    The linoleum and carpet on my 2004 TT is starting to look pretty tired and I wonder how difficult it would be to rip it all out and replace with wood tile or something similar from Home Depot or Lowes.
    Is there a flat plywood floor underneath that would be easy to tile? What about where the linoleum and carpet meet, the trim divider, whats underneath there?

    Re: Upgrading the floor.

    Your linoleum is laying on top of OSB or plywood. When your trailer was made, the lino was rolled out over the floor. The carpet was then installed over the lino. There is nothing at the lino/carpet edge except a lot of staples. You need to leave carpet in front of the slideout about 18" out, if you have one.

    IF you have a slideout, you need to be careful of the thickness of wood flooring. Too thick, the slide floor won't slide over it.
