When I bought my carpet Corinthian suggested I just get the cheap glue at a box store and I've read several other people suggest the same thing. I bought some of the Roberts 6700 and the label reads

"Flooring must be installed when air, flooring and substrate temperatures are between 4595F with a maximum relative humidity (RH) of 65%,
48 hours before, during and 72 hours afterward. Protect from rain during installation and for 48 hours after installation. Large temperature or humidity increases or decreases can affect the flooring and cure of the adhesive during the installation."

I live on the gulf in Texas and I don't know when the humidity is below 65%.

Has anybody used this in a swampy climate? Some of the reviews said it was a challenge to get it to cure in the south.

What about just going with snaps? That way you don't have to worry about the adhesive and can remove carpet with ease

I've got an old DD 205 so I'd have to finish the fiberglass on the sides. I think I'm going glue it in.

Lay it in with what you have. It will work.
