I If you can swing the budget, Marmoleum, a trademark name for linoleum, not to be confused with vinyl or vinyl composition tiles and it is a very solid product.
I work in construction and I've used the Marmoluem sheet in commercial applications and the click in residential applications.
I believe I was getting provide and install prices of $8.50sqft, but I’d have to pull out the project folder to verify that, and that is in the Baltimore market.
Marmoluem sheet was installed in the public first floor of the below building. They may have photos of it on their website.

One of your posts made mention to durability. If it is tough enough for a commercial application, it will certainly be tough enough for use in your Airstream.
One of the pros of linoleum, aside from the fact that it is an actual 'green' product and not a 'green washed' product', i.e. - bamboo, is that the color runs throughout the product so if it gets scratched, it usually doesn't show.
I would recommend that you have a professional installer do the installation because it is glued down and because since it is a natural product there is shrink!
My wife and I have recently acquired out first RV and first Airstream and I've already talked to a few flooring subcontractors that I used for linoleum installations and the same pre-installation preparation needs to occur, but it would be no different than a typical installation.
