Although I'm using this in an unauthorized (and warranty voiding) way, the flooring looks amazing and I'm very pleased with how easily it went in. I was able to do the entire Airstream in about 6 hours, including the cuts. Only time will tell if it will hold up.
Unfortunately I ran a heavy box over it by the door and put a substantial scratch in it. I worry that future wear and tear might be an issue. However, I plan to use 2 rugs, so maybe it will all work out.
I left a gap on the sides to allow for some movement. I installed it when it was 80+ degrees, so if anything it should only be shrinking. :)
For the price point, I was willing to risk it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kris Easy, but you WILL mess up a bit---here are some tips....
tip one: when ordering product, make sure you also order a roll of the sticky strips. You will probably need them at least once. I also ordered the sticky planks, but havent had a use for them yet. But I'm not done--they are on line order only, so order them both right away so you aren't stuck with out them mid project (I was)
tip two: you will mess up, no matter how careful you are. so pulling apart the planks goes MUCH better if you heat with a hairdryer and slide a spackling tool to separate the pieces. They will often rip off of the strip if you don't do this. You really cant re-use the plank if it rips off. I tried. Just replace it because you won't be happy with it.
tip three: very important! Make sure you start your project on whatever wall will have the blue strip showing to take the next piece. If you are carrying it into additional rooms, you MUST start in the room at the farthest most point of your area, or you will be sorry. For example, I am flooring my entire lower level. From the living room, I go into a hallway and foyer, closet, bathroom and laundry room. The hallway, foyer and closet are to the left of my living room-from the left rear corner of the room, looking into the hallway. I began my project in the living room rather than the foyer, so I am now having to slide planks UNDER the one that's already there. I'm having to do this for about 20 feet long and 10 feet wide. It is a royal pain. SO, before placing your first plank, figure out which corner to begin so that every plank will have the blue edge showing for the next one, and make sure you take into consideration every room you will be covering and if you will be "traveling" from room to room, or if there is a break.
tip four: It is very easy to cut a piece, but it will dull your blade quickly. I suggest using a heavy duty blade, rather than a regular box cutter. I switched from a generic knife to a Lenox Gold one, and I've only used one blade for the same amount of cuts as 4 blades on the other.
tip five: While it is very easy, it will take longer than you expect. Take your time and do a good job on each piece. If something is not quite right, then fix it right then. dont wait because it will bother you, and it will be harder to fix later.
tip six: if you need to stop working, save some of the paper in the box to put over your blue sticky strips do that they don't get dusty or hairy or dirty until the next time you work on it.
I hope this helps your project go a little more smoothly than mine! What I've done so far looks great and I'm very happy with the outcome

I'm 60 years old and was relieved to find this flooring that I could install myself. I checked out all this good reviews on the product and looked at many others before deciding on this one.

Easy to install, looks good. Just did it so can't say as to how it will last. It was fun to put down. I did it by myself.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Howiesthunder Easiest Flooring Ever!!!
This flooring is so easy to install I let my 12 year old daughter do it, and it looks great. She did nearly her entire room without my help. I just made the cuts for the end pieces for her, which was easy, since it's just a simple score with a utility knife and a bend, and it breaks off perfectly straight and smooth every time.
I used this same product 8 years ago for my heavy traffic hallway areas. It's still looking as good as the day I installed it. Going to ditch the rest of my carpet and install this stuff wall to wall in my home. Easy to clean. Nothing to maintain. No worries about subfloor, since it doesn't attach to the subfloor. Just lays down and looks great for years!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dawn Reasonable price great look
This floor is easy to put down. You do have to be right the first time because you are working with a glued surface joint. If you have access to a floor roller, that will assure tight cohesion. It cleans up beautifully. Keep in mind it is vinyl so it can be damaged, it's not wood.
