On the other hand, floating it with a slideout could be problematic as well depending on whether the slide drags the floor around. Instructions require a 1/4" gap on the perimeter.
I have more research to do.

Your flooring looks like what I have in mine and even split like that last winter, I was going to do the engineered hard wood and glueing it down but ran out of time this summer and used a staple gun to keep it down it will hold until next summer. I have been watching Ernie Ekberg facebook page and will do it the way he does them and he does excellent work.

Just letting you know I'm still watching....

Have demo'd most everything I'm going to tackle at this time (which is plenty for me.

At this point we're looking for the right waterproof LVT and am planning to glue it down.

Demo'd the rear and found some water damage from a tub leak. Fixed one a while back. Have to check it to be sure it's still fixed.

Have pulled the slide (pushed it back in temp until the weather and my inclination meshes.

Still need to fix the front floor and slide issues. Then flooring, moving in a loveseat and reinstalling the slide. Then carpet and try to get all of the interior put back together.

Am in the the process now. Bounder 2000 36S F53. 50k.
Boss lady had enough of old carpet. Replacing with lumber liquidators core flex lpf. Nice material to work with.
Cut side of engine cover box for more foot room getting in and out of shotgun seat.. Lined it with noise and heat reducing material. Put some on the floor.
LPF is going down over everything very nice. I did not remove the other flooring as it was in good shape.
Removed washer and did behind it.

Will keep u updated.Click image for larger version

We used a product by FloorSource. Colour is called Canvas. Here is a link to a USA source. https://floorsourceomaha.com/category/lvp/

We found ours at a local Home Builders supply store.

Thanks. Our installer is recommending Karndean, but I can't find a color I like.

Making slow progress. Got the floor laid (not trimmed yet). Now working on the slide repairs. Hope to have it back in soon. Then carpet in the bedroom.

FYI, out of curiosity, (because of the expansion/contraction issue) I cut a plank of the Home Depot LifeProof LVP to exactly 30" while inside at 70 degrees, and then threw it outside one night for a couple of hours at -5F.

Then I measured the length.

29-15/16. 1/16 contraction with 75 degree change.

So, you don't need a big edge gap, but you do need one, unless you install at whatever max temp your rig might hit while buttoned up tight in the hot sun. If you do that, you'll only ever have to worry about shrinkage.

Bobby F good test for expansion. I did a float installation and never had an issue. Did allow for 'some expansion ,in RV's we don't have vast areas like in a S&B . Something to remember, everything around the floating floor expands and contracts too.
