They aren't very well suited to carrying much weight, but there are three points of support. 1) When the slideout is extended, the inner edge of the slideout floor is resting firmly on the main floor. 2) The dual rack and pinion slide mechanisms support the outer edge of the slideout. 3) The top of the slideout lip is tight against the main wall, so that is the final support. Basically, extending the slideout tight at the bottom also forces the top against the main wall.

I do not particularly like Lippert ....had an axle issue in the past and found out that some parts are made in China...not exactly what you call quality.
