2006 Open road 5th wheel

Im looking at a 2006 Open Road 34 ft 5th wheel and i have some questions. The owner bought the trailer because he wanted the truck. He is a young man and doesnt want the trailer. Jt is in good shape other than the slide out acts up and doesnt seal properly. Is this a big problem or can a qualified tech. fix this. Thanks in advance

It depends. The problem could be a relatively simple adjustment and/or seal replacement, or it could be frame damage that has caused things to go out of alignment (less likely, but possible). It could also be a hydraulic or electrical problem with the system that powers the slide.

If you're really interested, look for an RV tech in your area that will inspect the slide, or have the seller take it to a dealer who services Open Road to have the slide inspected. Have them inspect other systems while you're at it. It will cost you a few bucks whether you buy the unit or not, but it would be money well spent to avoid major problems.
