New Flooring Thickness for Slide-Outs

I have 2002 Keystone Montana. I want to replace the carpet but am not sure how thick the flooring can be before the slides will cause damage etc. I live full time in an rv park and do not want to have to put my slides in to find out if someone knows the thickest flooring I could use. It currently has carpet and I wanted to use something like marmoleum or cork click floating flooring which is usually around 1/2 inch or less.

Thank You,

I use 3/8 engineering wood and I make a ramp for the slide rollers to go on.

Can you look at another slide to get a good idea how it works. Make sure it is the same type of slide.

i do not have rollers. my slide goes up onto a little ridge then slides along that. which seems to leave a decent amount of room for most flooring besides thicker hard wood. i am wanting to get flooring that is floating click cork that is .28 inches thick. it looks like it will be fine but was wanting to know if anyone has experience with this. or if i could get a thicker flooring which is a little cheaper. thank you.

I have a 2019 Highland Ridge Open Range 5th Wheel. The RV has vinyl flooring throughout. Problem is that the vinyl on edge of one of the slide is warping upward. Anyone else experiencing this, and if so, what can one do about it?
