I have a 1966 White Star. My Reno, has turned into a rebuild. (Didn't know about VTT before I purchased) I have removed the split old asbestos tiles. I am considering laying vinyl planks (floating floor) before I put walls up. Any advise?

I don't think I'd use floating planks. They will expand and contract much more in the high temperature variance of a camper (assuming humidity isn't an issue for vinyl) and if they are under the cabinets, they will have no where to move but at the seams. Maybe use glued vinyl flooring which comes in a lot of styles?

I used this type on our build. When just a floor platform in place, it was the easiest floor I've ever installed (I've done floating floor, vinyl tiles, and ceramic tile in my house). We used one large sheet/roll of vinyl, because I wanted to reduce the risk of a neglected spill seeping into the subfloor. Bonus is that it's cheaper.
Install was straight forward: Smear glue on the plywood with a notched trowel, lay out the sheet of vinyl, and roll/press with a weighted roller (rented from Home Depot). Nailing/screwing through it when installing walls/cabinets/etc. wasn't a problem.
