Got to test the floor last night & this morning. Subjective evaluation here, the vinyl was cool (OK to walk on), but not nearly as cold as the bare aluminum floor. Very happy we installed the vinyl floor and carpet mats. Recommend this upgrade.

Exploringcarolina has done an excellent job on the flooring so he can give up his day job. I will be picking up my Livinlite 28bhs 2 days from now that comes with fake wood plank vinyl flooring already installed. I do not expect it to do anything about the coldness of the floor, so I am waiting to read what Exploringcarolina says about the carpet mats ...

The bare aluminum floor gets cold in the winter. We installed vinyl floor in our CampLite. Camped down to the 50s so far and the floor covering installed is not nearly as cold as it was before installing the vinyl. Will be camping in temps down to the 40s later this month and will report back. Seems like the interior temps are more consistent with the addition of the floor covering. There is insulation in the walls & ceiling.

Also keep carpet floor mats over the vinyl floor. I am intentionally stepping on the vinyl, not the carpet, when checking floor temps.

Carpet mats,



Vinyl floor,

I'm pretty sure the floor will be closer to the outside air temperature than a conventional trailer. It's aluminum, with more surface area exposed to the outside than the inside.

Rugs or mats help keep the floor feeling warmer in winter.

I did a search of prices and used a price from Southland RV to get my local dealer here in Florida to drop down for our 21BHS. He knew either he would match the price, or I'd make the drive to pick up the camper. He matched the price. We still paid a bit more than other trailers, but not nearly as much if we didn't talk the dealer down some. We paid a bit more than 2/3 of MSRP, but are happy with the price, and the camper.

Thanks exploringcarolina! We are going to the RV show in Raleigh this weekend. Plan to talk to the folks at DH there. I'll check out the other two.

Can anyone help me with pricing info on CampLite travel trailers. My wife and I really like the 21fbs. However, it's on the very high end of our price range. Every dollar we spend on our TT is money we don't spend actually traveling. All of my research says don't pay more than 2/3 the posted MSRP for a TT (yeah, I know there isn't such a thing in a lot of cases).

However, it seems like a lot of people are paying top dollar (near list) price for LivinLite products. It looks like supply isn't quite keeping up with demand so that is certainly part of it.

Thoughts? Is there much wiggle room?
