We've looked at, just not sure I like the colors/patterns better than real wood. We like the bamboo Tiger Strand.

Newmar replaced the laminate floor three times in our 2000 DSDP due to poor workmanship at eh factory and the dealers. The last time I paid an independent shop extra to use real tile.

The second replacement was due to the flooring being ruined by water. It wasn't Pergo, but even Pergo isn't water proof as the cats proved in the stick house.

Allure comes in SO MANY styles now that I am thinking the same for the Salon in my Outlaw.
Trafficmaster Allure

There's even an "industrial line" - very cool!

We already used it in 2 bathrooms in the stick house after we discovered that a local grocery chain was using it in their produce sections...seeing it in person in their stores made us take the leap and after almost 2 years of hard daily use (me the Mrs. and 2 Saint Bernards!) it still looks like new! It was SO easy to install...only used a straight edge, carpet knife, tin snips, and household scissors ( we have on of those stick homes with LOTS of angles inside).

I noticed that my local Home Depot doesn't display all the styles, but they said you can order anyting from the flooring counter.

I installed Allure in my older Class C. Loved the product. One note of caution after a year or so, the rollers on the front edge of the slide started wearing through the surface due to grit that got imbeded in the roller. Slide closed you did not see the marks. With slide open there was a 1" by 6" rectangle that was scuffed. It was a minor irritation but did not override the advantage over the old smelly carpet.
