In the last 10 years, in the RV industry there is a trend towards
having more and more space in
your coach when parked.
Instead of making the coaches longer, they are adapting
them to be wider. This trend has trickled over to the bus conversion
industry. Whenever considering adding slide-outs to your chassis, especially
with an MCI monocoque chassis, you want to be sure you have an expert to install
this for you. The average expense is approximately $1000-$1500. per foot.
Depending on who's designing it, you can have as many as four units
installed, almost doubling the size of your coach when parked.
Ask about our Rack and
pinion System using
new two heavy steel rails. We use a unique
system designed 18 years ago just for the MCI chassis. If one rail moves
1/4" the other rail has to move 1/4"' .. These two rails are
synchronized with a axle that can not let one side go out without
the other .. It can not tweak .. designed 18 years ago just for the MCI chassis.
Because the MCI is a monocoque construction, you need to be very careful how
you install a large room addition slide out. The mere fact that you are
installing a very large opening in the side of the coach can very well destroy
it. The slide out must be engineered in such a way that you add strength to your
coach, not remove it.
We have been installing commercial grade slide outs for the trade show and
exhibition industry since the 1970s. We started with other coaches and blended
over to MCI's because of the popularity of this coach. Our design has not yet
been duplicated by many in the industry.
Usually when you have a slide out, that slides in and out of the side of the
coach, you need a glide system similar to that of drawer glides or a large
filing cabinet glide. This glide system needs to be mounted in the floor.
In order to mount this type of system, the structural engineering for that coach
has to be disrupted.
Our approach is not to disrupt the floor area. We simply re-strengthen the
opening in some of the floor area, but we transfer our load in our glide system in the very strong
floor & ceiling. This method can also be
hidden very easily. This design, in combination with a rack and pinion system we
designed in the 1970s and have perfected since, has proven itself to be one of
the best designs, if not the best.
These are images of one of the new
2007 prototype slide outs. This is a late
model MCI 102-A3 to which we are adding a 13 foot x 30 inch slide out. Watch for
more images as work progresses.
