Buddy took one of my pieces of Allure to his house and submerged it in a bucket of water for 3 days. Think what that would do to laminate or wood flooring? Not any issue with the Allure when he removed it from the bucket.

This stuff is made for Trailers.
Here is the Allure flooring that has been in my Escape 17B for almost two years now. New Allure Vinyl Plank Flooring | Scamp Owners International
Thanks Greg. I think your experience takes care of the environmental factors. Everything I researched told me that Allure was a great product for trailers, and now that's been confirmed by several people -- including one in 100+ Arizona.

For those considering bamboo, I have it in my stick house, and it has held up well, looks great, and went down fairly easily. The bad? - heavy, and be sure to follow the instructions and allow for expansion.

Thanks Jon. We have an antiqued stranded bamboo floor throughout our entire house. We love this product. Its extremely durable and looks as good as the day it was installed. But as you mentioned, it's very VERY heavy. I couldn't believe the weight of one box of this stuff when it was installed. Also, it's too thick for our application. I think the vinyl plank, at only .149" thick, will do quite nicely.

They will only install rolled vinyl.
