We traded our Winnebago ERA C for an LTV Serenity for similar reasons. The slide ripped our flooring twice while under warranty. Air leaked around it. Dust and dirt that accumulated on the sides of the slide while out came inside the coach when it was closed (the awning only kept moisture and leaf debris on the top of the slide from entering the coach). We realized the slide was a maintenance issue that would hang over our heads and was not worth the worry and risk to us.Obviously NOT an irrational fear. Slides are just another system waiting to go bad. My first motorhome was a 40’ Beaver Monterray with FOUR slides. By the end of my ownership I had had the three hydraulic slide cylinders rebuilt and the electric bedroom slide wall leaked continuously.
Current TB has NO slides.
New TB on order has NO slides.
