Dometic Slideout Topper Bracket

I am looking to purchase a Dometic Elite Slideout Topper for our 29REKS but the problem is one of the windows on the slideout is about 5-6 inches away from the upper left hand corner of the slideout. I have an area on the rounded corner of the window approx 5 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches to work with. My question is could someone with a Dometic topper be kind enough to measure their mounting bracket for me and let me know what the measurement of the plate is that screws in to the slide? I would greatly appreciate it

I have the Grayhawk 29mv and as you do, had some concern about the tight fit of installing toppers. Short and to the point....Glad I took it in to CW. My measurements were off a bit and plus their experience installing toppers..... Just saying !
BTW, having them installed on Friday.

Probably would be best to have CW install mine also

Hey Quick, I forgot to mention that they have to remove the rain gutter in order to install the toppers. No big deal. I looked at other makes that were having them put on while I was at CW and they do the same.

Well, got the toppers installed on Friday 2/13/2015, Looks like they did not have to remove the gutter after all.. And I just realized that they charged me for removal. So, I get a bit of a refund!

Well, guess we won't be getting a topper on our 29reks because the Whitehawk slideout isn't designed to support one. Oh well, I'll get me a generator instead

I take it that the Greyhawks are designed to support a topper ?

As you review my posting just above Quick Step's ? I just had toppers put on my Grayhawk 29MV. (See pictures) by Camping World (CW).

I had stated in my previous post that they didn't have to remove the gutters. That was incorrect. What I was looking at was the (what look like gutters) the support bar that goes all the way around the top which holds the rubber seal on the roof. (newbe).

I highly recommend that you have them installed by the dealer or CW as the measurements for the Grayhawk is tricky. Have yet to be in an area where you have heavy tree fallout or rain. But I have peace of mind and the DW off my back (she wanted them on). .

Take care
