Beaver Bedroom Slide

Is it true that a 2006 Beaver Monterey Pacifica lV was made with the slide mechanism in the passenger side bedroom slide that is exposed when the slide is in? There is nothing covering the slide mechanism.

My 2008 Contessa has the mechanism covered. Just a large piece of Cherry trim to cover the box at the top . (Assuming that is where you see the motor and cables).

Like in this picture.

I found this youtube video of a 2006 and it doesn't have cables like ours does Captjake....and there is a shot of the interior and I don't see any exposed mechanisms.

The open area is before the bathroom (if you were walking toward the back of the coach) it's vertical, from top of coach to floor, about 2 feet or more in width, and inside there you can easily see the arms for extending the slide. Seems to me to be a safety issue as well as aesthetic. Salesman says he's seen same situation on couple other Beavers in the past, but I find that hard to swallow! Seems like the opening needs a piece of paneling to hide the inner workings from view, and it would stop things from falling in there.

Yes, that is totally different than my set up. I am unfamiliar with that set up.

Also try calling Monaco. They are wonderful at helping to answer questions like that.
