My dealer said no toppers (2017 29ME)

Dropped our Greyhawk 29ME last week for some minor fixes and asked them to estimate adding slide toppers. We had a quote from a different place that works on all kinds of RVs as well as stores them, rents and sells consignment models.

They came back with a little over $2200 for all three. The dealer emailed to advise, and I quote ~

"Unfortunately your unit does not have enough clearance
to support slideout toppers."

Interesting that the other place advised I would need the shorter covers (flush mounted?) in order to clear the awning but the dealer doesn't think I can install them at all? Surprising since only one slide, the passenger side, has a clearance problem. Attached pic shows about a 2-3 inch width between.

Two questions:
1. Would it be better to at least install the other two over the driver side and the rear slide?
2. Has no one ever had slide toppers installed on all 3 for a 29ME model?

Curious. Maybe we will go the selfie stick method and 90 degree broom instead...

That's your dealers way of saying they don't want to do it.

Anything is possible if you throw enough money at it.

We took our Greyhawk to get toppers today. They put the driver side topper on with no problem but we had the same awning touching problem but they are ordering a shorter one that will be there tomorrow so we go back tomorrow. Hopefully all is well tomorrow

I have a 29 ME, with some research last summer I determined that the best slideout cover to fit the limited clearance is the sideout Kover lll made by carefree. The brackets are positioned more inward, thus allowing an option to mount on the awning side. Of course they are a lot more expensive than the others.

The topper originally ordered when moved over to make room for the awning then stuck out 10 inches to the left so they are just ordering a shorter width. Hope that works. We'll know when we pick it up today

Love to hear how that turned out and what model you have? Maybe we will have to drive south (from Dallas) to get this done!

Just picked up my 2016 29ME and after a battle with the wizards at Camping World told them to use Carefree of Colorado for the 2 side toppers. The rear can be a standard topper. I am really happy with how they turned out. Bear in mind there is not much room beside the awning - so make sure the installer watches this.

Did you use the Carefree "SideOut Kover III"?
