I did it myself some years ago in a caravan. I am fairly cack handed at DIY stuff, but this was an old caravan, not worth spending much money on, so I wasn't too worried about making a pigs ear of it.
In the event, it was simple enough and I like to think I did a reasonable job. If I remember rightly, all that was involved was drilling some holes in the delaminated bit of the floor, injecting in the gooey stuff (which at that time I seem to remember you had to mix 2 different gooey stuffs together), fit dowelling into the holes to stop the stuff coming out, and placing a heavy weight on it all overnight. As Mrs P wasn't for sleeping on the van floor, I used some bricks on a piece of board.
It worked, the delamination didn't reoccur and we had the van for another 2 or 3 years, till the various other problems forced a change. (Even then we got a couple of hundred pounds as a trade in.)
It didn't look terrific, but once the vinyl flooring and carpet was back down, that didn't matter.
Good luck.

I was in our local caravan dealers last week and a guy was just buying 2 kits (they had worked it out on surface area for him) and it sounded the same stuff that candapack used from the instructions they were giving him.

Done it myself, it really is an easy job if you have a few DIY skills.
