If you need that more space something is wrong. I paid a lot of money to have one installed. I think they are great but all of the things that is said on your other post are true about not being able to put things that are too tall in them. If you have two then you probably would want to remove one.

Like most things, there is a tradeoff off to get ease & convenience. In this case you lose some space, especially height. You pays your money and you takes your choice...

I have one and wouldn't be without it. It really helps getting at stuff when the slides are open.

I added a second one but it is a half/size one side pull out only instead of the full pull out on each side of the other. This gives me lots of options.

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who dislikes his roll-out. I haven't yet removed it, but I probably will eventually. I could use the space far more efficiently without it. Mine doesn't go all the way back in the space and I lose ~3 inches of space because of the height of the tray off of the bottom of the storage compartment.

I've thought about removing mine since getting the 5er in 2002. Now I'm glad I didn't. I've developed some back problems over the years and it's difficult for me to reach way back in the storage area and pull out our heavy recliners. Now I just pull the tray all the way out, put the recliners on the back of it along with other lighter things on the front, and I'm ready to roll! Works for me!

You just have to be selective on what goes in the bin with the slider (s) and what doesn't.

frequently used things (grill, tools, bug wash, etc.) are on the slide while things not frequently used (air compressor, extra hoses, etc) are stored in the basement.

Slides cause you to sacrifice space and they limit arrangement of items in your basement
