RV Parts & Components Require No Grease & Can Withstand Any Environment

Design reliable class a vehicles with engineered composite plastics

Consumers should spend more time driving their recreational vehicles and less time repairing them, so give them peace of mind by designing tribologically-optimized, maintenance-free RV parts into your next project.
Our tribologically-optimized polymer iglide® bearings and drylin® linear guide rails are self-lubricating, dry-running, and resistant to weather and corrosion. They’re also lightweight, UV-resistant and perfect for use in awnings, vents, adjustable seats, ramps, hinges, pedals, sliding doors and more. Our plastic e-chain® cable carriers are also a great alternative to metal springs and plastic sheets, which can potentially stretch out or sag respectively, or rust and wear in varying weather conditions.

All igus® products and RV parts are extensively tested each year inside of our 41,000 sq. ft. test lab at our headquarters in Cologne, Germany.  For this reason, every bearing, linear slide and cable carrier offers a predictable service life, which engineers can calculate prior to installation using our online service life calculators. Browse through some of our RV parts below or reach out to us directly with any questions.

Blog:  What Are the Different Types of RV Slide Out Mechanisms?

It’s obvious why RV slides ‒ also known as slide outs, pop outs or bump outs ‒ would be beneficial additions to any recreational vehicle. Who wouldn’t want more space in their home on wheels, right? But, understanding the differences between the types of slide out mechanisms is just as important so you can design the right RV that meets the needs and wants of your customers.
