Sorry for the confusion. In my 1968 AS project I have the Allure vinyl maple planks which I love and cold be pulled up later without harming the sub-floor, because it is "loose-laid"(no glue).
I also have a '93 AS '31 excella and I had to glue down the "3/8 solid maple flooring, which worries me a bit if I ever have to pull it up, which would destroy the OSB underneath. but I am a worrier.

Motor homes get very hot inside, I would think the sticky back planks would let go in a very hot M/H. The planks are only designed for homes that don't get as hot as a car in the summer. IMO

OK, so it's not a floating floor. I re-read your first post and realized it's a peal and stick type of flooring product. Hopefully you wont have any seam separation over time with the high/low temp cycles that occur in a MH. Looks good right now.

How did you end up fixing the damaged area of the sub floor near the front?

I just cut out the damaged area with a circular saw and chisel then liquid nailed down another 3/8 plywood piece .

We just got back from a camp trip in the Monongahela National forest and the vinyl was very easy to sweep out. Glad we did it

FYI - I installed self-adhesive (sticky-back) vinyl planks in my Tradewind this spring and found I needed to trim some of the mating surfaces where the vinyl would pull up as it expanded in the heat. Since trimming the tighter joins, the flooring has worked out very well. Doesn't fool many people, but nicer looking than sheet goods pretending to be wood.
