Allure flooring questions for any one who has used it

I was pretty convinced this is what I was about to use. I brought samples home from home depot. I Was looking online for the color I was thinking about laying to send a email to a buddy and found a pdf file on installation and found this. You cannot install allure in solariums/sunrooms, over carpets, or any exterior application including seasonal porches, camping trailers and boats. The allure adhesive must not get down to 15F (-10C) and must not reach higher than 95F (35C) for an extended period of time. If there just covering worried from a warranty stand point that I'll live with, my motorhome sits out side all the time , worried if the glue will fail. Has anyone installed this in hot to cold climate areas.Here is the link to the actual product

TrafficMaster Allure 12 in. x 36 in. Red Rock Resilient Vinyl Plank Flooring (24 sq. ft./case)-216116.0 at The Home Depot Thanks for any input Al

Its not a glue down you have to leave a 1/4 gap around the edges for expansion, the seams have a glue strip to make the pieces one piece , im worried about the durability of that strip

We put the oak plank Allure flooring in our class A nearly two years ago during a hot humid July week in Illinois. Has held up great, no problems or regrets. Have also camped in extreme cold weather with no problems.

No experience with Allure, but we just had this stuff put down in our home...
Metroflor Engage Vinyl Plank.



Click together, waterproof, no glue, and tough.
Only downside is its is pretty dense... almost a 1/4" thick, so dont confuse this with the thin stick down stuff!
More info and finishes here.

nightriderrv nice job on your floor, what did you do around the toilet lift it and put it underneath or did you calk around it, Calico that's good to hear, I don't want to go thru all the work only to have it come apart after the cold of winter or the hot of summer. Keyair I wasn't sure how that style would work with the vibrations of going down the road

I put done Allure in my rig a couple years ago - been through some rough weather and it's still going strong. I did get a bump on one seam after some severe cold so maybe the warning has some merit - but I put a few heavy books on the spot for a day or so and the spot went away. I think Allure is a good product for RV.

The Metroflor is tough as old boots and I have no worry it can handle everything. It has a long warrantee.

Only down side to it is that its heavy stuff..

Installed Allure 3 years ago. Helped several friends do their Class A and 5er install. Everyone is happy with the install.
It is floating and does not like to be nailed/glued down.
Here is a link to pictures of the install. There are pictures of other installs on the site.

In our Class C I elected to leave the carpet in the drivers area in place.

The only downside I discovered with Allure is that it shows any debris you track in. We discovered that putting in some throw rugs really helps - it will collect sand etc that we and our dogs track in and we can periodically pick them up and shake them out.

I also figured I would put throw rugs down, I ride atvs and want to camp with them, carpet just isn't a good mix, I figured it will be a lot easier to clean, ronjhall thanks for the great link I see you lifted the toilet, you have a ring for the bolts like I do I think ill give that a try verse calking

I loosened the flange and lifted it up and put the floor under it come to find out the flange was busted so I'm going to replace it out, I milled out all the baseboard and shoe molding myself.
