Flooring experiment - Cheap Puzzle Foam Tiles

Just installed temp flooring in a 1987 Lil Bigfoot (13.5ft). It probably won't last too long, depending on the usage but for under $60 (flooring and base boards), it will get me through the rest of the season and hopefully a bit longer. It is puzzle-foam matting, you can pick up almost everywhere. Installed quick, without glue. This tile was wood-grain looking, so it looks pretty good now... time will tell. It's soft and has some insulation factor. It's also easily removable/replaceable in sections. Worth a try. I'll update on it's durability.

Looks very attractive. I've never seen it in a wood-grain design… interesting. Where did you find it? I'll be interested how it performs over time. I'm thinking fine dirt could work its way between the joints, so you might need to take it up periodically to clean underneath. Thanks for sharing.

In my area (Alberta, Canada), I found it in Costco and Canadian Tire. Costco was only $22 for eight 24"x24" tiles (just enough for my floor), so I bought 2 packs so I had lots for replacements. I love my local Canadian Tire store, but they were double the cost.

Yes, I anticipate dirt and grit getting into the puzzle joints, but it shouldn't be too hard to take it up and clean. It's the price you pay for being cheap . I got a quick install, but will need to spend some time with upkeep.

I'm with you. I like simple and inexpensive. It should feel nice underfoot, too.

The black (or other solid colour) may not be as attractive looking but will probably wear better since it has a thicker top layer. This wood grain is not that thick so will probably show tears and wear quicker
