Flooring project

We decided to replace the old carpet and vinyl squares with vinyl planking. Before I install it I have a few questions I'm hoping someone can answer.
I was told in my Tiffin group that the sub floor was all the same level throughout the coach, this is not true. The areas where carpet was is 1/2" lower than the areas where the the stick on squares were.
So if add 1/2" OSB to even out the floor level, will that cause any problems with my slideout when I roll it in?
I'm going to try to find a plank flooring that is close to the same thickness as the old squares, but most of them are quite a bit thicker, will this be a problem also?
One last question, while facing out towards my slideout, I see 3 white rollers on the left side that contact the floor when I bring the slideout in, I don't see any on the right side. I know something sets on the floor when it's in because it made an indentation in the carpet. Should I be concerned about this when I add 1/2" of OSB plus the planking?
Any help or advice is greatly welcomed, thank you. Oh, it's a 2003 Phaeton 35RH

Have you thought have contacting Tiffan in regards to this. It might be your best advise regarding the rollers. Good manufactured floors with backing run at 8mm and 10mm. This may or may not fit where you are installing. The Az expert on YouTube does slide repairs in Mesa, Az all the time. If you are in that area he would be a good source. Good luck, Travato John

I have an 04 Phaeton. After pulling out the carpet and ceramic tile my floor was perfectly flat. Putting in LVP on a bias was a piece of cake. The demo of the old floor was a nightmare. Roller hight can be adjusted but I didn't need to.

Looks very nice on bias, especially compliments cabinets and hallway.
