I could see the Schluter product being laid down loosely with the floating floor applied over top of it. I'm just thinking of the orange membrane as a possible underlay that would have the rigidity to keep seams and rivets from telegraphing. I suppose that your finished floor could be glued to this membrane to form a floating 'system' that combines underlay and finished floor. I'm just brainstorming here.

Edited to Add: The product I linked to shows the whole system of grouts, membranes and tiles, etc. What I'm considering as a viable option is just the orange membrane itself as an underlay. The rest of it wouldn't have application here, as grout and tile would not do well in a moving trailer.
