We are looking at a 2011 Outback 210RS. We are wondering if anybody had any comments on the rear slide out beds. Do they stay warm or do they get cold and damp like the Hybird campers? We have Starcraft 19CK camper. We love the camper, but we would like to get away from the tent bed. When it is rainy, they are cold and damp.

I have the Jayco 213 with the rear slide. It is well sealed so it doe not get damp. I can be colder since it is exposed on five sides.

We had a rear slide and loved it. No dampness. Cold is realative. Normal three season in TN not a problem. Ohio in Nov and upper teens with wind the spot I was laying in was just fine, but move and it was cold. Its nothing that a heated mattress or some foam under new the mattress couldn't help.

We have an Outback with a rear slide out, queen sized bed. We full time in this unit and it is my sister in laws "bedroom."

In weather under 30 degrees the area is slightly cooler, but an electric blanket solves that problem.

The slide area does not get "damp" and is very cozy.

Our rear queen slide stays nice and warm. We also had a hybrid prior to our current trailer. Much quieter, warmer, and drier than the tent end sleeping area. The Outback is a very nice, quality trailer.

Travelstar, I am upgrading from our hybrid for the same reason, and wondered about that as well on rear slide units. Everything I read seems to indicate it is warm and not damp like our hybrids.

I am waiting on a Kodiak 240KSSL to come in from the dealer so I can close the deal. Enjoy your Outback if you get it, we looked at them as well, very nice units, but the ones we looked at had white cupboards which we didn't like.

best of luck.

we had the hybrid & traded it in on the sprinter with a rear king slide bed. We manage to keep the whole trailer warm with a radiant heater. it is a world of difference comming from the hybrid to the full TT.

You'll like the rear slide out in the bedroom. We live in our trailer except for an occasional weekend when we go home to Georgia and we've spent the past two winters in temperatures that have gotten down into the single digits and it's as warm as the rest of the trailer. We don't use electric blankets or anything like that and we stay very comfortable. We don't turn the heat down at night we keep it at the same temperature day and night. We also run a dehumidifier in our trailer year around so we've never had any condensation.

We have one and while I like the fact that it gives more room the ONLY drawback I have at least in my model trailer is that you have to climb up to get to it. Plus anyone over 6'2" would have a tough time in the length of the bed. Make sure you lay in one before you buy to see that you fit.

Weather issues have never been a problem for us. It stays nice and warm. We bought this trailer after our pop up and kind of know of what we speak. Not anywhere near the same. In both our pop up and our current trailer we have a 3' memory foam mattress on top of the trailer mattress. My wife says the trailer bed is more comfortable than the home bed!!

We have a 2007 Jayco 213 Exp. I agree with the previous post - I am 6'2" and could not fit in all of the 2007 rear slide models at the time.

The only condensation problems we have had is with the top front bunk. We have changed out the light for a light / fan combo and solved the issue.

We have also added a 3" memory foam to the queen bed. It's worth the money.

Good luck in your search.


You can't have everything. Where would you put it?
