I also used the Allure. Much as I love it for all the reasons already mentioned and I think it looks great in my old camper without "over-improving" it -- it is HEAVY!

If I were to do it again I think I would use cork!

Allure the only way to go. It also is a floating floor.
It's a little on the heavy side and won't warp and buckle like laminate.

I also used Allure on one of my campers. I'm going to use it again in my Playpac I'm fixing up. It really turned out nice in the Avion and people think its real wood. You can see photos of it here - the little pink carpets were temporary put in by my six year old niece....

I have been considering doing wood flooring but I wonder how/what people with laminate do to stop things from sliding around on the floor when towing? I keep my bin of trailer stuff (hoses, cables etc) & my portable gas fire pit on the floor of the trailer when towing and they do not shift around on the carpet - worry that they will slid around on the laminate......

I recently remove my old linoleum and replaced it. I purchased a cheap remnant from a flooring co. for thirty bucks. I also used a cork underlay with a built in vapour barrier from Home depot, another thirty. Rather than dealing with glue I went for a double sided tape adhesive (meant for linoleum flooring) called Rhino Grip. I used the extra strength kind. The theory is you just have to use it around the perimeter. It stuck extremely well. So well in fact that I had a really hard time peeling it back so I could add a whole other role to all of the centre areas where the lino had bubble up Two roles at ten bucks, total floor redo cost of $80. Plus way more time than anyone probably using Allure. It was a light weight and very cheap solution. I like my floor it's soft and warm. If you skipped the underlay and taped properly from the start you could do it for around fifty bucks and in not much time. Trim is a different story.
