New DP without kitchen or utilities on slides

Are there any new DPs being made that don't have refrigerator and/or plumbing on slides? I read about so many problems with slides that it seems that in this case less might be more.

My DP has the refer on the non slide side but the rest of the galley is in the slide. I haven't had any problems with the setup

Years ago, when slides were just becoming popular, there were many reported problems. Recently, with the newer technologies, there are not nearly the reported problems. Most coaches have the refers off the slides due to the weight. I have never had a problem in my kitchen due to the slides.

i had been looking for a non-kitchen slide but unsuccessfully. ended up with one fridge sitting firm and kitchen and sofa on a large slide. it didn't have issues with plumbing but had one time embarrassing - in a body shop right before painting the slide to match with the body stripes, it won't come out

Fleetwood Excursion doesn't have either on the slide. Just the couch, cabinet and TV. At least on the 35b. Since almost all manufacturers are putting heavy stuff on the slides, I wouldn't worry about it. IMHO

Our galley is on a slide. No problems with it at all.

Our refer is not on the slide, but the galley is. We haven't had any problems.
