34.2 Miramar Large single slide opinion or issues

Hi All - New to this Forum looks like lots of great answers, what a group. So .... hoping the following possible purchase wont be in vine ( Thor 2017 34.2 Miramar ) 10K miles. My question is concerning the single large slide and stackable washer and dryer that sit on the slide. It seems this could be a problem down the road. There are definitely some interesting comments, but wanted to ask the pro's who have been around in these rigs. This W/D is a must have for us.

We have a 2016 Miramar 34.2 with 22 K on it. Stackable washer and dryer, no problems so far. We are the original owners.

Full length slide here as well...zero issues. Thor engineers actually designed the 3-Trak System and got an exclusive on it. I think they finally hit a home run on this one. Other than leaks or other small, non-motorized things, you hear very little issues with them. Just research the used coach thoroughly...why after just 10K did they sell it? May be all for the good, but dig in.

Just keep in mind one thing. I have heard this comment from a couple of RV repair techs at the independent RV shop that gets my business. You will still have not just electrical but plumbing connections that will be moving back and forth. Eventually, these lines are destined to leak. Something to keep in mind. I cannot speak about that particular slider mechanism as others have other than to say that none of these sliders let alone the full wall slides are bullet proof.

Thank you for the heads with Thor tracking system

Thank you for the heads with tracking system, helps with my decision to buy. We are pulling the trigger and buying 34.2 2017. The seller are older, apparently their son and grand kids have moved to the mid west, and no longer need a larger unit. I really have looked it over and can work on most anything if needed.
They are having sprinter/ Van built.

Congratulations, good Luck. We spent January and February of this year traveling from New York to California and exploring everything in the middle. Just check on the windshield wipers and the entire motor, brackets and support frame for the motor and linkage. We had an episode during a heavy rain storm, the support bracket broke at its weakest point and the entire system failed at the worst time. Fortunately we located an RV repair center who repaired it, delayed us a full day, but the end result was positive. Thor paid for the repairs after we filed a claim. There is a recall we now are aware of, just giving you heads up. Other than that, the unit is fantastic. Leaving for Florida in 2 weeks.

We bought our 2015 34.2 (our favourite floor plan after a 2 year search) our slide has been great, except the time i blew a fuse, the controller is in a middle bay under the slide, we pushed it in and out several time by hand, until we read the manual again and found the fuse and checked the plugins on the controller. Btw: you can plug them in backwards, you know when you press the in button and it slides out! Anyway to your point, I've got big kids and they seem to gravitate to the couch and table and it has been doing fine. And yes our wipers currently have a recall, for free repair.

Bratmanstudio:

I have a Miramar 34.2, which I bought new in early 2017. My thinking was: If slideouts tend to be a problem, why not just have one big one. Hopefully that will be less problems.
Well, that has been the case. Not many problems, and we have done 22,000 miles, which includes a 14,000 mile rt from Florida to Alaska. There is not too much you could ask me that we haven't experienced, but overall, a "B" grade for the Miramar. The weakest point is the Instruction Manual. They really don't tell you anything about your particular rig....you have to learn a lot of stuff on your own, and it helps a lot if you are 'MECHANICALLY INCLINED'.

Go for it, Jim
