Height of Wardrobe Slide

A simple question. After looking at Forest River's webpage, I'm interested in the Rockwood Fifth Wheels. I like the wardroble slides, but the location gives me concern. With most of them on the curb side of the RV, I'm worried about absent mindedly walking into it. Can someone give me an idea how high they are? I haven't been able to see one in person yet. Thanks in advance.

They're not like headboard slides that are flush floor..they're raised above the floor.

The bottom flange of the wardrobe slide on our 8280WS is 76" high with the camper level on level ground.

BTW, welcome to the forum!

Clearly I'm vertically challenged that I don't even notice the slide when walking around on the door side.

The height of my wardrobe slide is the same as Dave's. I'm 5' 10" and have never bumped it. If you're closer to 6' 4" or taller you will need to do as others have done install some noodles on the corners.

Thank ya'll for your replies. At 6'-0" I should pass under it, but if I get one I'll put something on it as a precaution in case someone else should walk into it.

Nice to know that I'll never have this problem if we ever purchase a model with a wardrobe slide. I can walk right underneath it.
