Installing laminate on uneven floors is not the way the manufacturers say it should be done. But sooner or later someone is going to install their laminate over a uneven surface.
A lot of homes have floors that are uneven. Old houses that settle over time is a good example. Mobile homes are notorious for uneven floors, especially where a double wide mobile home is connected in the middle. Even concrete floors can have humps and dips.
Manufacturers specify that the floor cannot vary by 1/4 inch in a 6 foot radius. The reason is because the joints will move when installed over uneven floors and break over time. This would probably happen with some cheap inexpensive laminate flooring.
