Yeah, I was just thinking about nooks & crannies and closets and other cutouts and trims.Then
there is also a seam to consider if the room is bigger than 12x12IVC vinyl is 13' 3" wide.

Looks like celotex. Some of it contained asbestos. I would have it tested.

A solid sheet vinyl like IVC is very DIY friendly.

I hammered it together a bit better but when one crack closes another one seems to open.
Perhaps there is 1/16" difference that my laser gps did not register? Not sure i have patience
for this discipl...

It is my understanding that if the tile measures 12" x 12", it does not contain asbestos. If
smaller dimension (on a full piece), then no guarantees.That is wrong. 12x12 tiles were made

Hmm.. so they need to do some self-leveling first?I don't think you understand. The floor is
probably not stiff enough for tile. Gypcrete is thin and flexes. There is no way to stiffen it.

It's actually a 1982 Fleetwood.Still a good chance the floors are particle board, with the
flooring installed under the walls.:(

A 1970s most likely has particle board floors. They all rotted. I would just replace it with
plywood a sheet at a time. Just be aware that 3/4" particle board was 3/4" thick. 3/4" plywood
was not 3/4"...

If concrete will crack on that floor, so will ceramic and porcelain.

Gypcrete is normally used to reduce weight and cost. I would be surprised if the structure is
rated to hold concrete. The gypcrete is probably 2 inches thick over a 3/4" plywood sheet. I
have seen 1 1...
