Look any mass producer of anything will have a few flawed products. The poor dude that buys the flawed product is the one that gets on the internet and, rightfully, complains about his product. Is there a Perfect product, No. Sooner or later all our rigs have problems. Some sooner than later. My rig is 8 yrs old and thank God it never had a slide issue. But I can't say:"Oh winnies don't have slide issues." Just like the guy that has a slide issue can't say:" man, winnies have slide issues." You're looking at a hell of a rig, Those Journeys are Niiice. But you need to Inspect it, if you have a savvy friend with a nice inspection check list, bring him along. Run those slides in and out 2x in 5 min intervals have him look at them as they go in and out. IF the rig has too many faults let it go. But if it has 1 or 2 problems, Negotiate the price down, or have him take it to the shop and have it fixed. I mean If I like a rig enough and it's 120K, I'll ask him to sell it to me for 110k and use 5k to have the slides fixed. But then again I don't know how you're paying for this. I pay cash for my things so that may work for me, but not for you. Anyway there are many more Journeys out there, take your time when making 100K+ investments.
