Jayflight SLX 267 bhsw...how far does the slide out extend

We have a brand new jayflight slx 267 bhsw. We haven't used it yet and cant slide the slideout all the way out in our back yard, it will hit the fence.
Cant pull it forward as our driveway slants too far t level it well.

Does anyone know off hand what the measurement is from trailer to slide out when its completely slid out?
thanks

that's actually a great idea

Off that topic but I am looking at this model now. Can you get to the bathroom when the slide is in?

Now this could be an important tip on positioning your TT when you go camping. Cut a (dowel or stick) the same length or a little longer than your slide out. When you arrive at your campsite and there's a tree or the water/electric service in the area of your slideout you place this ( dowel or stick) on the ground out from the tree or service so you can see it in your mirror when backing up. Line it up with the edge of your tire when backing up and you'll always be far enough away to extend your slideout on the first try.

I believe so. We looked at the same model when we were shopping and not being able to get to the restroom with the slide in was a deal breaker. This trailer was on our short list because you can basically access the necessities (the kitchen, bathroom, and permanent sleeping quarters) with the slide in. We were considering short over-night Wally World type situations where we wanted to use the trailer to sleep in, but couldn't or didn't want to run out the slide.

Great idea on the dowel for measuring your slide out. Another idea is to mark your broom (you DO have a broom right?) to the correct length. Or heck, a broom itself is probably close enough on slide out length without even having to mark it. Then you don't have to carry a separate special tool. Lay the broom down next to the nearest obstruction, and line the tires up with the bristles. Good to go!
