I installed "Allure" last year in our Trillium, very appreciated.
Easy installation, gives a beautiful style.
There is a good choice of colors.

Hello Lindsay,
I am new here also and have a 1974 Trillium 1300 with the rug ripped out and not to much glue left over. What I saw on Pinterest was a floor done with cork, it looked amazing. Thats the application that I will be using because of the warmth it will give the floor. As a child my parents office had a tile cork floor it was so warm and rich looking. Good luck. Please post some pics

I'm still debating between cork and allure. I like the look of both. Still need to get her all cleaned up and cleaned out before I seriously contemplate the flooring

Anyone have pics of their Allure install? I think this is what I want to do with my Olive a 1973 Trillium 1300 (testing out the name I'm extremely picky though and not sure I want to risk attempting this myself.

If you like, we could view my Escape that I did the cork in too. It is just 5 minutes away from my place in West Hillhurst. Here is a link to the thread I created on doing it. It could be done a lot easier in the Trillium 1300 though.

Cork Flooring

I pulled up the carpet in my Scamp 3 or 4 years ago and glued down cork 12 x 24 tiles directly to the plywood. I ignored all the advice to leave a gap around the edge for expansion; with no ill effects. I've been very happy with the results.

Rick, if you are gluing down flooring, there is no need for leaving an allowance around the edges, especially with cork. If the cork was an floating engineered product, that would be a different matter.

Bet that cork looks and feels good, eh?

Oh I am all kinds of confused lol. Anyway, if laying flooring directly on fiberglass bottom, any need for a vapor barrier?

Nope, no need Lyndsay. The only time a vapour barrier is used, is in a basement application where you are putting in on concrete. In homes we never use a VB anywhere else for flooring.

Clayton, how did you get the angle cuts on your trim for the little triangular bits under the table/top of the step.
