I don't know if something has changed but I have a 2013 Reserve and I bought two rubber door stops when I first got the trailer and I couldn't even get the tips of the stops under the slide. Because of this great forum I was concerned and called Schwintek about stepping on it closed and they said it wasn't a problem. That was over a year ago. Called today because of this post and again was told the same thing. Also the height difference between the TT floor and the slide seem to be the same whether the slides in or out. Again not trying to start an argument just don't want the OP to worry because he sat on it once.

I don't know I have theSchwintek and when all the way in and you step on it i can see and feel a little flex in it. I don't think that wood is very thick and feel it could could crack.</span>

I have a cruiser and the construction techniques may be different, don't know. I do know that on mine when the slides are in the floor of the slide is held up by the outer wall and the front and back wall of the slide. It is suspended above the main floor of the trailer.

hondavalk...if you have a free standing table and chairs ,you won't notice any difference ,but if you have the dinette with bench seats when you stand on the middle part of the leading edge it will push down thus pulling the seat back from the wall of the slide...the screws are not screwed into any meat thus pulls away ... If you want to see pics before I reinforced mine , I will repost them. The floor is only particle board (osb)so it only takes 30 seconds to slip the wood under.

It was a rainy few days at Algonquin Prov park...tarps kept us dry.

It only takes 30 seconds to run the slide out, too...

I would believe there is a big difference with the Schwintek. Apples and oranges.

Having seen uninstalled slides at the factory, I agree that I wouldn't trust the floor on a non-Schwintek slide.
