I wouldn't put laminate in my trailer though I do like the idea. In winter, sweating isn't uncommon at all and most laminates don't take to water very well. Does make me think yanking out my carpet and putting some lino in might be a good idea.

By sweating do you mean condensation forming on the ceiling and dripping down on the floor?

What I put in my trailer is sheet Linolium that you buy at home depot on the back wall in huge rolls. I take it out whenever I want to scrb the tackroom.

I don't know the difference between laminate and linolium.

Maybe I don't know the difference either...

Taffy, so your floor is one piece that you cut to fit?

For some reason I have the stuff stuck in mind that comes in pieces and you click them together...

No it is one piece that came on a 12 foot roll and I bought 7'. I then laid it out face down on the floor and put the carpet from the tack room floor also face down over it and used a marker to outline the carpet. Then took a straight edge and a box cutter and cut the pattern. Then put it in the trailer. It will come out easily when needed because it is not glued down.

This is the vinyl flooring I got. I sugest getting the vinyl in the $11-12 range because that is well worth the extra price, the cheeper stuff needs to be glued down. If you ask they might have a remnant in the back that might fit your needs and be a better price.

I just put down a vinyl floor in my cake kitchen that I bought from Lowe's. It was $1.05 per square foot and I LOVE it. It looks fantastic. It is a wood look and people think it is laminate! I have quiet a big piece left over - I may put it in the floor of my tack closet and up in the front of my Brenderup - It would be easier to clean!

Yep, that's what I mean. Pretty darn moist over here in Oregon and this is a common problem for trailers stored outside. I don't leave anything in there during the winter if it can mildew.

That I have one! I had just stock/no dressing room for while, and when I traded for my current one it was a blessing. Especially if you go to the show and need to change the cloth!
