Flooring project

We have a 2003 Phaeton DP with one large slideout(dinette and sofa bed) and I'm planning to tear out all of the carpet and old linoleum. I just finished installing 1200 sq. ft. of Pergo extreme in my house and have several boxes left over.
First, is the floor throughout the entire coach the same level excluding the slideout or will I have to use underlayment to even things out? Second, the Pergo comes with a thin padding on the back so I'm wondering what adhesive I could use to make sure it sticks.
I don't really need to use the Pergo, but I have almost enough to do the whole coach. It's a great product and I hate to waste what I have leftover. Thank you for any advice or comments.

My 04 Phaeton the entire floor was perfectly flat and one level. I did have to float a little leveling compound behind the console where the entrance step cover retracts. My LVP just floats and is not glued down. Demo of the old carpet and tile is the biggest part of the job.

Happy to share more info if you want it.

Yes, I used Coretec LVP (https://coretecfloors.com) and they offer several different styles of trim pieces. First I fabricated my own wood quarter-round to install in all visible places but ended up replacing it with their quarter-round for a better finish. The Coretec is a premium product that snaps together, is water proof and has a cork backing. Other products were recommended by several but water proof was the deciding factor and has worked out to be the best choice.

We used that product in our S&B bathroom & sunroom because they claim it to be very stable - no expansion & contraction due to temperatures. And excellent UV protection from fading.

I think it is a great product. We've had it installed for a couple years now with zero issues. I installed it in some areas with zero room for expansion (door thresholds & trim) and it hasn't moved. The cork backing gives it a soft feel. And it feels warm in the winter, cool in the summer.

I would just be concerned about the rollers pushing it down a little and causing the slides to get out of alignment a little. I know it only gives probably 1/32" so probably isn't an issue, but I feel that give every time I walk in those rooms, and I only weight 150 lbs.
