Laminate flooring: when to install?

Did those of you who gutted your project AS and upgraded to laminate flooring install the flooring before reinstalling the cabinets and wall dividers or after?

I'm confused as to when I should do it. And finally, what were the square footage numbers for your particular TT? For my 26 Argosy project, 200 sq. Ft seems like too much?

I'd put it down first, then lay everything on top of it. Most trailers are built that way, it's a whole lot easier than cutting around everything, and looks better, too.
Your trailer will have a maximum of 184 square feet, but that will be less the area at the front where the water tank is.

I laid mine with the trailer about 90% gutted. I did not remove a portion of the cabinetry and it made the job a lot more challenging. Then I covered it with cardboard to make certain to protect it for the rest of the renovation.

Just a word of caution. I laid 6"x36" planks in January and I'm having trouble with temperature changes. We laid them out perfectly in colder weather but as the temp rises, the tiles expand and I am having buckling issues. Make sure you meet the manufacturers temperature requirements. I tried, but it was tough to maintain 65 degrees for several days in January. This time of year should be fine.
