laminate floor question

I am going to put laminate in my rv, the new pergo xp that looks like tile. My question is that it says on the instructions that it is for use in temperatures of 65-85 and a certain humidity range. I assume all laminates say that, should i be concerned..i live in minnesota where the temperatures can be extreme. Any advise? Are there laminate floors just for rv's. I picked the pergo xp cause it is so tough, can run a scissors over them with hardly a visible mark. thanks for your help.

I believe that temperature range is for installation and not a working floor. Just a guess, no offense intended.

Join this Yahoo group and ask Ernie about the floor. He does MH flooring for a living. Ernie will answer your questions whether you have him do the work or not. I have not used him, but the ones that have like his work.

Ernie rally ought to become a commercial member here, on one forum I run I had to delete a few of his posts which were really ads.

Mr D,
Yes I noticed that on his Yahoo group. However, he does give out free advise to people about products and installation.

Thanks,
Chuck Boone

I have found Ernies posts to be very helpful and on about the same level as any other DIY poster here in terms of free sharing of information. Never felt like there was any pressure to use his service. He seems more like a magician willing to reveal the secret of the trick. It appears he is a one or two man shop that operates out of his home or will come to you in his bus. (is that advertising or a statement of fact?). Ya he has a business but I think he does a pretty good job at being one of us, over being a salesman or advertising. If someone asks about a job they're doing and he posts a picture of one he did, or how to handle edges or install, is that advertising or sharing an idea - know how? To me it's sharing with experience to back it up. Maybe ya straightened him out Mr. D or maybe he knows the rules here and is trying to help within the guidelines. Doesn't seem to me like he's trying to get away with anything. If it were me, not sure I'd give away the secret of the illusion. The more done wrong the better I'd think. And I've read of plenty done wrong that end up with throw rugs covering the scratches. Just my .02 cents.

"According to my memory," and in addition to the above, I haven't seen Earnie post any prices for his work, anywhere. Not even his own group. (And he didn't answer my email for a job cost estimate.)

He may have but I've not seen where he has made recommendations or condemns brands or types of flooring material.

You can all be very thankful for Ernie's input or make your own product and labor screw ups. Ernie doesn't sell material but he installs a lot. That puts him in a knowledgeable position to give material advise. Why would we want to limit this forum to people who are guessing at the answers?

Folks- here I am. If I did not answer your email, maybe I did not get it. Sorry.
Lets' start at the beginning. I have been a flooring installer since 1972- and can still walk. I'm 65+ and want to keep on going, either installing or giving advice.
I would like to be a commercial member- but don't know how- sometimes I need help.
I'm on many forums and a friend and I created the original wanderlodge forum many, many years ago.
I don't care what coach you have, I can help you make it look nicer.
As for what I charge- it is the same for anyone- if I do the work. The price is best kept off forum.
My main goal is to help folks- I can only work everyday so long and hope that my health keeps me going.
If I was 25 years younger, I'd want to get more business.
Thanks for your time. Ernie-

I, and I think many others, appreciate you sharing flooring information. Folks I've talked to don't really care to go to an RV dealer or shop to have their floors done due to the lack of knowledge/experience of the mechanics (sorry. technicians).
