The Best RV Flooring Ideas in 2024

After years of use, the flooring in your RV might be worn down and need a refresh! You know you it’s time, but where do you start? For the best RV flooring, you need something durable, stylish, and functional. 

There are several RV flooring ideas to choose from, ranging from vinyl rolls to laminate, to carpet tiles, and everything in between. This guide will help you sort through the options to find the best replacement flooring for RVs. You’ll get the pros and cons, and customer reviews so you can make an informed choice.

How to Choose RV Flooring

Before you jump into shopping, there are some essential details RV owners should consider. What kind of flooring will hold up best to the challenges of a camper or RV? Here are a few helpful features to keep in mind.

  • Water-resistant: When you’re traveling or camping, it’s always good to prepare for the unexpected. Water-resistance protects your floor from moisture, so it won’t swell up or warp.
  • Durable: The great outdoors and the open road can be tough on your floor. You need something that can handle your road trips without tracking dirt and dust in. Plus, your RV won’t be climate-controlled 24/7, so your flooring needs to deal with more extreme hot and cold temperatures.
  • DIY-friendly: Why hire an installer if you don’t have to? There are plenty of floors you can install yourself, quickly and easily.
  • Weight: Your RV is heavy enough as it is, so it makes sense to avoid spending even more gas money by hauling extra pounds that you don’t need. A lightweight floor is always ideal for a camper or RV. 
  • Cost: If you’re on a budget, you need flooring that won’t break the bank, but it must be durable enough to last. Keep the value in mind. 

Now that you have some insight into what to look for in RV and camper flooring, let’s explore some popular options!

Flooring You Shouldn’t Use in RVs

While there are plenty of great RV flooring options, there are also a few types you should steer away from. While they might be perfect in a standard home, a mobile home has some special needs that you should consider. 

So here are a couple of floors that aren’t recommended for RVs or campers.

  • Vinyl planks: While you might think this is a great flooring option for an RV, vinyl plank flooring is only meant to be installed in the home. If you use vinyl plank flooring in an RV, your warranty could be voided.
  • Porcelain and ceramic tile: While people love how stylish and durable tile can be, it’s just too heavy to haul around as RV flooring. Instead, go for something lighter. Your gas mileage will thank you.
  • Hardwood: Real hardwood flooring is gorgeous, but that natural beauty comes with some drawbacks. This is a high-maintenance floor, and the last thing you want is to be worrying about your floor when trying to enjoy your camper. Plus, it’s pretty heavy, too. 


Inspired yet? There are a ton of options to pick from to update your RV flooring. Now that you have some more info about our top picks, you can make an informed decision about what works best for you. You’ll be back on the road enjoying your RV (and its awesome new flooring) in no time!
