If you are talking about the 27RLWS, I couldn't be happier. Yes there are a few problems, but none that cant be easily fixed. The unit tows well, is easy to set up, and the floor plan works best for our needs. To keep the weight down, the materials used int he cabinetry are not what you would expect in your home and I ended up making a couple of modifications to beef up drawers, but with the abundance of cabinet and drawer space, over-filling the cabinets would be a challange.

One recommendation though, because the trailer is so light, get yourself a good sway control system. The trailer tends to get blown around by 18 wheelers.

I am going to spend the long weekend testing the manual operation of the slides and report back my findings.

With regard to the daylight issue, it sounds to me like your gaskets are binding and are not seating properly,
I recommend opening/ closing your slides with the tow vehicle connected and the engine running instead of "just" the battery... dry camping, especially with heat on, will run down the battery on this unit pretty quick (learned the hard way!)
