I am going to install Water Proof snap lock Vinyl Plank Flooring in my travel trailer to replace Buckled and cracked Linoleum. The Vinyl Plank I am looking at is Traffic Master at home depot. It has a Rubber like backing and is designed to float. No underlayment needed. Several people in different forums say to Also Glue it down. Home depot says not to glue it down. I would like to hear from those who have installed the Vinyl Plank snap lock flooring in their RV. Did you glue it down or not.

I used the same flooring in my 2008 class c. I only glued down the edges that went under the slide-out. The remaining flooring I did not glue down, I used PVC quarter-round trim around the perimeter. It looks great and allows a small gap for expansion and contraction.

Thanks for the heads up. I am installing it and not gluing it down. Will use quarter round on the edges. I did go with a different brand.

If things move around too much try using double sided carpet tape on the outer planks.
You can still remove it if you have to.

I installed vinyl plank in my slide room. Glued down only the leading edge with a relatively weak glue in case I every need to pull it up. It’s been great so far.
