Slider R-Value

Does anyone know which manufacturer(s) insulate the sidewalls of their side-outs and to what R-Value? Thanks.

I've had Keystone's and some others apart. I don't remember one that wasn't insulated.
However, most of the floors are just plywood around 3/4" thick, and no box framing at all. A Mobile Suites I had apart was box framed with insulation in the floor.

Thanks for the reply. I'm really new to this, but I've noticed some manufacturers pointing out their insulated slider floors as well as their other R-Values as a sign of quality construction. I haven't seen any R-Values for the stub walls on the slider, which I think would be a big selling point. On another forum I had a Mobile Suites owner tell me that he needs to have his slippers on when sitting in the recliner is the slideout when the temps are down. Has it been your experience that the stub walls were as well insulated as the stub walls?
Thanks

Idk what technically "stub" walls mean.
But on the Keystone I worked on, the slide walls weren't as well insulated. It was just a mid level fifth wheel. Like a Laredo.

All of Drv's products (Elite, Mobile Suites) have 3 1/4" walls, even in the slides. We had a 2000 Avion and it was pretty drafty. We bought a 2007 Select Suite (Drv) and loved it, last year we bought a Mobile Suite. You can get the R value of the insulation off their website www.drvsuites.com.
