Ha, it's a toy hauler! I knew it.
You keep a pony in the back to turn the windlass that operates the emergency retract.

It looks like a disaster waiting to happen.

Be careful. Hitch weight is 3485! A bit much for even some 350/3500's if you want to have some left for passengers and cargo.

LOL!

And it only has 2 axles! I agree, that thing looks like a disaster waiting to happen!

Oh boy..That Slide must weigh a ton! 2 slide mechanisms, 1 within the other? I wonder if they both move on a single screw and motor or if there are separate screws and motors for each slide? I hope the manual cranks work well.. just in case.

and I'm worried about the weight of the 12.3 ft slide in the 38fdds i have on order..

You are so wrong LOL look around you, old guys like me and my old crow with grey hair own the biggest fifth wheels, the biggest trailer and the biggest class A diesel pusher you can find. Camping equipement get bigger and bigger as soon as the kids goes away , go figure..... you'll see one day

Maybe I'll feel differently in a few years. The other thing that occurs to me is that as time goes by (and kids move out), I'll probably want less trailer, not more...

But you never know... maybe my wife will end up with that kitchen island someday anyhow...
