Need advice on Holiday Rambler Slide Systems

Does anybody know what type of slide system the 2017 Holiday Rambler Vacationer XE 32A Slides have? Can't find anything on their website about brand, technology or the way they work. Are they robust and dependable slides? We were thinking of buying a THOR MH but with all their slide problems we're starting to get cold feet and looking for alternatives.

I have a 2015 vacationer with power gear slides, they have been quiet and dependable.

I haven't met anyone yet with a THOR that was completely satisfied or hadn't spent considerable time fixing this or that...including a recent meeting with folks who had to replace every screw inside their coach just to keep things together.

From what I've seen single motor gear driven slides are the most reliable. Our '04 HR has this setup.

Those that have multiple drive motors tend to be the worst. Seen countless brand new units with slide issues and their owners none to happy that their new rig has to spend prolong periods of time at dealers awaiting repairs or having to take them back to the factory for reworking.
