Airstream with slide-out

Does anyone here have an Airstream with the slide-out? I wondered if there were any particular problems with them, or how people who might have this type of trailer liked them.

This topic has been covered on numerous other threads. Try searching slide out using the search function above.

Some folks really like them and some don't. There have been some reported problems, but the newer ones seem to work fine. We have a 2005 28' slide (no longer made) and after 2 years have had no problems or leaks. The AS slides are built much more solid than the SOB's I have seen. We really like the additional floorspace it provides. Keep in mind the slide out adds a lot to the tongue weight so you may need a beefier tow vehicle.

I must be doing something wrong when I search, because I get "page 1 of 100" with nothing that I can see to do with slide out or tip out. I tried that before I posted my question.
Is there a trick I don't know? Forums are fairly new to me, so I could very well be doing something wrong.

Click on search in the blue bar at the top of the page. Click on advanced search. Where it says keyword, type in slide out. Click on the arrow below that where it says search entire posts, and select search titles only. Click the search now button at the bottom of the page. You should get about 42 threads relating to your search keyword. Probably 2/3 of those relate to AS slide outs.

We really like our 2005 Safari 28fter with the slide. We have used it extensively and haven't had any problems (knock on wood). The slide enhances the livable space. Wouldn't like to go back to a non-slide model.
