Super slide vs. Multiple smaller slides

Hello all I'm new to the RV World and I am researching floor plans in class C and was wondering about slides. For instance the sunseeker 3050 had a full wall slide or super slide on one wall while the sunseeker 3010 has a smaller slide on one side and another slide on the other side.

So here are my questions
1. Does a super slide cause your coach to tilt too bad to one side?

2. Do super slides break or have more issues than smaller slides?

3. Other than slides being over your access panels for storage are there any other disadvantages to slides super off any size?

I know coaches have jacks and leveling systems but do you habe any other recommendations for accessories or after market items for slides?

Thanks all.
Ritchie

WE have a full wall slide and love the open feeling it gives you.


Yes we do have to compensate just a little bit when leveling as we do not have leveling jacks but easy to get used to. And yes getting to some of the under slide storage can be awkward sometimes but again you learn to work with it.


We would not trade our full slide for two smaller slides.

Thanks momdoc. The extra space looks awesome but I was just wondering with a slide that big if it made you're coach lean to one side while driving? Especially not counter balanced. The wife and I will decide based on lady out but thought I would ask others what their experience has been

Rich , I have a lance 1181 truck camper with a slide out , and I own a 2012 Sunseeker 3100 SS ( single slide ) , In all my experience as long as your rig is level before you extended the slide out -out , you should be good to go

I does not make any difference when driving as the slide in and "stowed" or at least it should be

I have a FW with a medium size slide on one side and a large on another. I am concerned about long term. You can see that smaller slides are easier to operate by the mechanism. Actually, Thor uses special mechanism on the Class C with bigger slides. Look at Thor web page. I think more weigh would cause more problems as years go by. We will see and hear about it either way years down the road.
