Need to replace our sheet vinyl flooring in our older Provan Tiger CX. i can't decide what to get, I think I want a seamless marine style floor but not like carpet but more like lightly textured gym mats found some EVA foam sheets for boats/surfboards on Amazon but most are like 36" width

We do wear shoes inside, would like non-slip quality (texture finish but no coin mat), my lady would like it to have some sort of design appeal (no hunting boat camo look), there is a sloping section approx. 30 degree towards our pass-through (so like vinyl plank style flooring would not work), the width would need to be around 72" to make it seamless and length is close to 96" (6' width 8' length).

Do a search for marine vinyl flooring… lots of cool options these days and you should easily be able to get a one-piece install as they use it for pontoons etc.

I have done this search but was a bit overwhelmed with amount of choices hoping for someone with a personal product reference or tips.

Fwiw,
I like good ’ol fashion linoleum. I installed alot of it refurbishing my old farmhouse.
The stuff used is ”Marmoleum” brand. They have some with antislip finish. Either by light embossing or by adding ground up coconut shell into the mix.
👍🏻
We used Marmoleum on one of our small kitchen remodels…it was very easy to work with, is durable and very attractive.

FWIW, we've had really great luck and wearability on flooring we special ordered from Home Depot in our Tiger. Easy to size and cut for a single piece install. Goodluck!

What was your method for cutting a single piece to such an odd shape?
I took several large sheets of brown paper, taped them all together, then laid them on the floor and carefully trimmed it with a razor knife to the outline of the floor. Any place I goofed up I would fill the void with tape and recut until the template fit perfectly. I transferred the template to the flooring and carefully drew around it and then using a very sharp razor knife cut the flooring out. Once I glued it down it was so snug to the shape of the floor I simply added a little clear caulk around the perimeter to help seal out any spills. Was done by lunchtime! Goodluck!

Thanks everyone for input, I have used some Mannington Vinyl in our rental properties, pretty impressed with it so I will look at the products available. I figured there was a 'step-up' for the RV in quality. But they do have different grades of many of the household sheet vinyl products I've noticed. I watched the installer of our sheet vinyl do an old out of square kitchen with penisula and a bathroom extended off (a very difficult layout), he glued it down and cut in place seemed nerve wracking to do it right I will probably do the BritKLR method but maybe with cardboard scribe.

I did get some free samples of the marine vinyl boat flooring on the way from allvinylfabrics.com but I'm already worried they maybe too heavily textured for anti-slip qualities and hard to clean mud off which is a major factor for us. In Spring it's almost a nightly chore to sweep and mop our floor especially with our dog.

That teak plank flooring style (post #2 top right) looks really amazing. I think I might go this route for an upcoming van build.

I have used the coin style black flooring before, a really popular option these days but I found it to scratch very easily.

@BritKLR, how has it held up to the temp swings? No cracks?

No problems at all, from typical -10 mountain weather to +100 degree weather out west. Can't say I even notice it anymore, it just works. Goodluck with your project!

The textured marine stuff cleans up easy, but it on a boat, you can use lots of water or pressure wash… not ideal for a camper interior. I’d definitely stick to something smooth. The commercial vinyl should be a great solution. It’ll be slip resistant and durable
