There is glue together laminate still available in both thicknesses to this day. Just use the 6/7mm stuff for an RV, no need to go to 10/12mm, that's for commercial use.

If you're not wiping glue off of the surface as you're installing it, you're not using enough glue. Rent the strap clamps.

edit: the above advice comes from a floor professional, not an RV professional.
HOW MANY BOXES DID IT TAKE OF BAMBOO? FOR PERSON THAT INSTALLED IT?

I chose the laminate flooring because the cork and wood flooring do scratch and dent easy and can stain. For my 32' Excella it will take about 4 boxes of laminate flooring.
Rita, I understand your concerns and health problems. I have congestive heart failure with 9 stints, degenerative joint disease with surgery on both shoulders and back, and have early stage Alzheimer's. I am doing my Airstream to fulfill a dream I have had since 1973, the first time I went in one. I bought it 4 weeks ago and am slowly getting started on the renovation. I wish you both the best in your remodel. Kelly

I forgot - lol. Should I do sealer / treatment on the floor while I have the sub floor exposed? I can see the benefits of doing so but am concerned about the toxic effects it may have on the environment inside the trailer. Thanks, Kelly

Kellywood, look for a sealer that is water based. I don't think they seal as well, but health is a bigger concern.

Rot Doctor under laminate?

Has anyone coated their plywood with Rot Doctor while the plywood is exposed, prior to putting down their new laminate floor?

I've used Rot Doctor around certain areas which showed signs of, or were prone to moisture. I have quite a bit left, and I plan to put some Pergo down (which I was given over the winter from a relative) to replace the original carpet. I was considering coating the entire plywood floor while I have the carpet out, and prior to putting the Pergo down. I haven't contacted Rot Doctor to ask if there would be problems in doing so.

You might want to read this. It gives a good idea of how to apply the products as well as what other products are out there. Rot Repair -- Fixing Rotted Wood
Be sure to check out the "home brew" link. It is a very cost effective alternative especially for large areas.

Be sure to read and follow Rot Doctor's procedures for protecting yourself during the use of their product. The warnings on their website look like it may have health risks if inhaled.
