Floating Cork Flooring

Hi Folks,
I have put my OCD to good use and decided that I want a floating cork floor with click planks. When I search the forums, I find many people have done this and are happy.
THE PLOT THICKENS:
I just called icork.com to order 150 feet for my 1971 Ambassador 29 and was very seriously told that cork plank flooring will come apart as soon as the trailer begins to move. I told her that quite a few people on the Air Forum have done this and are happy. To which she responded that she has 30 Airstream customers who hate it. I cannot find any haters. Would you haters please speakup and let me know if what I want to do is really stupid!
Thanks in advance.
Manning and Sherry

Our trailer has it, installed by PO and is holding up fine. I however do not like the particular dark marbled style they picked that I think came from Lumber Liquidators.

We installed California Cork flooring in our AS 2 years ago. It is holding up just fine. Make sure the flooring is completely floated ( not nailed or glued down). Also, leave the flooring in the trailer for 30 days before installing so the it can acclimate to the trailer (during which time it may shrink or grow just a little bit). I got the flooring through Lowes.

We have 2 customers that hate it. And another that did his own research and sourced his own cork. Hasn't been a year Yet to find out how it's working.

Keep it dry. The bathroom is a bad place for it.

On both of em, it Drew up and shrank in the bath area.
And it is a very tender floor, scratches and gouges easily.

For the cost, both said they would rather go with marmoleum
