For a future project, I've started a word doc w/pasted posts from your bus conversions. It's a fascinating idea and you've done exceptionally good work on yours. Has anyone added sliders? Our rv has 2 full length slides that are auto spoilers. We'd have a hard time living in a rig that doesn't fully open. I read on another forum that there is at least 1 company that has been at this for some time and does it right. As I recall the ballpark price is $12k per. Not prohibitally high but on further thought, I can imagine building the slide platforms w/finished ext. walls and having a hydrolics pro install the HWH combo leveler/slider units. Again the HWH is not outrageous dollars. Thoughts?

There is/was a company in CA that installed slides in bus conversions - don't know if they still do. You will find a wealth of information at the Bus Conversions. Com web site.....

There is also a company that puts slides in buses in Illinois, just off Interstate 57 (you can see them from the highway on the east side). They are somewhere down around Champaign as I recall.
