Our slide just went out for the third time in 3 years. The factory can't get us in until next year. We will live in our 2400 for 4 months this winter with no slide. That means no walk around sofa bed, wife will sleep kitty corner on partially extended sofa, I'll break down the dinette. That means we'll be making 2 beds every night, and carrying double bedding. We will lose our large living room which is one of the reasons we bought it. All we'll have is a narrow walkway to get from the front to the back. The walls to the slide will be inside the coach all the time giving us a claustrophobic feeling. We have 110,000 miles on the motorhome so selling it would mean a big loss. The PC is a beautiful motorhome with a beautiful interior but the good looks are deceiving. The service dept has treated me verywell but unfortunately they can't do miracles. For those of you who have the Liftco slide, you are lucky, they last a long time. I was told at the factory that they stopped offering non slide models, they can't get sofas that will fit.
Ron, I get it. My main point is for those that donít want a slide but want a quality unit like PC there is the option of simply not using the slide. And you are not likely to lose much if any on resale. There are rigs where you canít really use the rig unless the slide is out, fortunately PC has units where thatís not the case.
I feel the way I do with my "structural" points of concern unsubstantiated.
I do feel bad for the folks with the new slide. Really seems to be a piece of crap from all accounts. For any argument I have heard to NOT have a slide, the abysmal quality and (apparent) doubtful service life of the new slides would have ME looking for a no slide model.
