Slides certainly add a lot of room on the inside. The MH my wife and I have do not have any but I think we have plenty of room for the two of us. It will hurt the resale value though.

Our 2000 Winnebago Journey
I've replaced the front tv with LED flatscreen, installed a flatscreen in the outside entertainment bay, removed dinette and installed chairs, converted from 30 amp to 50 amp service, converted overhead florescents to LED lights, several other small things.
Planning to keep for many more years.

Thank you for the compliments. We too like the lighter colors inside and out. Rarely use any lights inside during the day.

There sure are some really nice looking older rigs out there. One thing for sure, the whole RV industry and RV designs changed with the advent of the slide out. My 1992 HR is one of the last ones made with no slides. By 1994, I think, slides were pretty much standard.

The good thing is, it made a pre-slide coach very inexpensive. Harvey (the H is silent) is my first MH, and will likely be my only MH for some time to come. While it was top of the line and expensive when new, I was able to buy it for $7K. It's in top shape, and was very well cared for.
A combination of a bad economy, high gas prices, and NO slides made it very affordable.

My 97 has no slides, and I like it that way, less to go wrong and for the two of us there is plenty of room

I had a 99 Dutchstar, and loved it. But I had 2 outside mirrows.
