Installing Hardwood Floors

I am thinking about installing solid hardwood flooring in the Airstream were renovating. It seems a lot of people are doing floating floors. However many solid floating floors are heavy. I found a hardwood flooring thats only 5/16 but the installation method is staple/nail down. Im worried about expansion problems with stapling it to the subfloor. Does anyone have any success/failure stories with nailing solid hardwood flooring to the subfloor?

I have a floating floor, excellent quality, but after 8 months, the floor started to lift, not sure why, it comes and goes, but I would still recommend a floating floor , I would just leave an 1/8 inch along edges for expansion
