i am trying to figure out the best way to start...against a wall or in the middle and work my way to the wall...HELP...SOMEBODY!!
Do you have a translation of "trilor"?
And maybe a hint of what you're trying to do? If this is flooring, there are instructions either in the boxes or on the boxes.
Or you can go to the website of the manufacturer to download and print them out.
Short version, you start at a wall and work accross the room, centering the wall cuts, staggering the end cuts.

Most laminate floors need to be started against a wall. If you can start against the longest wall. If you can give me more detail I may be able to offer more suggestions.

Back to topic please guys. The site rules prohibit razzing people about incorrect spelling, which I was trying to point out in less words in an effort to not be too moderator-ish.

Its been discovered that it doesn't matter what letters are in between the first and last letters of a word, the human mind can sort it out!

Back to the subject! Are we talking about a towable trailer with slide outs or are we talking about a mobile that is moved twice in its lifetime?

If its towable, with slides, care should be taken that there's room to operate the slide, with the floor in place. For a 'mobile' home it doesn't matter!

One type of laminate floor that I laid, required a 1X3 furring strip be screwed to the floor as a starter strip. It was placed in such a position, that its edge was 3 courses from the starter wall. After the floor was finished all the way across, the 1X3 was removed and the space was back filled. Only ran into this type of flooring once!
All the others were started at the wall, using wedges to allow for expansion space.
