Please let me know what you have used and why?
The first Excella I did was a 2000, 30'. The laminate was made by Mohawk. They recommend a thin firm foam under layment that was no more than 1/8" thick. It worked fine we used It for 2 years with no problems. Some companies have an underlayment that is glued to the laminate, I used that on a customer's Airstream, it worked fine also.
Don't use an underlayment more than 1/8", or there will be too much flex.
I've installed all of mine "east and west", as it makes the coach look wider.
