If you want to change it out, no glue to take up.
All AS's "flex", a glued floor may initiate a crack in a joint - not much of a problem for a "floating" floor.
The intricacies of the trailer floorplan require a certain amount of movement when putting in the floor, another reason to float it in.
The relativiely small width and length of trailers do not require much area for thermal expansion - just enough to put it in is really all that is required.
If you damage one panel (or need to access an area for repair) it can be done (ask Swebster if it is possible to damage "Pergo").
The primary downside of "floating" is (IMO) weight - the flooring and rubber underlayment are heavier than most "glued" floorings.
I have had "Pergo" installed in the 345 for well over a year and over 10,000 miles with no problems. Our requirements were such that we needed a "slick" easily cleanable floor as opposed to carpet. -- The one test I put all of the samples we looked at was the "fingernail imprint" - I figured that if my fingernail could not damage the finish, then the pup's feet wouldn't either.
There were a lot of samples that did not pass the "test".
