Laminate in Mfg. Home

Want to install 850+ feet of laminate flooring in my 3 year old "double-wide" home.
Solid with no shifting at this point (on concrete runners foundation).

My question: do I need to lay the laminate across the "marriage" seam of the home's two halfs or can I run in the same direction of the seam (length wise)?

Floor is absolutely level the entire width of home with no part of the seam raised.

Thanks.

Which ever direction you lay the flooring, you should have a transition gap at the seam. This will accommodate movement. A T-mold is installed in the gap.

Thanks for the input.

So, the T-Mould is what I use as the transition strip?

T-mold drops in gap between two flooring surfaces of same height.
