    image.jpg I’ve got a 2019 Viking VTrek V3. This model has the bunk ends suspended from the roof via cables rather than supported from below with poles from the frame. One thing that happens to us on campouts is that the slides seem to wiggle past the latch that keeps them fully extended. It usually only happens on one of the slides and not both on each bed. Sometimes it happens if someone is on the bunk end tossing and turning. Other times it seems to happen at random. One thing that I find odd is that the latch is so small. I guess they did that so that it is easy to lift out to push the bunk ends in but it’s small enough that it’s inevitable that it will get loose at some point. Anyone seen this and have any suggestions?

    Wow, I don't like that design at all.
