Caravaning – Vinyl flooring

This summer we will be caravaning around Latvia. But first things first.


I upgraded our caravan to be more like for us – two grownups and 3 kids under 6 years. Our flooring was carpet and it wasn’t easy to clean! Now it’s Vinyl flooring! It is easy to clean and it was easy to install.


Actually, I didn’t install it, just covered floor without gluing it down and the reason for that was there is carpet already and I can’t get it out without taking everything (kitchen, wc, beds, etc) out. I can’t glue vinyl flooring on top of carpet. I need to get it out, otherwise, there will be mold after a winter. The plan is to take it out after summer.mess.jpg

Since we are planning short small trips through whole summer I packed almost all girls clothes. No matter if traveling or not, clothes will be in caravan :). Easy to find, easy to put back after washing. Doing like that I won’t need to move in and out every time we get back home (Janis will be working all the time!).

I will keep you updated as much as I can, we are caravaning around and having fun!


P.S. Before leaving discovered that central heating isn’t working and also have no solution for better ceiling lamp (we had glass on, not safe!).

  1. The ace DIYer again 😃. Good solution to put temporarily on top of carpet. Yes, we have carpet in the camper – nightmare! Never got around to changing it for something similar to you although it’s a smaller job. Enjoy you trips.

    1. Thank you, Dimi! As you know, we are in for few days and it’s so easy to clean. I don’t have to be in stress about “don’t come in with muddy boots!”. I’m happy I did it! Wasn’t that hard – Courage was all I needed ! 🙂
