1997 fleet wood wilderness park model
« on: June 03, 2017, 08:12:15 AM »
My wife and I are thinking about purchasing a 37' fleet wood park model. It has 2 slides and is in good shape. The guy who is selling it doesn't know how to get the slides back in to move it. Anyone know how to put slides in?
Thanks for your help

Welcome!!!

I think that would be a Fleetwood Wilderness

Unlike a regular camping trailer, Park Model trailers often do not have the ability to do that easily as they are not likely mechanized. Some use tip-outs and the "slide seals" are riveted/screwed in place. To start, they have to be removed and the slide is then tipped up and in. Flat roof or sloping roof on the slide?? Sloping roofs are often a hint that tip-outs were used.

Note also that park models often do not have holding tanks equipped etc, they rely on a direct connection to a sewer and have household type toilets, stoves, fridges etc.

The people like mobile home movers who are often hired to move them often have the experience to handle that.
