I stopped the laminate just under the front of the fridge. I did not want to move it, especially on my own. I ran it under the cabinet edges and so on.
No doghouse to contend with. Made it easier, but being the poorly trained carpenter that I am, the many small protuding edges and angles were enough challenge for me. Also snapping in the laminate when a tighter fit under cabinet edges on two sides was hard to get done.
I used a small cut off piece and a rubber mallet to hit them together in those spots.

ok, so it wasn't later the same day, but 3 days later. Here's a pic of what happens if you install legthwise without "breaks" in between. This is only 1600 miles after the install where it looked beautiful.

There are three grades of padding, get the best, I got mine at Home Depot it is red and white. I was told it is just like carpet, the better the padding the longer the floor will last. We really enjoyed ours till we sold the trailer.

HD told me they only sell the red and white stuff now. I had already bought that thinner blue foam.Hopefully it will hold up ok. I installed across the trailer, but of course I had not measured that way originally so I ran out before the bedroom. On a positive note, I was thinking of carpet in the bedroom anyway and now that is what I will do.

Think its necessary to have a space around all the planks where they meet the walls? I do have a few that are snug, but could trim the ends a little more.

I installed laminate 3 yrs ago in 1995 30 ft Classic, with NO PROBLEMS so far, and looks GREAT.
There are a couple of photos of the floor in the set I posted on Members Photos recently with pics of my drooping ceiling repair.
To find them, just search Members Photos for 'Ken10' under member name search.
