Hello All, I’ve recently started working on a passenger van to use it for camping. One of the first things I wanted to do was to install vinyl wood flooring to replace the carpet. I’ve seen lots of videos and some seemed like a bad idea for the integrity of the floor. (Ex. Screwing straight through the metal floor)
There were two main flooring strategies I liked.
One where they glued wood down in between all the ribs of the floor. Then layed the plywood on top and screwed it only to the wood boards below.
The second was to lay insulation into the ribs of the floor, and then glue the plywood to the top of each rib.
Out of these two, which one would you suggest? Or do you have another strategy that you think would be better?
Here are pics of what the floor looks like now. Thank you for your time.
I could only put one image so this is a small section of what the floor looks like under the insulation left behind from the carpet.
