Unless it leaks. Slides have a special set of maintenance requirements.
Just be sure the used camper is sealed well (big maintenance issue) especially the slides.

Same as everyone....get the slide. We looked at the 183 and then saw the room we had in the 233S and it is night and day. I could not imagine not having the slide at this point. We camped twice in the rain with a 10 year old and a 2 year old and 4 adults inside and we were ok. Makes all the difference in the world.

Only thing is, imo, the prices are a little high. We bought our 233S for around that new down here.

Why not buy a new 21SSL from a place like RVWholesalers? You might actually save money over the used price. I think they sell to people from Canada all the time and can walk you through it. Kelly Tussing is who I've dealt with and have been well taken care of.

I saved $12,000 on my trailer from RV Wholesalers vs buying on lot up here, well worth the look. That savings is delivered as well.

I don't know how you guys/girls always say you saved money buying from RVW?...I called them. The price I was quoted for a 21ssl was $22,500ish plus another $3000ish for delivery to
The border. So after conversion to Canadian dollars it was barely less than the $26,900 for the same unit on the lot here in Canada??? Where is this big savings I always hear about from some Canadians buying US direct?

Definitely go with the slide. I started out with a Coachmen Spirit of America with no slide as my first travel trailer. It looked like it had all the room in the world, until the first couple of rainy days camping in it. It gets tight in a hurry when you are all crammed into that tiny space and the kids are whining about having nothing to do. You won't regret the slide.
