          I have a Class-C with slides, so far no issues, but curious what others thoughts are on RV slideouts. Do I have a maintenance nightmare coming my way? lol

              There are pros and cons with the main pro being they add more space in a cramped environemnt. But they require maintenance and they will eventually have issues that require repair, like getting stuck and leaking. Im sure people will chime in that they’ve never had an issue with slideouts in their XX years of camping, but they are very prone to issues. Ultimately, its whether the potential hassle is worth the extra space.

                  I participate in a few large RV communities and groups online, and one of the top 3 issues that come up are slide issues (not a very scientific conclusion, but what I’ve noticed). But that doesn’t mean they don’t serve a purpose and like Bill said, they may be worth it to you.

                      I appreciate the room I get from having slide outs. They are worth it to me. But I’ve never had any issues. Knock on wood
