luvshihtzus, welcome to irv2
I'm going to short cut your question down to the Fleetwood forum should get your answers there, there are some owners on that forum that should be able to answer your question.
Enjoy the forums post often and good luck in your quest.

We love Our's, with slide out just like small appartment lot's of room. Have had very few problems, and Workhorse Chassis drives great.

Fleetwood doesn't have all that great a reputation for customer support, but there are many happy Fleetwood owners....

You've come to the right website. You'll get lots of input here. Welcome

We're happy with our Bounder. So far, we've had very few issues & the ones that we've had that DH couldn't fix were taken care of just fine under warranty by our dealer. The Ford chassis with the new V10 5-speed w/tow haul, makes it drives very nicely. I would feel comfortable recommending a Fleetwood product.

I have to say we really like the new, full wall slide outs on the models we've seen at our dealer. As with any new option, we're taking a wait & see attitude to see how something so large holds up, although they definitely do make a coach very roomy. Especially those models that have a galley slide out too.

Good luck in your search & let us know what you get.

luvshihtzu, welcome to iRV2.com. We are glad to have you join us here and look forward to helping answer some of your questions; unfortunately I cannot help much with the Fleetwood one. I can agree though that shihtzus are very lovable. I am sure you will find the answer on the forum. You will find we are a group of fun loving RVers that like to help each other where we can. If you have any questions just ask. Good luck and take care.

Welcome also. The full wall slide was pioneered by Rexhall and called the T Rex. You might want to inquire on RV.Net how they are holding up for the Rexhall owners. That may give you a clue on how well the design elements work. Rexhall has had significant issues over the last few years so be prepared for a flame war. Good luck.

We have an O7 Expedition 38V that has the full wall slide. Have not had any problem with the slide at all, we love the openness of the floor plan. Don't know when or if we will have a problem with the slide, if we do we will deal with like any other problem. We had a 99 Rexhall Aerbus we traded in, we bought it new and it was a very reliable unit.

We are picking up a new 06 Excursion tommorrow with 3 slides. 2 full wall. Seems like a hotel compared to our 98 Vectra with one slide. We have been looking since last summer and talked to many owners in Tuscon and Yuma. There were the usual complaints about small things not quite right but everyone was happy with the full wall slides. I will know more in a couple of months and post any major problems.

Not too sure you have actually seen a full wall slide. You cannot have 3 slides if two are full wall. A full wall slide is approx 30' long. No-one that I am aware of has developed a MH with one on each side.

I have A Pace Arrow 37C triple slide. Very few problems and most were not really FW. issues.FW is much better now in customer service in my opinion than they used to be. I would buy another one in a heart beat.

We are the proud owners of an 06 Providence 39V full slide. As others have already noted, the best thing is the wide open feeling you get with the full slide. We took delivery of our unit in April 2006 and have had no problems to speak of with the exception of a loose gasket. The only way I would trade at this point is if they came up with a new plan with the full slide plus two more which I have been told will never happen with the Freightliner chassis.
