Has anyone tried a vinyl plank flooring, like Home Depot sells? I built a bunch of framework leaving the stock rubber, jute-backed (or whatever that fibrous backing is) flooring in place. Now I want to re-do the floor, at least in the "living room." My living room is <6x6, actually ~ 5' long by 4.2' wide, because cabinets along driver side. I don't need nicer floor under bed platform covering entire rear, or even under driver-side counter. I just want to minimize removal of "frameworks," installing new floor where it will show. To be clear, living room is adjacent to slider door, it does not include what's under full-width bed platform in rear, nor under countertop along driver side opposite the slider door.
Using 6" x 36" or 12" by 48" "planks" might make the retrofit easier, while being cost-effective and easy to diy install.
Also not sure what layers to use under it, don't want big build up, minimal, like level with molded step pieces. Thinking vinyl strips to fill floor corrugations, then some layer(s) of insulation, them maybe hardboard or polyiso (maybe), topped with 3-6ml thick vinyl layer.
by any chance, does someone have measurements of the floors of 148" cargos?
