One box was enough to do the whole Trillium floor with just a couple small pieces left over. I believe the box does 20 sq ft.

I had vinyl plank flooring in my home. It was great! Very durable. Had it installed when the home was built. Just sold my home after being there 19 years and it still looked nice.

It took 2 afternoons to complete the project. The first afternoon was spent removing the old Lino, contact cement and caulking. I used a heat gun and a 4" putty knife to pull it up and then a bit of a acetone to remove some of the glue residue. (The PO used way too much glue....LOL). The second day was the install. The allure is really easy to work with. About 6 hours total for the whole project.

You bet. I put in our 17 foot boler last summer. Looks great, easy to install, and it handled our temperature fluctuations in Alberta

Clayton, how many boxes of the Allure did you use? There is one box at the Habitat for Humanity Re-Store that I love but I am not sure if it's enough. I might have to mix it up with two slightly different kinds if one box won't cover it all. Thanks!

Edit: I just saw your post that answers this. One box is perfect!

Planning your layout helps out a lot. Make a paper or cardboard template that you can use as a guide outside of the trailer. Lay your pieces out on the template before cutting. If you cut strips of the waxed paper that comes in the box to lay on the adhesive edges you can overlap the edges without the strips sticking together. That is helpful when trimming the edges for a good fit.

I left mine in the Trillium as a floating floor with some finicky trimming around the curves. No trim or sealant needed. I have noticed the seams are now raised a bit on the edges after a few years. Sort of like real wood that has cupped a bit.
