I have seen some coaches modified with long heavy duty slide rails in the storage area. Anyone know where I can get some or what they are called so I can search for them? Thanks!

Mine are Joey Bed. They come in various lengths, and you use your own plywood to control the width.

Kwikee Products is another brand. So is Slide Master.

Hopefully that will get your started. I know there are others, and you will probably get those names sooner or later on the forum.

I feel that these sliders are the best on the market. Fun place to visit and have them installed free. There is a great rv park nearby (Clearwater Crossing?).

My vote goes with Jerry.

We checked out SlimSlider at Quartzsite. SlimSlider uses the least amount of head room in the bay and are built very light. I didn't put them in yet because I can still squat down, and I am a consummate CB

I put in SlimSliders and think they are great! Lightweight, really strong, and they use very little vertical space. The only downside is when you have to crawl into the basement it is a little tougher. However, if there are two people you can pull a drawer out, climb in, and have person #2 push you in!

I got a Celestron telescope for Xmas and had to install Kwikee slides cause the scope weighs 55 lb (it's a big one). It goes in the back bay on the passenger side. So far, I am pleased.
