Ron, ok so tens of thousands of units with slides, some whole side slides. I have yet to read where the roof couldnít support the weight of the ac units. Weight of the slide on a 2552 loaded as an example is a non issue. We drag more crap along that we never use and are never close to max. Heck we pack so heavy I usually place a case or more of wine under the bathroom sink. I have a dinette so thatís a nine issue as well. I havenít had any leaks in 74,000+ miles and itís now 10 years old.
Now onto the price difference. You said itís 5 grand more. I have no idea if the exact amount but we will use your example. Being the market calls for more units with than with out how much of that 5 grand do you think youíll lose when you sell? I donít know if itís possible to find but I wonder what the price difference would be on say 2 exact 2552 units with same mileage (say 50K) when one has a a slide and one does not. Which sells faster as well and for more? Just how much do you lose? And letís not forget if you bought the rig to save money on vacation you made a very bad decision to begin with.
And for Peteís sake they can flat bed 45í rigs if need be or simply disconnect the drive shaft and use a traditional tow.
I get it your anti slide but many of your reasons have minimal validity.
