21FBRS slide-out unstable??

We were looking at a Flagstaff Micro Lite 21FBRS this weekend, and the sales person demonstrated how the sofa folded down to a bed. The slide was extended.
I sat on the edge of the flattened sofa, preparing to lay down and check out the comfort. As I did the top of the slide moved in about 6 inches and the front edge of the couch moved down noticeably!
The sales person could not explain why this occurred. Surely this can't be normal.
Any ideas?

how do you know the slide was fully extended out?

and did the trailer have its stabilizers down and tight?

X's 2 I can't see how that can happen unless it wasn't in the extended position they rock forward to sit in a tray to say it best to be flush with the floor. And yes that is not NORMAL !!!
