Maybe I'll run w/o them for the first couple trips. They are a decent amount of money, and for only 25 nights or so a year - let me see if I can make do. At least if I want them I can go to my dealer for them now. The old rig is/was Camping World's.

AFAIK, slide toppers primary purpose is to keep debris off the top of the slide to eliminate the requirement to check, and maybe sweep, the top of the slide before retracting. Correct?

We don't have a topper (1 slide) so I'm uncertain if I'll find checking and sweeping the slide top before departing a problem or not. Time will tell.

We had them in installed on our Redhawk before delivery, after seeing them on my Son's 2014 Sunseeker. An extra cost [$500?+ for 2] option, but well worth it, since I couldn't see climbing up there to make sure the slide tops were clear before closing. Well worth the cost, considering the $80K?] investment in one these things!

I have them and wouldn't be without. Makes life much easier and quicker when packing up. Every trailer I've had, they've been installed before pickup.

I don't have them and wish I did, not only because they keep debris and snow off (had to get up there and sweep off about 4 inches last winter), but when it is hot and sunny the sun will not be directly on the slide roof, making the whole camper cooler.
