice part is if you get tired of the pattern it's easily replaced.


With Allure, you just need to be very careful of moisture. So if you camp in the rain, have children or dogs... think wet feet/paws.


Best of luck!

Thanks for the advice, everyone!
Looks like it's time now to start testing things out....

Made a new table from 3/4 ply and trimmed it with oak. Some wood stain and several coatings of marine varnish and we now use it outside as the bed is now permanent.

Donna, the reason I put Allure down is because I have a dog with wet paws. Lol
It's made of vinyl and sticks together, very durable for a pet. I have it in my house
and if water spills on it, no problem.

I don't know what I was thinking! Obviously I was not...

There is a whole slew of new waterproof click plank flooring at all the major home centres for between 2-4 dollars a sq foot that is extremely durable and well suited for trailers . After 2 floods in my basement and having to completely replace the laminate floors I've replaced them with vinyle click flooring and couldn't be more pleased to how they look and stand up to water and wear.
