Airstream with slide-out

Are they still making an airstream with a slide-out? If not were there any issues with the ones they made years ago>

There are a number of threads on the earlier slide out models. For instance:

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f366...ry-159166.html

The new search function above works very well, and here are the search results for "slide out" which reveals a number of mentions on all kinds of diverse threads:

To my knowledge they are no longer made.

Have a good weekend.

We love our slideout. The peninsula sink takes up floor space but gives more usable counter top. I mounted a larger TV over the microwave. I use the top of the microwave cabinet for electronics like the satellite antenna controller and receiver and a WiFi router.

DW found two flip top Ottomans that almost match the leather that the second owner used to recover the sofa and dinette and they provide some more storage although we don't feel cramped for storage space. We put things in the Ottoman that won't fir or ride safely anywhere else.

Other than needing adjustment when I bought it, I have had no problems with the slideout and don't know anyone who has. The mechanism is beefy, probably overkill for the weight of the slide. Other than a few drops of water when closing the slide with water on top, I have had no leaks and have been in some serious rainstorms. The trailer is perfectly usable without opening the slide. We eat lunch in rest stops, spent a night at a Cracker Barrel, use the restroom, all without opening the slide.

We had a Safari 25 that had been modified by the original owner when he bought it to have two recliners. As a part of that mod, the flip up tables went away. There was no other seating, and we had to eat from TV trays, not all that convenient in a recliner. We wanted more space, a dinette, and more seating. The Classic 30 slideout fits our needs perfectly.
