Designed specifically for monocoque Bus chassis
We have been installing RV slide out units since the 1970's and one of the most design headaches we had were to make sure we installed enough engineering back into the floor area.
The wall was weakened when we cut the side opening and floor out for the arms.
However we noticed how a Porch glider was moving and that inspired our designers and as they say the rest is history .
Works off the same theory as glider furniture,
but much heavier
