Low dough slide topper

Check out the sweet slide topper I made for the 23B! Tarp was $6 Velcro was $10. I used the 2" x 60" self adhesive type from Wal-Mart then sliced it lengthwise to make two 1" strips. The 1" strips were schmucked into the rain gutter above the slide out, it is 82" long so there is a joint in the middle. I placed 4 patches of velcro to the upper edge and corners of the slide out. the 'loop' part of the velcro is 3/4" wide and is the sew-on style from JoAnn Fabrics $0.97/yd. I cut the tarp to the desired width then turned it back 1.5" and hemmed it. The loop velcro is sewed along the hem and I put some sections of velcro on each corner and two sections along the long edge. The corners are folded like gift wrap and sewn in place.

Good job bud! That's what I did for all 4 of my slides!
