We have remodeled everything from the typical carpets/drapes/upholstery in a micro-mini motorhome to a Suede Leather furniture/European formica cabinetry sleeper / lounge in a Freightliner car transport belonging to a race car team. Also, just about everything in between.

The remodeling concept is simple; remove what you don't want and replace it with what you do want. The challenge comes when those wants aren't ordinary or are extreme.

We have converted Crown school buses into mobile Computer Classrooms with a 250 amp 30KW generator power supply for local districts. Converted 4106 GMC buses to mobile Dental labs and converted refrigeration semi trailers to mobile telephone mass dialing command centers. It had a 6' x 20' slideout stage with steps and railings for Local 99, a large Union used for Union Rallys.

We have completed 6 motorhome and truck bathroom/5th wheel trailer conversions for a Co. that leases "on location" production offices/makeup/wardrobe facilities for the T.V. Commercial making industry.

Our "above the floor" concept will mean that there will be no major frame modifications; just reinforcing the sidewall metal (steel or aluminum) framing and sandwiching the floor for the mechanisms. These mechanisms are then securely attached to the floor/wall structure.The stroke of such mechanisms can vary from 16" to 30" depending on the application (couch, or couch & dinette, or kitchen & couch). The hydraulic pump still has to be in the compartments, and is controlled by a switch on the dash.
 
We also can incorporate moving the kitchen (sink, stove, M/W and cabinets) in a 20" slideout. With all these 'above the floor' additions, we can still maintain a 'flat floor look' by putting the couch or cabinets in front of the floor thickness.
 
While we have to modify the couch and cabinets in the slideout area, we try to give the most from what we have to work with. The furniture and cabinets/ doors are remade to match and fit the rest of the coach. We normally install a Hardwood trim around the interior lip of the room, which co-ordinates with the decor of the coach. We can reupholster any furniture that needs upgrading, and make any window covering/carpeting or floor covering changes to make the coach look like new.

Our exclusive cantilever design guarantees a leak-proof, wind-noise proof seal. The seals are made of neopreme rubber; contouring all sides of the room, wiping the walls, roof and floor when the room travels in and out.

We can make all sorts of floorplan changes/cabinet modifications, up to and including completely rebuilding the entire coach from the chassis up. We also do bedroom slideouts and bathroom modifications.

With all custom modifications, there is a substantial cost to the work. Most 6 ft. Motorhome slideout conversions will start at about $18,500, and a 12 ft. or larger slideout will start at about $22,500. Since there are limited choices for a bus slideout conversion (Eagle #1, Prevost #2), the cost of those slideout conversions starts at about $50-55,000.

For the majority of customers this can mean a SAVINGS of $50- 100,000 difference over trading up to a coach that has a factory slideout. In most instances, the sales tax and interest cost of such a trade-up will about pay for the cost of this conversion.

With over 39 years of personal experience, and a crew of highly trained and experienced employees, we can complete any conversion to your complete satisfaction. I hope this will give you more to go on, and I am always available by phone 559.875.8820 or my internet email address (vipcoach@verizon.net). Remember to bookmark this site for up-to- date information & changes in technology regarding slideout conversions. You can also visit www.hwh.com for their info.

Every coach will change from model year, so it is hard to give a firm estimate without actually inspecting your coach, although we aren't afraid to tackle almost anything as long as it is feasible to do.
