You might be asking, “How much weight can an RV slideout hold?” and it could be the same reason that I wondered about this. I was worried that I was going to bend my RV slideout from putting too much weight on it.
I didn’t logically think that would be the case, but it was still in the back of my mind.
The good news is:
Question: How much weight can an RV slideout hold?
Answer: An RV slideout can hold anywhere from 600 to 1,500 pounds.
Also, keep in mind if you have a really big and stout RV, you might find that a slide can hold even more weight. I know some of the big class A RVs have super slides, and they can definitely hold a lot more weight than some of the smaller RVs or even fifth wheels.
Best Practices for RV Slideout Usage
So, you might have seen stabilizers that you can put under your RV slideout, but those usually aren’t necessary. However, they did make me feel a lot better, so if you’re like me—you might want to check them out.
If you're like me and you want to have a little extra stability and peace of mind, you'll like having these under your slide out.
- 2 supports
- Heavy duty
- Protects slide out mechanism
- Easy to install
- A little on the pricey side
I wouldn’t recommend jumping up and down on the slideout. Even though that might be okay, I don’t see any reason to cause extra stress on the RV slideout.
Always keep any debris off the top of the slide whenever you close it, and this will keep you from having trouble with your rig’s slideouts.
It’s as easy as this when you’re worried about your maximum weight on slideout and want to keep your slideout and RV safe.
