Sorry... I left out an important detail.
My entry and kitchen came with vinyl while the main living area and bedroom had carpet. With three dogs and being full time... the carpet had to go.
I wanted a "flat floor" look from nose to tail of the coach but the floor under the carpet was just a bit lower than the OEM vinyl so I used a 1/4" plywood underlayment where the carpet had been to make the sub floor level from front to rear of the coach. The plywood is held to the coach floor with sheet metal screws and the plywood gave me a base into which I could use carpet tacks to secure the planks to the underlayment.
I also used a leveling compound where the underlayment met the OEM vinyl flooring for a smooth transition.
