Slide-outs, floor level vs raised

Why are some slide-outs almost floor level while others are raised up several inches? I am looking at some new campers and found one I like but the slide-out area is several inches higher than the main floor. Anyone know what I mean, I hope I am making myself clear?

I have a Cherokee that the slide is up about 3-4 inches. The mechanical slide unit is mounted under the slide out and bolted to the floor. The flat or level one it is mounted under the camper. They all need maintenance at times and not sure which one is better. I have owned mine for 2 years now and have only had to lube the slides and nothing more. Hope this helps you.
