Can laminate flooring be used in a mobile home? Need help on how to do this!

My husband and I are wanting to get rid of our carpet in all of the areas of our mobile home. We were wondering what would be the best route to go...... Laminate flooring? Tile? Peel and stick vinyl? It is a 1998 model with particle board flooring. It has had pets in it, so there are going to be places that will be need some type sealant to keep out odors. If anyone has any hints as to which would be better to use......laminate, tile, or vinyl....we would be most appreciative! Also, if you have any hints as to how to do this procedure.....that would be awesome!! Thanks so much!

Vinyl plank style flooring might be a good choice. Normally nicer looking than most peel and stick vinyl floors. It also doesn't have to stick to the floor..it sticks to itself. This is the kind of product I mean...TrafficMaster Allure Blue Slate Resilient Vinyl Plank Flooring - 26235 at The Home Depot There are many other styles and colors.

Laminate and tile will require major rework of your subfloor.

There's a brand of tile you could use called snapstone but it's spendy ($5 or more per square foot), otherwise tile would be a lot of work, as Vic said

Maybe consider engineered hardwood. Unlike laminate it actually is made up of real wood and it can be floated over the subfloor like laminate. Also, it can be refinished in the future.
