Sorry for the late reply - it's the SLIDEOUT
Adds considerable tongue weight - a big issue for many tow vehicles. You might really need a dually because of the excess weight. Forget the slide and the 34 is a great choice.
Most experienced RV techs say at least three expletives preceding the word slideout. They leak, they jam, they short out, they leak some more, they fly open while underway... Slides are nice IN campgrounds. They don't travel well. SOB or Airstream, they are great in concept - not so much in practice.
Sent you a PM too.
