Is vinyl flooring typically glued down?

Wife and I have a 2013 FR Surveyor Select SV-301 that we purchased back in March. After returning from a recent outing, I was leveling the trailer up in the spot we keep it at our house. I typically just put my level on the coupler to check for front to back level. For some reason I decided to double check it on the floor just inside the door. When I went in to do this, I noticed the vinyl was not down flat on the subfloor. It was like it had air under it in an area roughly 4' x 3'. It was probably pushing up around 3/8". It did lay back down flat after about an hour though. I'm wondering if air could somehow be getting in under the flooring while towing and sort of "inflating" it in that area. My question is do they not glue the flooring down and does this seem to be a potential problem? Any insight will be really appreciated.

We just got back from Goshen and a factory tour of the Rockwood/Flagstaff plant. We were told that they glue the vinyl in several places, but do not completely cover the sub-floor with glue as that would make every seam in the sub-floor show.
