Maybe a 2000 or 2001, but probably not 2002 and later. Especially in the larger sizes and better brands.

The Hurricane 30Q has no slides, moderately priced to match the amenities and materials used.

I have mixed feelings about slides after reading about leaks, breakdowns (stuck in or out), etc. However, my next unit will have at least one in the living/dining area.

My 2007 Mirada has no slides. Best bang for buck when it come to price. Having said that, wish I had more room in the kitchen - dining area.

Been looking for sometime in for someone who can make my 4 person dinette a 2 person. Will give lots more room but can't find anyone to do it,,,, :(

I resisted getting a MH with a slide for a long time. Then a couple years ago with encouragement from the DW I got a Bounder 39Z with a couch/dining table slide. What a difference it makes on interior space. Now I like slides and probalby will until such time as I have trouble with it

We have boondocked many times with our slide out, doesn't bother anyone and gives us much needed room in the dinette/kitchen area. We need at least one slide because DW and I need the extra room to walk around without tripping over each other. If you are solo and have plans to stay that way I suppose you don't really need any slide outs.

Buying a 2000+ Class A without a slide would be a personal preference. I have seen many used available in my area, and they can be quite a bargain because almost everyone wants at least one slide when they are shopping for a used coach. Actually I think most people want multiple slides nowadays.

Think about your future plans and if you're sure you don't need one (or more) shop around, you'll find a great deal.
