Thor Learned It's Lesson? - Slide Re-Design Tuscany XTE?

Was reviewing the brochure for the newest 2016 Tuscany XTE & it looks like Thor has redesigned the slides back to the "old style" hydrolic type slide mechanisms (under slide vs. side rails?). You can clearly see in the photos the drop down on the slides vs. the straight bottom edge in previous models like my 2015. I also looked at my local dealers web site & saw several 2016 XTE's with the new slide design & a couple 2016's with the old design. Thinking this might be a step in the right direction for Thor?

In January we were told by Mark Stanley the new 2016 would be coming with the new hydrolic slide mechanisms. I was skeptical based on the last year of dealing with the 2015 lemon (with 60 items on the list wrong/broken/missing), sitting in my driveway. Today we received notice a new 2016 would be coming off the line soon to replace our 2015. We will see how that goes. I will most definitely nit pick every detail from top to bottom, front to back on this new coach!

Check out the new pic's on Thor's website & also their brochure for 2016.

Good to hear you are FINALLY getting some relief...
my Thor product only relieved us of a lot of money and time and heartache.

FYI - we've had the schwintek slides on 3 different rv's and no issues except on the first one... the dealer found the mfg had not cut the opening wide enough and that caused all the problems - worked great the rest of the time we had it.

Our 2017 Thor Miramar 34.3 mistakenly came out of the factory with the two slide system. The slide never worked properly. This is a big mistake on Thor's part and has left the dealership the arts and crafts burden of making it into the 3Trax system. Now we are concerned that the slide will never operate the way it was advertised. We now have to look into the motor, roller issues, etc... Ughhhhhhhh.... Really poor QC issues - and has taken all the wind out of our sails.....
