Pergo or allure flooring winter storage

Hi out there has anyone experience with the above flooring types ability to withstand subzero winter storage.
I'm considering installing it to replace split linoleum/vinyl flooring in the galley area of my 2004 Georgetown 34DS - the spliting was as a result of the same winter storage conditions.

i put allure in our previous fiver...but i never left it stored in freezing weather
I had great service from the flooring over all

in fact i installed it in freezing weather but the coach was warm 70F
i would think that if its freezing in the coach you might want to do a warm up with the heater prior to walking on it or driving around that might make it flex.
I think freezing temps on any vinyl floor product is pushing its reliability

The Bruce laminate flooring in our old rig has seen down to around zero F but that's about it. We always keep a small space heater going in our rigs and keep the temps close to 50 during the winter to avoid problems with those kinds of temps. The added expense on the utility bill is well worth it to me to avoid problems with our expensive RV.

I would be interested to hear what acadianbob has to say about his trailer and sub-zero temperatures, and what precautions be takes. He had -20 a couple of nites recently.

If the temperatures get into the single digits here, I run a heater on low so hopefully I won't have a problem.

we've not had a problem. our trailer is an '08 so this is its third winter. it regularly sees -20 and the occasional -30; sometimes for a week at a time. it is stored inside in our barn but un-heated. thus far, no issues of any kind. trailer is a surveyor.

the only thing i do is the standard winterizing of the water lines; drained tanks; disconnect the battery and hook up a battery minder. nothing special and no heat of any kind.
