I REALLY like the main living area of the Allstar, but worry I might regret not having a bedroom slide.

Any thoughts on owning a motorhome with one slide?

What about the age? The newest Allstars are 2009’s. I’ve heard motorhomes take a BIG hit when they hit the 10 year mark. Is that as big an issue as I’m thinking?

Our old gas coach had just the main room slide and really liked the bedroom with as much room as I have now. Naturally a different floor plan with the whole rear closets and drawers, as well as end table drawers. This one with a full rear bath with closet and drawer space, then drawers at the foot of the bed with a corian top, creating the need for the slide.
We bought our present at 9yrs old and now at 11yrs, NADA low book is still above what we paid. So the key is obviously in what you pay for it, initially.
This 10yr rule thing comes from people who finance and with many banks not loaning on rigs over 10yrs old. This can be used as a bargaining tool and like in the next year or two, my buy here, won't be worth anything....blah, blah, blah!
