We had considered Allure vinyl planks but were advised that with our crazy temperature swings here in northeastern Ontario that sheet vinyl would be a better choice. Very very happy with the new floor.
In my opinion it's the exact reverse. Here in Eastern Ontario, floating vinyl floors split by the boatload. When we talked to the dealer about replacing ours, he said that the installer would glue down the vinyl to ensure that it doesn't split again.
We opted for the TrafficMaster Allure vinyl plank flooring after a lot of research. This past winter I was in the trailer at the storage lot at 20 below; there were small gaps between the planks as expected and, as expected, they had closed up again when we brought the trailer home.
