Yes, I got the Vogue in the beginning of January. I absolutely LOVE it, but Prevost is calling........

Like I said,.....not ready to buy yet (unless the right one appears suddenly!). I have a buyer for the Vogue (won't lose a penny on it either). Buyer will wait, no problem there.

I tend to do things this way,.......it took me about 20 motorcycles until I found "the right one for me". I will never buy another one, my K1200RS has everything I ever wanted in a bike (and for my way of riding). Vogue has everything too, but it's still a "motorhome". I want the Bus!

Negative comment about slides...? The operator of my coach keeps for getting to kneel the coach before closing the slides, thus, any accumulated moisture is not dumped off before closing the slide. Instead, the water surges inside while the knucklehead operator realizes the checklist violation.

Considering Removing and Replacing the operator.

You can get a coach without slides if you dont mind one built in 19 tickety two. Can they break or leak? sure. If properly taken care of with minimal care, they will work flawlessly as mine have on two different coaches for over 170,000 miles! In our service department, slide problems are way way way less frequent than say water heaters, furnaces, air conditioners and water pumps. You could probably get by without those too.

Seems to me kinda like insisting on wearing underwear two sizes too small.
Just so they are 'Spiderman', it's all good!
Oops, wrong forum! Sorry folks!

So I would like to ask for a favor,........could you post your NEGATIVE (and negative only!) experiences with slides.........like "slide won't come out" (no problem for ME!), "slide won't come in" (BIG problem if one is trying to get on the road from "middle of nowhere"), "slide is leaking" (closed or open), "my cat got crushed by the slide", "slide fell out (extended itself) on it's own going down the road".......stuff like that?

I'd like to "rub her snout" into this post.

Thanks.
I absolutely hate slides... dumbest thing they ever did was cutting a big hole in the side of the coach

all they do is rattle and leak... and they all do it... some folk just don't hear so well..

the worst feeling ever is when you get there and the side won't go out...
or when you get ready to leave and it's pouring rain and it won't come in..

seems like the in side of the coach really suffers with the slides in and makes them not so usable..

they should make a separate selection of coaches for full timers and travelers..
