With your RV being fairly new, why do you want to replace it?

Do you mean the wood flooring under the vinyl or the floor covering itself? The floor covering shouldn't be any more difficult than any other flooring in a house.

Only thing is the vinyl is one big slab laid down before the walls went up. In removing the old vinyl, lots of cutting around walls and trim. Same for installing new sheet vinyl. And... I can't say I've ever seen shoe moulding in an RV... but I guess it's doable.

Done lots of residential flooring, but I'm not sure I'd want to tackle an RV... my gusto ran out for that about 15 years ago.

If it's a "must do", small 1/4 round would work along edges. I would staple flooring along edge, run a bead of sealant along the edge then shoot small quarter round in place while sealant was still tacky. Pre-paint the molding close to tje color of the flooring and it would help hide it a bit.

It seems to me that, depending on the thickness of the new flooring, it may interfere with your slide-room rolling in and out smoothly.

Wondering if you made any progress since your post? We are thinking of replacing flooring and ours is 2022. It is yellowing everywhere.

Yellowing may be a defect in installation...wrong adhesive used...Google it....contact Dealer and Thor about replacement.
