we're considering a 2007 kz 260, the model with the LOOOOOONG slide! there seem to be issues with the slide, when its open, it doesnt look square to the rest of interior,partcularly out of parallel to the tt ceiling, about a 1/2 inch out in 12 ft it was towed a significant distance without locking bars in place at highway speeds. everything looks ok, no bent or broken structure that i can see. anything i should look for? is a 1/2 inch in 12 ft an issue? is it adjustable? otherwise the tt is in great condition. i plan on moving the bathroom door about 14-16 inches, some bonehead designer decided that it wasnt necessary to open and close the b'room door with the slide closed!!
we bought the tt and i investigated the slide out issue. its the floor of the slide out thats the issue. no big deal!
the slideout is really long, 12 plus feet with two rack/pinion drives at 1/3 and 2/3 positions leaving 4 ft of unsupported slideout floor at both ends. one end has the flip out couch, its fine, the rear end has the dinette and that end has sagged about an inch
this must be common problem?
i plan to add wheels under the two ends that will bear the weight of the dinette and couch, there is already a roller under the middle, factory installed or not i dont know. i'll be using 2 large fixed(vs swivel) casters, three inches dia at least between the tt floor and the slideout floor. they can be bolted either to the tt floor or to the slideout floor, not sure yet which way i'll go with it. "upside down" castors would eliminate dirt and debris issues with the wheels and marking the flooring.
I sounds like you have the skills to do it right. Before starting the project, I would thoroughly inspect for water damage and if the floor is compromised now is the time to replace it with something better.
structurally it all looks fine, no signs of water damage, floor is really solid. the floor looks to be one inch thick plywood. added temporary blocks under the two ends to bring it back to flat gradually. the back end was sagged an inch, i've brought it up 3/4 so far, another 1/8 today.
when its back up totally, i'll add a nice big hardwood block under it and a heavy duty wheel(caster)
its been a while, two long trips since my last post on this issue long story shortened, the back third of the slideout floor was rotted away, one inch thick partical board!!, roof leak in the slideout roof
fixed the leak, replaced the floor with 3/4 plywoos. yeah, big job but the trailer was described as a handyman special!!
