Question? We are thinking about downsizing from a 35 ft class A to a 22-25 ft mini. We have never had a unit with a slide and most units in this size range do not have slides. The downsize is my wife's idea but she worries that no slides would make resale in the future more difficult. I know a rv is not a financial investment as depreciation eliminates profits, except for enjoying the unit. We have been trying to sell a 1995 Fleetwood MH, 35 ft/no slides and have have NO luck. Most calls ask how many slides then say no thanks. On a small class c are slides that much of a factor?

Perhaps not, in that size range, but the new ones usually have a slide, even in a 24 footer. Four Winds, for example, has three 24 foot floor plans and each has a slide. Four Winds Citation

Well, the slide adds an amount of floor space when you are camped. Our Winnebago View 24H has a slide, and is a lot more functional because of it. It's not as impressive as the quad slides in our Vectra 36RD - but it's still very useful.

How important having slides in a 'C really comes down to you and how you intend to use your unit. We have a 26ft Lexington with 2 slides. While we can use our unit with them in and often do when over nighting at WallyWorlds on long drives, having the sofa slide out in the front and the bed out in the back makes it a lot nicer for two humans, a dog, and two cats
My suggestion is to look around and make sure the floor plan you choose fits your lifestyle regardless of the number of slides.

Just remember that slides add weight .That reduces carrying capacity.Room is good but so is the ability to brin clothes.

If the manufacturer is just flinging 3000# of slides on the MH without re-engineering the chassis and upping the GVW, it's time to find another manufacturer!
