motorhome floor bubbles


Hey there everyone, i have had some great advice on this site so thank you! I do have another question in relation to my motorhome floor. It has come up with air bubbles and my initial instinct is to open up and perhaps glue down. Does anyone else have any experience with this in their spaces that could make any suggestions?

Morning TamSun,

I'm not sure if this will work or not but won't damage anything that I am aware off. Get down on you knees, you might have to do that on a Sunday as everything in our homes on wheels has to have at least two uses, um, today is Sunday so a good day to try it. Anyways, get on those knees with a hot iron and rag and apply heat to the effected area. If there was glue there to start with it just might melt it and stick things as new. Keep an eye on things so you don't cause any damage.

I don't think you will though.

A hair dryer might work too. Without the rag.

Worth a try I reckon.




Keep Safe on the roads and out there.

As Dougwe said the neoprene glue that they often use for sticking flooring down is heat activated. By any chance dos the exhaust run under the floor where you have the bubbles if so an exhaust bandage may help stop it recurring.

Thanks so much for this info! Invaluable! This will be my first step in fixing. (The exhaust doesn't run under the floor where the bubbles are)

Tamsun, many motor homes/caravans leak and water gets between flooring and vinyl, ensure that your motor home is totally sealed against water ingress.
