Question Appliances on slide outs

I am still in my research phase of my search for our new trailer. Looking at floor plans, I see things I like and dislike. I've seen some floor plans that have some, or all of their appliances mounted on the slide outs. This just doesn't seem right to me. It just seems like it would be a problem area. A constant source of issues. And these islands seem like a recipe for disaster.

So, my question is this. Can appliances be mounted on slide outs reliably without issues?

Hmm, maybe I'll try out the poll feature too.

I can not answer your question correctly because no one makes appliances without issues.

biggest thing I have read is that sometimes the gas line for a stove/oven will get kinked because of the in and out motion and cut off the gas.

I find the islands to be nice if you need the extra counter space but we make due without it because we like the floor space.
