Which would you recommend?

I'm about to install Allure Vinyl Plank Flooring in a travel trailer. I'm undecided on which way to run the grain, side-to-side or front-to-back. Which would you recommend and why?

Long ways makes the room look longer. Side to side makes it look stubby. Just like vertical or horizontal strips on your shirt....

Long ways, perpendicular to the supports of the RV.

Someone posted a picture of their allure plank laid in a Herring Bone (think its 45 degrees). It looked great. Allure being so easy to cut it would makes a very interesting pattern. when I replace our carpet I'm going for that look, just to be different. safe travels... ed

I'm installing this in a trailer which sits vacant from May through December in hot, wet southern Florida. Others have used it and claim it holds up well if a small gap is left around the wall for expansion. I guess I'm inclined to install it lengthwise as suggested by most. I ripped up all the parquet flooring which had been glued and stapled down, and the carpeting which was installed with carpet strips. The sub-floor is chipboard, which I filled and smoothed using Durhams Rock Hard. I'll try to post a picture of the finished install. Thanks to all who responded.
