Waterproof flooring solution

We want to replace the carpet in our 2001 Airdream Excellus - has anyone ever heard of or used a product called "Supreme Click Elite waterproof Vinyl Plank"? We've heard bad results from other Airstream owners who replaced with wood flooring and ended up with expansion/contraction of joints due to being in a non-climate controlled region (i.e. upstate NY). Any recommendations are appreciated - thanks!

I used a similar product from Home Depot, after much research.

I have to say it looks good, but the "click together" part is a real biscuit. Best plan: Hire some sucker flooring contractor to install it for a flat fee. I did mine by myself, and I learned several new phrases in the process.

As far as wood flooring a floating floor with an expansion space where the floor meets the wall solves that problem.

I suspect that installation of any flooring product in an RV voids it's warranty,

Mine is installed to float, in theory.

Installed engineered flooring which has preglued padding. Front den we ran one way, hallway another and bedroom. Two years, perfect.
