Man steals motorhome, leads police on chase with slideouts extended   

After stealing a motorhome from Richardson’s RV Center in Menifee, California, a man led police on a chase between Riverside and San Diego counties Wednesday with the slideouts fully extended, according to California Highway Patrol and as reported by NBC San Diego.   

Employees at the dealership say they were installing a new floor in the brand-new, full-sized Jayco motorhome when the suspect jumped in and drove away.

Officers say the driver traveled from Interstate 215 near Menifee at 1 p.m. into San Diego County via southbound I-15, and when the driver reached Gopher Canyon, he exited the interstate, but then drove back on heading south. CHP Officer Mary Bailey said speeds in the pursuit ranged from 25 to 60 mph.

The RV eventually stopped at Auto Parkway where the driver was taken into custody.  The RV was driven back up to Menifee following the incident. No injuries were reported.

First thing I thought of when reading the headline of slides out – the movie RV!

Sounds like no one along the route was injured by the slides being out.

Why would Richardson’s be installing a NEW floor in a NEW motorhome? Sure makes me wonder….
