I have houses that have had Laminate for over ten years and it has stood up very well in the wear category. One of my renters had a Labrador retriever He lived there 4 years and the laminate looked the same on the day he left as it did when he moved in. No scratch marks or anything. I use laminate from Sams Club with the built in pad. It actually is about .25cents per square foot cheaper than the allure vinyl planks.
This is laminate installed in 97 to 03 these were our how do I put it gingerly our rentals for people on supplementary income. This was the 97c per sq ft laminate installed in a 3 story walk up exterior entry to each unit in snow country. The laminate at their computer s about a third of them got gouged and the laminate at the doors experienced some bumps from moisture. One unit spilled vinegar overnight killing its floor. We have the high quality stuff in our basement with no problems whatsoever. On stairs on the 1939 building the existing ceramic was cracked, a switch to vinyl so far so good. Take a peice of laminate and try to bend it, do the same with allure. Take a piece of laminate and leave it soaked in acidic fluid do the same with allure. Glad you had good experience. I found its the flat laminate with bad wear resistance the commercial rated texture stuff wears much better. All allure and cerasmina products wear well. I am unsure of rv manufacturers that use laminate, I can name a few that use vinyl. IMHO I love the old style linseed lino though.
