How many slide outs does your current RV have?

Some RVs these days are being built with five or six slides. What in the world would you do with all that space? Well, we suppose we could think of a few things…

Some people insist that their RV have at least one slide if not two or three, while others don’t like slides at all—keep it simple!

How many slides does your current RV have? We’re curious.

Our first rig a 2000 Allegro had one slide and it seemed roomy enough. Our next rig a 2011 Georgetown had three and we were amazed at the openness of that rig. Now our current DP has two slides with one a large living and dinette combo and one for the bedroom. Plenty of room.

We are full timing in a 41’ fifth wheel with 5 slides. We love the spaciousness it gives us and storage it provides. We are not stationary and travel on average of 25,000 miles a year. If we had a sticks & bricks and only vacationed in an RV we would opt for something smaller with less slides but this is our “tiny home”.

We have one for the dinette in our 23’ TT, I don’t trust the ones that use 4 little motors or the cable operated ones. SIL had one of the the little motor ones that he and I worked on for a month because it would stop about 4” short of full retraction. Finally after many calls to manufacturer, it was determined the wiring harness was pinched during installation causing the wrong signal to the controller. Computerized control! They’re great when they work, but…

I have three but it is a little deceiving. That’s because one is a full-wall slide.

Slide-outs weren’t even made when my MH was built. (1977)
If and when I get a newer unit, it won’t have one. They’re nice when they work but it’s something else that needs maintaining.

One slide in the living room/kitchen/dining area (main salon) on the curb/door side, one in the bedroom on the curb/door side, and a full-wall slide that is on the street/driver side that extends from just behind the driver seat to the rear bathroom (i.e., through the bedroom). Five years and counting with no problems from any of the three slides.

First TT had one. Never had any mechanical problems whatsoever.

Current TT has 0 and I’ll never have another slideout. Maybe its different in the hi$ rigs, but every one i have looked at leaked atmosphere like, well like it had holes in the wall.
We like to push the envelope, hot and cold, and it is SO much easier without trying to heat or cool the campground.

We rarely put our one slide out if we are only staying for a short (one or two days) time. The slide incompases the living room sofa and the dinner area. There is adequate access to everything with the slide in. We like this set-up.

We have one slide-out that doesn’t need to be out to sleep. We specifically wanted that.

Super slide for couch and dinette with an opposing kitchen slide in our CLass A, and the bed is on a slide in the back. A fourth one for the bedroom cabinets would be nice, but I can’t see having less than three in a Class A.

I’m curious if people with ‘full wall slides’ experience failures more often than those with standard or superslides, as my wife refuses to consider them for fear of system failure.

Actually less on ours because it is hydrologic. No gears or motor problems.

Our current rv is a truck camper. No slide. We had a fiver with one super slide. Sure miss the added room. Recently a friend got a new truck camper with a slide.what a difference few square feet make.

I have had two trailers with one slide out and zero problems with them.

Our first trailer (a 1997) had no slide and one door. I swore up and down I would NEVER have a slide, and laughed at the idea of two doors. We bought our current trailer in 2012. It has one slide and two doors. I cannot imagine living without either one of these options now.

The number of slides are unimportant. It is the extra square footage that matters. I have three slides, the two rear opposing slides are full slides that almost go the entire length of the back half of the coach. The bed slide is also a full slide, but is only a bit wider than the king bed.

We are full timers and have 5 sliders on our RV. We always feel like we are coming back to a real home because of the spaciousness.

We have a grand total of none, zero, zip, squat. And never had an issue with one either. Pretty sure it’s gonna stay that way.

I bought my coach because it DID NOT have a slide.

Me, too! I had a fifth wheel with three slides and always had leaking problems with two of them. After that, I was determined to never have another RV with slides. I now have a Lazy Daze.

Thanks!
Would’ve liked the next model up with dinette and fridge on Slide but 500 lbs too heavy for current F250.

Mine came with two. I’m thinking of adding another. (LOL). But because we have an east-west bed, we must extend one slide when we stop for the night. It makes lot docking at cracker barrel or Wal-Mart an additional challenge. I need to make sure it will open over a non-parking spot, so I don’t have to worry about someone driving into it.
