I donít like slideouts; so much so that I offered Thor to pay extra for them to delete it from an Axis 24.1, but they declined. Multiple times.
I donít like the way they look on the outside, particularly when extended, donít like the way they look on the inside when retracted, and really donít like the way they crowd floorplans when pulled in.
Essentially, they all leak, itís just a matter of how much and under what conditions. For me thatís a serious problem because after a few years, many motorhomes with slides start to smell damp, and that affects me far worse than most people.
When listing RV problems, slides usually rank #1. Itís data you can look up, not my opinion. That in itself doesnít discourage me because I could fix most problems, except that doesnít address that I simply donít like them anyway. A motorhome with slides pulled in looks like chaos to me ó highly disorganized. To each their own; they are not for me.
Having said all that, in that size motorhome the other option without a slide has a corner bed which I also donít like. That would be a tough choice for me, but if traveling alone I think the corner bed wouldnít be as bad as when traveling with a partner. My wife and I have camped with corner beds and didnít like the inconvenience at all.
Note the listed MSRP is almost $7,000 higher for same bed and bath at rear, except one has slide and other a corner bed. Otherwise very similar floorplans. On second thought, if traveling alone Iíd take the 22HE, save about $5~6k, and get the bathroom on the driver side where it makes more sense to me.
P.S. ó I admit being biased against slides in many ways; more than I care to list.
