    Does it have a proximity sensor for when you deploy?

    I can imagine parking up and forgetting in the rush to pour a drink and get to bed! :)

    A neat feature though.

    How long before someone puts their BBQ under it when it rains?

    Good gimmick, but practical?? What about a bike rack? Towing a motorbike?

    Seems like over engineering to me the lounge area does not seem to get any benifit from the slide out looks all a bit tight.

    There was a large garage under the rigid part of the slide out.

    Would be more worried about water sat on top of slide out then retracting the slide out, potential water ingress issues

    Slide-outs; a great idea when they are on the side :)

    I can see this being a maintenance issue for anyone tempted to buy it.

    It is innovative, but adds a mechanical failure point, must increase damp vulnerability, doesn't seem to have benefited internal space and just looks a bit odd

    I'm wondering how long it will take for some moron to put his BBQ under the slide out (back) to shelter from the rain, and torch the whole affair.

    Or for a frisky overweight couple to snap it off under their combined weight in a night of frenzied humping, and end up in a detached kennel overnight?

    That's what it is. If the rear storage is described as a garage, then this must be a kennel

    Bloody presenter was awful
