Buy ugly vinyl sheet flooring (but good quality thickness), that's marked way down in price so it's cheap, flip it over and paint the backside with some good paint. You can make whatever design pattern you want. Seal it with some polyurethane.

I realize that for many of those among us here on this site, what's cheap is chic...

But since the floor of your trailer is so small, maybe you'd consider another option.

The FLOR company makes the coolest carpet squares--with more color and texture options that you can shake a stick at... Mix and match to your hearts content. The carpet squares are rubber-backed, and come with crack-n-peel tabs to hold 'em down. (My wife and I used them to make an "area rug" in our family room.) Got a square that's been damaged or stained beyond repair? Just replace it! And using carpet mitigates the need to make your subfloor super smooth and level (though I would prep the surface appropriately before installing anything.) The squares are 18" but with a good knife, a straight edge and a steady hand you could cut them down to 9" just like your linoleum...

My two cents...

(Ooops! I see you wrote 12 x 12 tiles... 9"x9" was the standard size for linoleum squares back in the day...)

It being late fall, you just might be able to work a deal on some imitation lawn.

I mean, what could be more funky than having lawn for a floor in your Scamp?

Then, once you got used to that, i.e., became conditioned to the funk factor, you could get a new high by rebuilding the cabinetry with oak branch construction.

Right now with the maple leaves falling, gather up a pile, spread them around in your living room to dry for a day or so, then . . . paint a section of wall or ceiling with polyurethane and before it dries stick leaves on the surface to your heart's desire. When finished, go back over with another coat or two . . . .

Hey, the possibilities are endless! And I'm having a great time dreaming stuff up!

Those tile squares are brittle. I was told they would not tolerate the vibration and uneven floor. I must admit they do have cool colors.
