Slideout replacement

Does anybody have an idea what the cost is to have a new slideout installed? I have a '99 Alpha Gold 34 and its the 6' bedroom slideout. Floor was rotten and was replaced but there is not enough good wood to attach it to. I think the whole thing will need to be rebuilt.

Some years ago I read that you could have one installed for $10,000.

I think I'd try to have a metal pan fabricated with turned up ends that can be attached to the slide out walls where there's good wood, then use plywood inside the pan floor.

Hello,
I rebuilt my slide outs and I am no where near a carpenter.
I actually removed mine and took the skin off and copied the framework and the construction . Remember, these companies kinda know their stuff and things you may think are improvements aren't really. Follow the original design. Mine is a Teton.
The cost to me and I own a forklift was about 150.00 with treated material and Thompson water seal after. The roof material was 200.00 and I ended up tearing it off and spraying bed liner on the roof color matching the rv. A good carpenter couldn't be that expensive. Just make sure you know how they plan to remove the slide and put it back. A forklift rental is about 150.00 a day. 500.00 a week.

P.S.
It took me about 3 days after work everyday. Use the proper glue by the way. No solvents on the skin to remove old glue. All of the materials except glue are available at the box stores.

I already built the floor to the original thickness of 1 1/8 with plywood and painted it to seal the underside. I tried using adhesives to attach it to the walls but the weather wouldn't cooperate. Too cold and wet. Also the only thing to attach to is styrofoam.

replacing the floor was probably harder than just stripping it and making it new.
And the estimate on my Teton was 6900.00 for the bedroom at a rv dealer.
Using my old siding if they could..
