As an owner of a 27' 4x4 class C I would be/am concerned about the structural weakness caused by cutting up the coach frame for slides

That all depends on how the structure is designed and built. You make it sound like they take a box and cut a bunch of square holes in it.
Unless you have a Tiffin...........Then you can see the stress cracks right from new.
Very bad joke..........

I could be wrong but wouldn't you have to look long and hard to find a class A coach without a slide unless it's over 10 yrs. old? PS. I love the living room slide on my old Dutch Star.

They had those issue when they first started installing slides, but have that pretty well figured out now. That would just be the first of a long list of things I'd be concerned about 4 wheeling with a MH....

When I bought my coach It had to have at least one slide and room to get around the rear bed on both sides and a tag axel. It also had to have ample room to move around inside with the slide in. My 98 Fleetwood Pace Arrow foot the bill and we have been very happy with it. I don't think there are many people that would buy a coach today unless it had at least one large slide. Just my $.02

We bought ours less than 2 years ago. We specifically looked for a DP with NO slides. The way this one is set up it is actually very roomy inside. It has a side aisle, which is uncommon, so that you cannot look from the driver's seat all the way to the bed in back. With the side aisle we have a kitchen that is bigger than most apartment kitchens I have seen, lol.
