This won't be much help, but I installed about 100 sq ft in my house and it has been excellent. Very simple install, and light weight (good for MH). My gut says it would handle the temp and humidity variations. You may be able to find acceptable temp/humidity ranges if you pick a particular cork manufacturer. Good luck.

I would worry about the slide roller marking the soft cork. Other than that I would think that would be a great flooring material for an RV. Maybe some sort of tile accent design where the rollers go?

Cork flooring is usually compressed and surprisingly resilient. If the rollers won't damage wood I doubt hey would damage the cork.

Remember I have no idea how your rig is set up

Cork

We have cork in our stick house in 2 bathrooms. When we installed the cork it was only available with flush joints so you do notice the seams. After 4 years it still looks like new. Best part is it is warm in the winter on your feet and very comfortable to walk on.
Now the manufacturers have v groove joints on the flooring which would look even better.
Well worth installing in a motorhome. Surprised it's not more popular all around.

Met some folks this summer in Colorado who installed cork flooring themselves. Did a great job. They said to be sure and purchase cork that does not contain "formaldehyde" as that compound has an unpleasant odor. Also, they left a "hammer" on the cork overnight by mistake and a small indention showed the next day, but returned to its original shape after several hours. Great Floor according to them.

I put cork flooring in my kitchen in our S&B and love it. I'd put it in a coach if I thought that coach's slide system could handle it. I once was getting something out of an overhead cabinet and knocked a nice blue glass vase out. It dropped 6+ feet to the floor and bounced. It is very easy on the feet and is not cold.

You install it like Pergo or any other floating floor, although the extremely small area in an RV means that you don't really have to float it.
