If you have ever seen a motorhome on the road, you have likely seen one that is pulling a vehicle along behind it. It’s even possible that you joked with the kids or grandkids, “Look at that small car pushing that big motorhome!” Those vehicles in tow are becoming more and more common as the population of retirees continues to rise and with it, the demand for motorhomes and RV toads.

It’s a beautiful morning. You are the first one up and you are looking forward to enjoying the sunrise. It is still a bit chilly, so rather than go outside just yet, you sit down at the table.

And there you have it, a perfect morning ruined by spilled coffee slopping out of your cup.

More and more RVs come equipped with slide outs. A slide out, sometimes referred to as a slide room, significantly increases the amount of living space in an RV. Many RVs now come with multiple slide outs which can turn an RV into something akin to a mansion on wheels.  Not satisfied with ”just” an RV anymore, the demand for increased real estate from RV shoppers has driven the slide-out explosion in the RV industry.
