Not sure what Texascamper was told but I was told by Jayco that the outside walls around the slide are not reinforced to accomodate a slide topper.

Cheers

I think all RV manufacturers make incredible claims about their units' insulation values. Think we all get an RV can't be as well insulated as a stick built home. Our fifth wheel was insulated with the Dow Blue Foam in the sidewalls and floor, and fiberglass batts in the attic. Still got hot/cold. And, the recent introduction of the bubble foil in the floors with claims of high R values is only for one type of heat transfer, radiant. I'll be curious to see how our White Hawk does with a single AC unit this summer; I suspect it might get a little toasty.

Like anything in RV construction, it's a function of weight & $$$.

Welcome to the Jayco Forum. Your dealer installed a slide topper on your whitehawk? That's cool. I called Jayco and they told me I couldn't get one installed. Is your trailer a 2013 model? Maybe they are reinforcing the wall now.

cheers

Maybe they just don't offer it as a factory installed option but it is can be installed? The only thing I'd be worried about is if Jayco meant there is no frame blocking in the wall for the slide topper. On the Jayflight/Eagle there is blocking in the top left/right of the slide room so people can add them aftermarket. In the Crossroads Zinger I almost ordered in place of my Eagle, the factory told me there was NO blocking and that adding a slide topper would be at my own risk.

I just bought a White Hawk 30DSRE, was told slide toppers were not an option and could not be installed. Bluesky do you have a White Hawk, and if so what model? You just mention that you had them installed but did not say on what model TT (or maybe I missed it somewhere :=) ).

Thanks
Gary

Sounds like there is no blocked framing in the area for the slide topper mounting arms. If the previous poster owns a White Hawk they may want to inspect the mounting arms and ensure the screws are holding and not backing away. The only material in the location may be the luan backing.
