Default Slide outs

Hi TCer"s

I was out exploring the HDT idea for awhile but the wife and I are back to the TC camp.
Can you give me some insight on the depth of the slide and functionality of the coach when closed up? Example, are two 24" opposing slides functional when closed or is it too cramped? VS two 18" etc. If you can tell me your situation and how well it works that would be great.

Thank you
Speeno

I can do fine with my 2 slides closed. Main slide walkway is about 30 inches width minimum, clear all the way from cab pass-through to the bedroom with the slide closed. I have not measured my slides specifically, but I think the main slide is around 36 inches depth of extended space. The BR slide is only about 18 inches depth, and when closed the foot of the bed is right against the cabinets, preventing ability to walk around. So just climb over the bed if you need to get to other side.

Thanks 38, are your two slides sufficient or would you prefer more? I know everyone has different needs but I just appreciate all points of view.

I have a 12ft long 36" deep slide in the living room on the driver side and nothing on the other side. My kitchen sink and counter is on the passenger side so when its closed up there is about 30 inches of clearance to the counter. I like this setup vs. the opposing slide outs as I have lots of room for a walkway when closed up and going down the road and when open there is over 5 feet of space in the center.

I also have one in the rear bedroom but it slides out the back of the camper. I needed more length in the unit so rather than mount it to come out the side I have it come out the back. It moves 30 inches. Here I think I would have rather had done a side slide out for the bed and a small slide out in the rear or other side for a closet.

If you are near a Renegade dealer you can take a look at their stock Verona models for ideas on the depth of slides. This model gives you full access to the kitchen, fridge, and the bathroom with both slides retracted. Renegade dealer websites such as IWS Motorcoaches and Transwest put the drawings on their site.

Thanks, how does that layout work for you? Is that a single axle?

This layout is almost perfect for us. The large kitchen area with full access to everything with the slides in means we are not restricted to RV Parks for overnights. Rest area/truck stops are available. It also means we won't be too inconvenienced if a slide breaks. You can even open the bathroom door with the bunk slide retracted. The coach is on a Freightliner M2 106 chassis, single axle, 309" wheel base, GVW 34,300, GCVW 60,000#.
