Cost of adding a slideout

Does anyone know how much it costs to add a slideout on a motorhome? I live in SoCal and have been thinking about adding one. Any feedback would be great. Thanks!

The cost of a adding a slideout will probably be the cost of that new RV you are gonna have to buy.

How much do you think it would be, do you know what is involved in adding a slide?

While it may sound like a good idea, there may be structural issues one does not want to get involved with. My concern is the structure that is left after the cutout is made. Is the integrity of the coach threatened? There is also the additional weight to be considered. The slide will add weight to one side of the coach. Consider moving very slowly on this project.

I bought a motorcycle a few years ago who specialized in adding slides. His focus was on Bluebird and other high end coaches. He was able to purchase kits but the overall cost including the interior remodel resulted in a lot of money.

Do a search on here about adding a slide, there was a fellow on here that did it himself! He posted a lot of photo's if I remember right and did a wonderful job, everyone that looked at his thread was amazed to say the least. To hire someone to do it.......Trade up!
Maybe someone will remember this thread so you can read it, I can't find it.......
