Really like the 29HFS - couple of questions

I have been doing a lot of internet browsing on the TH subject. One main constraint I have is the overall height of the unit. I have covered storge at my house for 12'. Been looking hard at the WNP models and they will work but it looks like the Hyper Lite line of bumper pulls are relatively low at 11'2" give or take. The 29 HFS has really caught my eye. A couple of questions.

1. what is the side wall construction method?
2. With the slide all the way closed and you still walk by / open fridge
3. Prob dumb but - can the slide be open part way? manually?
4. ceiling height inside the unit?

TV will be a 2500 6.7 CD 4x4 - Also have a '15 Tundra CM 4X4 (wifes) but looks like the poor Tundra due to it's payload limitation won't have the cap to tow most of the units I am interested in - bummer

I can't answer most of your questions but can tell you that your slide can be stopped at any point on the way in or out. I'm sure the others will be along soon to help on your other queries.

Yes still get to fridge with slide in and never paid attention to ceiling height. I'm 6'1" and plenty of room, just watch the pass thru doors as they are only couple inches above my head. Side walls are aluminium framed with fiberglass outside and foam in between inside and out.

29hfs is fully usable with slide In only access blocked is slide side bedroom door - but you can access bed room thru other door and a couple cabinets blocked off when slide in - others wise fridge, stove seating garage access is all good to go ---

Questions already answered but would add... Outside wall are a ridged laminated fiberglass or philon (sp?) outside with vinyl wall covering on 1/8" luan plywood inside... very thin gauge aluminum frame structure filled with foam; about 1-1/4" thick but surprisingly strong I might add.

I don't know how big they are, would they fit on a ladder rack?

Then he'd need a new truck too. Now, to some that's an exciting proposition. Others, not so much...lol...
