Travers St. Louis RV / Camper – What is an RV / Camper Slide Out?

The RV / Camper Slide out is one of the more advanced innovative features on your motorhome. RV / Camper Slide outs extend creating more living space inside the living quarters when the motorhome is parked. When you are all done with recreation, the RV / Camper slide out retracts back to its original position restoring the dimensions and aerodynamics you need for travel. From the RV / Camper owner’s perspective, Slide out Maintenance & Repair is usually something left to a certified RV / Camper master technician for good reasons.
