I received a grant 2 summers ago to remodel my trailer - yes indeed, I'm trailer trash. We compltetely replaced all the floors with 3/4" plywood instead of the pressboard they come with. Because I have dogs and do some rescue work with puppymill dogs, the contractor recommended medium traffic commercial carpet, though I wanted something less pervious.

Now, 2 yrs later, I can't keep this darned stuff from unraveling at the seams, and just plain can't get it clean.

I need very serious advice about cost-conscious recommendations for an impervious alternative.... go vinyl with area rugs, real tile, laminate or what ???

Thank you very much.

I REALLY love ceramic tile, but was concerned about the flex in the floor. In fact, the vinyl I put in the kitchen and bathroom is made to resemble 12 x 12 tile...

I would be concerned with tile too.

Possible a laminate flooring would be the best, but most trailers use carpet stretched or loose layed in.
