There was another poster that posted about the slide bottom tearing. Sent it in for repairs but it was just as bad when he picked it up. Been in the shop 4 of the 8 months they have owned it.

Putting a pebble surface on the sides is as dumb and the material they used on the bottom.

I didn't see any of that at the show in Greensboro NC this weekend. We are going to the one in Raleigh next weekend so I will have to keep an eye out for that.

Don't that make it hard to walk on the bare floors with silicone on your feet.

Hilarious memory of the movie Down Periscope when the cook sprayed "pam" on the deck and whistle britches slipped and busted his backside wide open.

When I was looking for our new trailer. I noticed this slide sidewall material. It reminds me of the pebbled bathroom plastic like paneling.
I asked the salesman about this and he indicated that a lot of the "entry level" models had this type of material. He said it was strictly a cost savings measure. We have noticed it on several of the Forest River models at recent shows. The color was a close match on some. Saw a toy hauler (XLR) I think had grey sidewalls with black and red trim, the slide out walls were this pebbled material in black.

Our new Rockwood still has the matching slide sidewalls as the rest of the trailer.

I think this is just another cost saver that really is going to be a problem for owners.
