Replacing carpet with laminate

I want to replace part of my carpet with laminate. Should the laminate be glued down or should it float? I have installed a lot of laminate in homes but never in a rv. Please help.

Is there not any below the carpet? A lot of times there is.
But I've always layed down a thin layer of glue with a toothed trowel. The one time we tried just the edges it didn't work well. But glue all over and staple the edges down with quarter round around all edges to keep it from curling.

I had my carpet replaced with laminate a year ago. Nothing was used to hold the Laminate down. The Laminate is made to "Float" or expand and contract. There is about a 1/4" gap next to all walls and 1/4 round is used to hide the gap.
