Correct for the GM trucks built early in the model year (IIRC prior to Aug 14) ... however, those built later and ordered with the camper mirrors do have the capability to fold electrically.
Ours was one of the early ones and we are now upgrading to the electric folding camper mirrors ... newer mirrors are chrome covered and the early are black covers.
A huge thumbs up for the bed slide! Ours has been transferred over 3-4 different trucks.
We are happier with the 2015 Dura / Allison Chev than we were with the CTD Ram which we had for two years - that could be due to dealer / recalls on the Ram or just that the GM / Chev seems smoother and quieter. However, the new 2015 Ram that we tried out did have the coil rear springs ... it didn't seem to smooth the ride to us though.
We originally chose the Ram due to the excellent reputation of the CTD and it was the last year for no DEF required on the Rams. However, the sales folks forgot to tell us that the non-DEF engines had to more frequently inject raw diesel into the exhaust stream to clean the DPF .... lowering the fuel efficiency M/G. EPA got into the mix and there were numerous recalls which further hurt fuel economy and power. After almost two years, our Ram still did not have the front end recall completed due to no parts !!! YMMV
