how to install laminate/Allure flooring in motor home

Hi everyone!

I just purchased my first mh, (2004 Damon Challenger 348W with 15,000 miles on it), and I want to get rid of the carpeting. The carpet is in great condition, (as well as the rest of the coach), but I have severe allergies and carpeting is just holds to much crap in it.

I know that many people have posted their results for installing a laminate/Allure floor. The question I have is this:

Some people say that you should glue down the flooring, especially if your in a warm/hot climate. Is this true? Also, after searching the forum, I noticed that most people recommend Allure flooring over laminate flooring. However, the post that I found were 4 - 5 years old and I was wondering if this is still true.

Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I put down Allure about 7 years ago, without glue and no problems in heat or cold.

zogthegreat,
my slideout has scratched through the color top in several places. I posted about my installation several years ago. I used doubleback carpet tape in the front and around the stairwell.
