We have two Honda Ranchers and they both fit. I park the first one all the way forward on the drivers side, the other one is more toward the rear on the passenger side of the unit. This allows for more space between the units and for access into the garage through the rear door when in transit mode.

I have the bunk beds in the garage. Distance between the rails is 90". Distance between the walls is 93". The distance from the rear door to the walls on the front of the garage is 11'4".

Does anyone use any of the products on the rubber of your slide out? My unit is only a year old but as the weather breaks I'll start getting it ready for the season. Wondering if that something I need to do. I do keep grease on the metal part underneath.

I pulled the trigger. I've got a 351thss on order. Hoping that its maiden voyage is Easter weekend.

Slide Conditioner

Its been awhile since I've read my manual but seem to recall the use of lubricants on the slide mech or seals is not recommended. Don't quote me on that though as I too have thought of doing the same thing. You would think even Armorall on the seal would be better than letting it go dry.
Any others out there with first hand knowledge of this maintenance matter?
Thanks and here is to a great 2014 camping season!

I was told by my dealer to use dry graphite lube on the slide mechanisms. For the slide seals and other rubber seals around the trailer I use a slide out seal lube or 303 protectant. I use the 303 on the decals as well.

Congrats on the order. I think it was a good decision and welcome to the 351THSS family. I have measured and I believe I can get my EZGO and a Yam Griz 350 into the garage. A tight fit but pretty certain it will work. The Griz 350 is the narrowest full size ATV I can find based on all the maufacturer's web sites I have visited. Its a bit narrower than the Rancher I had but the Rancher and EZGO would not fit in the garage so the Rancher had to go. A real shame as I really liked the Rancher. Still shopping for the Griz.
Anyway, good luck with the new 351. I feel confident you will not be disappointed.
Here is to a great 2014 Camping Season! Giddyup!!

Hi what do they consider an Article package or a Rocky Mountain package. Coming from BC I need to have protection from freezing even while driving.

I have the Rocky Mountain package and it consists of an upgraded 35,000 btu furnace, extra insulation, enclosed insulated and heated fresh water tank, and black water tank flush out. I think it also has tank heaters on the gray and black tank as well.
