It looks like you have to have the slide out in order to use the bed. We havenít had a slide before, would there be any time when this is a problem?
I would welcome any comments, suggestions.
Many models/brands of coaches use the folding/sliding bed. Our friends have one in their Winnebago Journey. The mattress doesn't suffer from being folded, or a better description....bent, but their mechanism has been problematic since new.
We've never liked any mattress that cam new with our coaches, as the manufacturers usually install a pretty cheap mattress. We've changed out the mattress on each coach. Soooo.....make sure you can go to a better quality mattress that will bend for the slide operation. Many are happy with foam, which should bend fine.
Lastly, there may be a rare occasion where you can't put the slide out or need to bring it in. One would be in a bad storm, bringing the slide in to prevent damage. Another time might be in a tight spot or while sleeping at a Rest Stop or Walmart.
