Get the slide. The maintenance issues are nil & the trade off for the extra space is 10000000... to 1. We load 2 CAN-AM Outlander's (atv's) on the front of ours & it tows like a dream. The $$$ does seem a bit high. Our 2014 21SSL Was $18,000 without tade-in maybe because they were already getting 2015 models in. Happy hunting & bring the PDI checklist.

Warning, contrarian opinion:
I want my RV to be cushy, but simple and relaxing. From what I read about slides, the tradeoff for space with possible leaks, failures, and added weight, just don't pencil out for me. I bought a 183 with no slides.

A TT without slides can work great just as a unit with slides. The big difference to me is that if there are more than one person inside it's like living in the aisle of a bus. Someone has to sit down and get out of the way for the other person to walk by.

I believe the OP has a family of 3 plus dogs - I would recommend considering a slide out. This is coming from a family of one with a TT without slide outs. It works well for me but no one is in my way of getting from point A to point B along that bus aisle.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

Well it's a moot point now. We just purchased a 2014 21ssL. Thanks for all the opinions.
