Installing Wood Laminate Flooring

I have the laminate flooring and we are getting close to installing it. The big question is which way is the best to lay the laminate,
from side to side
or
from front to rear

I think front to rear will be harder to do, cuts around things are more difficuult and will make the MH look longer
My wife thinks side to side will be easier, and make the MH look wider
What have to guys done?????
Pictures please

I once looked at a class C, it was front to rear and I could tell where the floor was not flat or sub floor sections replaced even tho the owner did a great job of installation

I have seen brand new units with it put down both ways, unfortunatly they were all slide out units that we looked at and the slide outs were open.

Looks great, good to see something outside the box. What brand model is the additional hear unit?

I think length wise is the the way too go. Makes the space look longer. Is this actual laminate or a material like "Allure"?

It's Allure, A friend put it in his RV and I thought is was wood until he told me what it was.

The white propane heater in the pic is/was original equipment. It was in RV when it was purchased new in 1992, but I don't know if Fleetwood or the dealer installed it. RV also has very effective central heating, so this extra propane heater is a bit overkill, imo, lol.

Off hand I can't recall the model number. If you zoom in on the pic you can see the manufacturer is "Medallion" (heater bottom corner).
Can look for more info tomorrow when I'm back at the RV. :-)

We used Allure front to back with slide. Side to side in the driver and pass area.

The "experts" say to lay it the long way. I did that with Pergo in the stick house.
