Replacing ceramic tile floor with Pergo in an Motor Home

My motor home has 12" ceramic tiles in the kitchen and bathroom areas. Several of these tiles are cracked. How do I remove the ceramic tile in order to replace it with Pergo? The tile goes under the cabinets so I will have to cut it somehow. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Not a great choice of flooring for that application. Consider sheet linoleum instead.
Laminate should not be used in a bathroom or kitchen.
The tile can be cut with a Toe Kick saw with a diamond blade.
Crain Tools | Specialty Saws | No. 795 Toe-Kick Saw
Home Depot rents them.

You have a lot of choices in flooring but will need to select it from ones rated for outdoor use.
An RV is subject to wide temperature swings that indoor rated products can not handle.

We are going to replace some carpet in the LR area of our recently purchased pre-owned fifth wheel with something like this.
You will find a fair selection but might have to search at flooring specialty shops.

An installer familiar with this product may be able to advise on whether it is possible to lay this product on top of existing tiles.

Allure can technically be laid over most hard surfaces. You will want to have it smoothed out underneath, though. You can take the time and fill in the gabs between the tile, or use another thin underlayment between the allure and tile. Any unevenness will show up on the Allure otherwise. And if you have any heater vents that kick a lot of high heat out, you will want to make sure there are no allure seams right there, because it will soften the glue strip, causing it to bow up.

Knowledge: We replaced the floor in our older RV with allure.
