Hi I am wanting to change the flooring in my van and i saw some good stuff in a couple of vans at Beaulieu and cant find anywhere that sells it.
It was black and white checked but it was larger than normal and was diamonds rather than squares.
Think it was in the orange van that won a couple of awards.
Does anyone know where to get some?

madmatz do the 9" vinyl tiles in a range of colours , you can just turn the tile 45 degrees to get a diamond effect .
The wood flooring looks good PDubby :cool:

hey thanks for that will give them a try!
I think the real wood looks smart but got to consider the weight when you are running a 1.9

Try looking on the web for a shop that sells KARNDEAN flooring, these are avaliable in all colours and are 12" x 12" (1 foot square). Easy to cut and install, from a good shop you should be able to purchase the correct glue for the flooring, it is sold in boxes which are 3.34 square mts in a box and cost is around 20 quid a square mt, so 2 boxes, one white one black is 6.68 sq mts x 20 = £134.00 roughly. OR look on ebay, sometimes its available on there.
To get the diamond effect lay them at a 45 degree, but i would make a template from paper of the floor, transfer this to a 6 or 9mm ply and fit the tiles on this, let the tiles overlap the edges of the ply then turn it over and trim round from the bottom. Hope this helps you and post some piccys when you've done what ever you decide.
Oh yes, I'm a floor layer.
