I wonder why those who complain about some extra work, still drive trucks, who always require humongous amount of maintenance and repairs


That's why I'm keeping it simple,no slide and I drive a low maintenance gas engine..Changing the oil and lube is about all it needs..6 quarts and a filter...Less than $30 on sale...I do it myself...

cost me about $10 to fill DEF for 5000 miles.
Sorry for those who can't afford it and breathe the gases.

Errrrrrr......Crash!
Another thread off the rails!

To the original question, lean, no lean, it doesn’t matter. Either you want a slide or don’t.
What leads one to believe a non slide camper is inherently more balanced any way?
Couple hundred lbs. big deal. Do you add ballast when you don’t have a passenger in your car to balance it?

This is another non issue perpetuated into stupidity in this thread.

Soo happy with what I have. [emoticon] Its perfect for me.

My wants and needs are different than most. Its just me and I only use mine for camping and not much "traveling".

Before I bought my first camper I looked at two used Lance campers, the same camper, one with a slide and one without.

May sound dumb but I didn't like the added height and extra step up to the dinette and I didn't care for the added weight of the slide.

I've never cared for diesels. Never had a desire to own one.

Gloating and virtue-signaling all in one sentence. Impressive.

I’m sure the slide mechanism itself is ok. I’m mostly concerned about a huge hole in the side, sealed by a rubber gasket.
