Putting Laminate Flooring Over Brick Subfloor?

We purchased a mobile 2 years ago, and decided to put different flooring in the living room. We started to take up the rug that is there, and noticed there are bricks down. We haven't pulled the whole rug up yet, just because we're not sure what to do next. We wanted a laminate floor put in.

The floor does feel uneven in some spots. There doesn't appear to be any particle board or wood of any type down, but we haven't pulled up the whole rug. What would you suggest our next move should be?

I would put a wood subfloor underneath to even it out, and then put the laminate

I have never heard of a mobile home having brick flooring so this is a mystery to me but perhaps the mobile home is stationary and the previous owner did something like this(?)..

If there is a brick floor then it would stand to reason that it must have a sub-floor underneath the brick.
If you feel the floor is stable and still want to put laminate you may have to add a subfloor if the bricks are uneven. There is also some types of laminate foor covering that has a foam backing that might could be used.
I think you should take some pictures and pay a visit to a couple of floor covering companies and ask their advice.

Is it real brick, or a brick tile? If you get to much weight, the floor will buckle. If you remove it, you need to consider the thickness as you may end up with doors to short.

Do you have a picture of it?
