We have a 1980 trailor with lino floor in our kitchen and hearing about abos is worrying me. we are going to replace our floor it does have small cut and cig. bruns not much tho. it is the original lino so would it be easier to just put new over the old.

Asbestos wasn't used much after the 70's so that isn't a huge concern but as long as the old lino is secure you can install over it. Make sure to cut away any loose pieces from the slices and burns then make sure to use a linoleum leveling compound to smooth out bumps and burns (it will also help the glue get better adhesion). However, if height isn't a concern, I recommend laying a new subfloor over the old floor. This will ensure a fresh smooth surface to lay the new floor on.
