Slide out covers

Has anyone with a Greyhawk or RH added slide out covers? I don't unders why some brands include them and Jayco has decided not to make it either standard or an option. There must be some engineering philosophy here that I have yet to understand.

What say you all on the topic?

Well look at it like this. It is an easy $500+ revenue (per slide topper) for the dealer. Next time, have them installed before purchase, and financed in the deal

We added ours after purchase. It was an option, but none that we wanted had them, and I didn't feel like waiting 8 weeks this go around. Even though it was an option, we contacted the factory, spoke with a few people and verified it was blocked / backed to accept the brackets on the outer slide wall corners.

I'm sure it's ok, but I'd verify with the factory first that it is indeed blocked to accept the screws where they need to be.

We had them installed on our 29KS in 2014 when we bought new. The 2015 Greyhawks have them from factory. They do make a difference.

2015 do not have toppers

I just bought a 2015 Greyhawk 31DS and it does not have toppers on the slides. CW suggested I add them later.

Yes mine is a 15 too. No covers.

Are some better than others? How do you make a comparison? What criteria beyond product and price of installation?

We likewise just purchased a 2015 Greyhawk 31 FK and it did not come with slide out covers.

Bought our 2014 Greyhawk in August. After negotiating with the local Jayco dealer and getting his price as low as possible, we added, "Okay. We'll take it... If, you install a slide topper as part of the deal." As we suspected, they agreed readily.

Shame on Jayco. Never was offered to me. Although they might be in Cahoots with the dealers.

So, went to CW and they gave me a quote based on me bringing the Rig in so they can take a look as they're concerned about the clearance. They have 3 different price levels. Good - Better - Best All have to be ordered.
