I have notice that the Schwintek system isn't used on the 36CKTS and the 38FB2

We have the 38CK and love it. You have less counter space than the CKTS but it's enough. The pantry is to die for. 7 deep rollout drawers which accommodate more stuff than you can imagine. The hall closet stores a lot more stuff. The CK is a bigger trailer with bigger slides, at least the bedroom one. Downside is not enough natural light in the foyer and you have to pop a slide out a bit to use the bathroom at a rest stop.

Also the CK has a Jack and Jill bathroom that is handier than you might think.

Not sure by what the Schwintek system is? Going to do some research. Ok did a bit of research sounds like the Schwintek controls the in/out of the slides. And sounds like they are a big problem. Who wants a stuck slide? So I gues we need to check to see what kind of system they use on the 38CK. We are like everyone else, you spend $$ on a unit that you do not want to have major problems with, especially when traveling.
Thanks for the info and will keep researching.

Ok, we think we are understanding you correctly. You can't use the bathroom unless you open the slide a bit. We will check this out when we go for our look see. Sounds like poor design. Any other 38CKers have thoughts on this issue? Thanks these are the kind of issues we are interested in knowing that one does not think about at the time of purchase. Can you get to the refrigerator?

If you can't summon the energy to push a button to open a slide a bit, you should probably just use a public restroom. Just saying that it's no real inconvenience. You can get to the fridge without moving a slide. The Swintech slide system is one of the best there is. IMO. Very popular. Uses minimum space and digital computers to operate it.

Its not an issue of summoning up the energy to push a button to open the slide it is a matter of design in my opinion. Convenience or inconvenience is a matter of personal choice. Still researaching the Schwintech slide system reading many pros/cons.
Thanks for your thoughts.

I understand, what you get in exchange for the inconvenience is the huge hall closet that is part of the bedroom slide. It has to move in someplace and that place is the hallway. If you are on the road for long periods of time. You'll understand the value of it.

I don't see any way the bathroom/bedroom slide could have been designed to allow bathroom access. The slide extends past the bathroom door a foot or so, to the edge of an angled wall. The bedroom slide isn't any longer than it needs to be for W/D, bedside table, and bed.
We noticed it before buying, but decided the trade-off was worthwhile.

YMMV.

Thanks all for your thoughts pros/cons. When we go to look at the units hopefully we will be able to make up our minds. Again thank you it would be a dull world if we all liked the same thing. Happy camping to all. If there are other from anyone else we will be happy to hear them.
