Sealing Vinyl floor Tiles?


Okay you're all gonna laugh at me, but I've been remodelling a camper for the past couple weeks. Its been a fix as I go knid of project and I've been trying to keep things inexpensive. I've been trying to find a new counter top for it and so far haven't found too much under 50.00. Not that 50.00 is expensive, but I don't want to replace the whole thing its still sturdy I just want to cover the ugly finish thats in there now. And 50.00 for a piece of arborite? So we had some extra vinyl peel and stick tiles that we've used. Believe it or not, they look pretty good. My queston is, is ther some kind of sealant that I could use along the seams? I would want to do the same had it been used on the floor, but I've never used stick-on floor tiles before.

I've been installing TrafficMaster tiles in my bathroom and where ever there was a slightly visible gap between pieces, I just take some caulking with my finger and rub it into the seam. Keep rubbing it in to fill the and hide the seams and continue rubbing until all the excess caulking starts to roll up and just wipe the little caulking pills away. My tiles are beige and I used white caulking. You can't even see where I filled in the gaps, but they would be slightly visible if left alone.

No offense, but that is a waste of time.
