What is under our carpet in Vista Cruiser MB Edition

We want to tear up the carpet in our 2005 gulf stream vista cruiser mb edition to lay down vinyl plank floors. Did anybody do it and does it stick? I don't know what is under carpet wood or what? The carpet is down tight and hate to tear it up if the vinyl plank floor wont stick.

Probably plywood.

But my question to you is....The flooring we've put down floats, ie you don't glue it down.
Yours is glue down????

floating floors are designed for the do it yourself business. the reason being that anything floating will not telegraph any imperfections in the subfloor.
I'm a professional flooring installer and all of my installs- it is adhered. Old school, dude here

Didn't know that.....so you are saying if you installed "Pergo", for example, you would glue it down?

glue down vinyl planks not wood

We wanted to use vinyl planks not wood flooring .We want to glue it down too. We hate the carpet and through this is a lot easier to keep the floors clean then carrying vacuum cleaner with us.Just sweep it out.
