It is funny how many late model million dollar coaches we see around that have no slides. I don't get it but different strokes is what makes the world go round.

With wide body and the long length they have, they have the room without the trouble of opening a slide.

10-12 poeple in an RV? No thanks, it's camping sit outside. TV? I really hate the TV when I'm camping. So many other things to do, I can watch TV at home. DW has the opposite view, so I do have TVs.

Do you all find this to be true?

there may be other threads on this and if there is, please direct me.

thanks much.
I assume you mean slide outs, not pop-outs

And some of them can indeed be a PITA.. I know I've often posted that I buy shear bolts by the dozen for mine.

But. is it worth it... YES!

We have had both, no slides and slides. We prefer slides. Went from none, to one, to 3 and now we have 4 slides.
More room and only had one problem in the years we have traveled. It was fixed in about 3 hours with ordered parts and at dealer. We were a year out of warranty and the company paid for the repair and parts. I don't think many people have problems with their slides.
