I have a 2000 Fleetwood Wilderness GL 30 5 G 32'. I have a 16 foot slide in my kitchen/living area. I like you was afraid if I laid a new floor, I wondered if my slide would scratch the new floor. Seeing we have similar rigs and the same company GO FOR IT. I did.
I removed the old Vinyl floor and carpet, laid new carpet in the slide and put down the Allure Vinyl plank flooring. I chose cherry. It turned out fabulous and my slide does not interfere with the floor. To be safe I even purchased a rubber backed very thin runner and put it on the floor for my slide to ride up onto just in case. But it never scratched the floor so I do not use the rug.
You will be pleased how easy and well this floor goes down. Boy is it durable.
WORD OF CAUTION: Fleetwood used a ton of staples to lay the original vinyl flooring around the perimeter of the rig and in front of the slide. Make sure you remove every single staple or nail if you do not it will show through your vinyl flooring at a later date went he floor relaxes. It will not show at first but in time it will. So gently use your hand and eyes to examine every square inch of your floor and make sure the sub-floor is clean and in very good shape before you lay the plank flooring. The Plank flooring does not stick to the sub-floor but rather floats on-top your existing sub-floor. If the Vinyl floor ever should become damaged anywhere all you need is a hair dryer to warm it up and it will peal right up: (as each plank attaches only to a small strip on the other plank) and you can replace the damaged pieces with new floor lickity split.
Good luck. If you end up going with this floor post some pictures... Best investment I ever made and made the 5th wheel far more attractive.
See my Thread: Gave the 5th Wheel a facelift with window treatments and new border turned out great!
and here is another thread of the stairs I did in the 5th Wheel:
