Flooring underlayment 2008 Southwind

DH and I are considering taking out the current laminate in the bathroom and kitchen area and replacing it. Does anyone know what underlayment they use in these coaches? DH is leery of ripping it up without some idea of what is underneath it.

It will generally be plywood or OSB. I would take off a piece of trim at the stairs or somewhere two different types of flooring meet and see what you have. You can damage either one if you aren't careful. If the laminate is glued down heat should help but be careful with high heat. Good luck.

Try peeling up a small area under under the kitchen cabinets. I recently drilled 2 holes under there to install a diesel heater in my 2005 Bounder. The linoleum was glued down to what looked like a double layer of 3/4" plywood.
