We have never had a problem with our full slide in our two year old Winnie.

The Liberty Bridge on the American Coach Chassis is in a class by itself and makes their reliable wall slide possible.

That is the biggest reason why he will always opt for quad slide rather than 3 slides with a full wall slide. It's stronger!

I have to agree.. As a mechanical engineer I can see all sorts of issues due to the large unsupported span and the loss of all structural integrity in the wall.

We've had zero problems with our full wall slide which carries the entire galley, the dining table, and the 40" tv. The only slide out problem was with the smallest (bed), caused by a wire pulled off the back of the switch.

No problems

Zero problems with my full wall slide in 7 years. Those who say they can't work are usually those who have never had one. Four slides have become popular but they make your under awning space restricted and you still have that narrowed area at mid coach. That's the beauty of the full wall slide.

I have been to the factory at fleetwood. All I can say is the beefiness of the structure around the full wall opening as well as the slide itself is pretty impressive. Fleetwood has been doing the FWS for quite a while now, and the service mechanics pretty much will tell you is that they have been very problem free. I would not hesitate to purchase another FWS again. With the exception of a minor failure of one of the brackets attaching the slide ram to the slide assembly, it has been problem free in over 72000 miles. My FWS is on the curb side, and one of the best features is that there is a lot of real estate for fleetwood to attach a very large awning to, and none of it is lost to the protruding slide. If there is one downside to the FWS, it is the size of the topper, which is hard to keep taught. When there is a little bit of wind, it really does make quite a racket, as well as contain a lot of water when it rains.
