Default Atarium slide

I have a Sun Voyager with the atarium Slide out. It has window covers on the inside to block the sun and also a sun blocking slide out awning. Yes I would say it is hotter than one without all of those windows but we enjoy being able to look out .

I too am intrigued by the design of the 8410 Atrium. I see they offered this model only 3 years 2003,2004 and 2005. Was this design not popular. I like the side entry. From reading some of the posts, it appears that there may be some slide sealing problems. I would not consider a front entry but like the Diesel Pusher design.

I have the 2004 with the sunroom, I have had no problems with this slide sealing but I have have problems with the bedroom slide out sealing.

Hi Darby,
In my TM, bedroom slide, I also had water trouble. I fixed this by changing the rubber seal overlap at the top of the slide out so the upper one overlapped the two side seals. I then glued the corners tightly together, and no more leak.
Worth a look.

Default Rear slide leak

Thank you Rick for the information. I do beleive I have got it stopped for now as it has not leaked for some time now. It was leaking under the trim at the top and then running down and inside. I was able to stop it by using some sealer at the top of the trim.

The Atrium was a big Gulfstream coach with lots of windows. It was a very nice coach and by talking to some owners I found one in northern Calif. that had a problem with leaks on the slides. Other then that it was a nice coach.
