Doesn't look like it is extended all the way and with the slide, you are not going to get much benefit.

What is in that slide?

Can you get by with the slide closed?

Kinda defeats the purpose of the slide if you can't extend it wouldn't it just to use more awning? Not a very good design IMO.

I agree, but if you are outside why have the slide out kinna defeats the purpose of the awing, no?

Just not a well thought out design. Awning out, slide in, move all the chairs & picnic table, etc. next to the coach. Slide out, move all the stuff back out away from the coach.

The awning doesn't look extended as the material is not taut but is drooping.

Yep. Bad design. Not a speck of shade on the ground below it and no room for chairs. Wow.

The XL 378TS has the same design. The awning is out of reach without a ladder and doesn't provide much cover except behind the slid.
