Slider awnings

Just bought 2018 Greyhawk but there are no slider awnings. We are looking to get them installed. Has anyone done this?

Wow, I see there is a bracket above each slider. Did you have to screw into it or does something slide on to it and then how does it attach to slider. How did you learn how to put it on?

Going to have the dealer install all 5 on mine in the spring. One of my previous trailers had them on it and they are nice. My previous trailer didn't have them and I hated it. I was going to have them installed, but I didn't keep it long enough. I lived all last year without them on my current one and not doing that anymore.

If you are mechanically inclined or have a friend or two that are, they are an easy DIY install. I put one on my 29RKS last season in an hour. Do a search. There are a number of posts on this forum on how to do it.

slider awning

Had two put on my 2017 26xd by a local shop that works on rvs. Had them on my prev cl c that I had for 11yrs. After 2 trips with this new one I saw how much trash got on top of slides it was a no brainer to have them put on. I am much too old to be going on the roof to clean the slides off. Amazing how many rv*s do not have them

For us, this is a "Must Have". Had one trailer without them and the temperature difference is considerable. Do it yourself or have a dealer install. Always worth it.

We ordered the installation of two slide toppers from the dealer prior to our receiving our 2018 Greyhawk 29MV in November. They were expensive but we wouldn't have it any other way. Now I don't have to carry an electric leaf blower and clean the tops of the slides every time they are retracted. And I didn't feel comfortable standing on a ladder juggling the toppers or drilling holes into the side of the MH in freezing cold weather or wind. To me, there are somethings better left to the professionals.
