As others have said, it's generally not a problem with slides on both sides; very few sites (if any) are that narrow to cause an issue. However, keep in mind that a passenger-side slide intrudes into your camping area.

Couldn't a driver's side slide be worse if you had to move the whole trailer over to miss the utility pedestal?

It does NOT cut off the back 3rd... That is just not under the awning.. we set up camp and have never not been able to use that " ground" near the rear slides...

Just like anything else, IF you wanna find an issue with something, you probably will.... If you wanna adapt to something, you probably will . .


read the whole post. I said it may or may not affect you depending on how you camp.

if you in parking lots then alls good, but the biggest thing I said that you ignored is your at the mercy of the shape of the site. most of the forest sites I get into with my 40 foot 5th wheel have weird shapes and slides on the pansenger side would reduce the area you have to sit around a fire or not in over 70% of the sites.

If i camped like you in that picture there wouldnt be an issue...

I have parked on ONE site that was not wide enough but it was still not a problem

The rig beside me also extended "over the line" with his slides out so to walk between (IE to access hookups) you walked a "Z" pattern That's in 15 years

Had a few where I had to pull forward/back a bit

The advantage.

You level. then extend slides on ONE side. the rig may "Tilt" that way
Slides out on both sides. Tends to be easier to keep level


Home was where I park it. but alas the.

We're looking at buying a new or slightly used TT. Is there any issues with RV's slides on both sides?

My wife thinks they may limit us because some parks may have restrictions on slides on both sides.

Do multiple slide owners have any insights?

Cheers, Scott


Answering the OPs question, SPECIFICALLY in re: "some parks may have restrictions on slides on both sides".

Never found that - or even heard of it. Never stayed in a park w/o sufficient room for slides on both sides of the RV.......also many DPs have 4 slides (or 5) - with slides on both sides........
Sorry, we can't accommodate you - or want your $$. Not !

If the TT is in good shape at a good price, and meets your reqs - don't sweat the small stuff, cheer up and for it.

Slides add weight to the unit. 2 slides on current unit Class C Winnebago still going strong 20+ years. Make sure you have strong batteries and don't go cheap to operate the slides.

Newbie hit and run post. Great conversations but value lost to the OP. I know some newbies get scared off with the gruffness of some posters here, but that's not the case on this thread. I always find it odd why some newbies take the time to crate an account and post but never return.

When operating my opposing slides when not connected to shore power I have my truck running and connected to the 7 way plug. My truck provides 14.2V to the battery when the battery is full. Am I fooling myself thinking this helps? I use a single Walmart 27DC in good shape.

I once stayed in a park where there wasn't room to put my awning out, but never not enough room for all slides. (on edit: there was one site we were assigned where the next door neighbour had his trailer on the line and his street slide extended over our pad - we couldn't get onto that site even with the slides in. Office gave us a different site)

OTOH, when we overnight in a parking lot somewhere, there isn't enough room to put out our street side slides. Our galley slide (curbside) doesn't go out any further than our front steps - we need steps to get in and out.

Often there isn't enough room to put our ramp down - we need to unload motorcycles before we park.
