We have purchesded laminet flooring for our A/S and will be laying it length wise. It is a floating floor so when you lay it down I would say anything that is permanent should have the floor cut around it to let it float. There will also be a 1/4 inch expansion around the walls and any cabinets. This will be covered with some type of trim when done.
The flooring we purchased is 7mm (1/4 in) thick.

Great Pumpkin, Yes it is a laminate, the sheets are 2ft. by 4ft. the make is Armstrong so any Armstrong dealer can get it. It is a little pricey at $5.99 Canadian per square ft. We have sold that trailer but are going to put the same floor in our 30 ft. Argosy. It holds up really well even with 2 dogs. I left a cut piece outside for 1 1/2 years and it didn't warp or fade. The dealer was so impressed he has a picture of the floor and a piece of the floor I left outside. That isn't a real good picture, it really looks like slate. If you want more info or some better pictures pm me. Marvin

as for floating, I put the laiminate under my gaucho and then screwed it back down. So the floating is not happening under it anyway. So far no problems, and the weather here has varied from 95 degrees to the upper 20's last week, no ill effects. The rest of it may be "floating" to some extent, but the quarter round trim is nailed down on the sides. I had a similiar thing with the cork in my moho, and that never buckled at all, and was glued in several areas..
