Replacing carpet with snap together planks

Is it possible to put snap together wood planks to replace the carpet in our 2002 Monaco Cayman without gluing it down? Pros and Cons? If not what type of material would I use. Wife has asthma carpet has to go. Also would like to get rid of the couch/bed it is hard as rock. would like to have soft chair that reclines and mounted on the living room slide that is 26inches deep and 69inches long. Any ideas would help. thanks keeney

I wouldn't recommend wood planks .

We installed wood grained vinyl planks that snap together , designed to float ( no glue ) and are water PROOF !

Easy clean up , no problem if something is spilled and the flooring is hypoallergenic .

Very happy with the results . See attached photo. Sorry , the program rotated the photo 90 .

I used Pergo brand snap together vinyl planks. I stapled them around the perimeter of the floor but maybe I didn't have to. 3 years now and no problems.

Very happy with the floor.

We just had our carpeting and vinyl sheet floor replaced with glue down (not self sticking) Earthwerks LVP. The planks look and feel like oak. The flooring company which installed it for us is used by the local RV dealer. The company did not recommend locking or floating flooring. So we glued it all down. They used quarter round molding along the walls Looks great in my opinion, and more importantly the DW is very happy with it, she waited long enough for it.

LVP (luxury vinyl plank) is an excellent choice. It snaps together and is water proof. My whole floor floats (no glue) except for the entry bullnose and planks that butt up to that bullnose.

We have an older 2002 Bounder 33R. Over the past 7 years of ownership, my wife and I have done 3 flooring jobs, as we could not stand the carpeting in the RV. It was a good thing... the carpeting had all kinds of dirt that would not vacuum or steam clean out (this is true with all carpeting in my opinion). The first floor replacement was to put down the stick together vinyl that you get at Home Depot. Not one I would recommend, as it looks nice at first, but when the Texas summer heat hits it, it gets gooey and buckles. A year later, I took all that up and put down a heavy click together vinyl that I got from Lumber Liquidators. This was a much better floor than the first and worked well, but after 3 years, the DW decided that the color scheme in the RV needed to be brighter, as the cabinetry was cherry wood stain and the floor was also a darker, duller brown color. A year ago, we decided to make the change to brighten things up, so we went to Lowe's and purchased this water-resistant wood laminate... https://www.lowes.com/pd/Trafford-Oa...ing/1001149270

Installed as a floating floor with securement along the walls with an underlayment.

We are VERY pleased with this....and with my wife painting the cabinetry in the living/kitchen are to a Behr Chic Gray color and putting in gray new day/night roller shades, things are looking REALLY nice....

Just want everyone to understand that " Water Resistant " is not " Water Proof " .

We went with the water proof vinyl plank after having our dish washer leak on our Pergo wood plank water resistant floor at home .

The Pergo swelled and never went back to the original profile .

Wound up replacing the flooring.

Today I would never consider anything but waterproof vinyl flooring for anything (I own 10 apartments) except for carpet in the bedrooms. If you want to see if the flooring is waterproof, get a sample and take it home and put it in a bucket of water for a couple of days. If it swells it's not what you want. I have Pergo, or some imitation thereof, in one of my apartments and it looks like crap because it's gotten wet, and it's in the living room. When you put down any kind of vinyl laminate you need to ensure that the floor is perfectly smooth. Any imperfection you can feel in the floor will show through in the flooring eventually. Good luck.
