For those with a 28BHBE...

How long is the slide ?

What length Slide Cover did you use?

I think I'm gonna go with a Dometic / A&E.

Nelson, what did you end up doing if you don't mind me asking? I called Jayco today as I was told they would install toppers at the factory. I was transferred to a nice man who pulled up my camper order. He advised that the Jay Flight line are not framed for a topper and that the factory would not do it. My dealer had said they would do it for around $600 (wasn't given a firm price). Haven't decided if I'll let the dealer do it, do it myself or just not get one...

Nelson4,
Or anyone else who installed a slide topper.
How has the topper held up? was it worth it?

Ouch. If Jayco says it's not framed I'd worry about the long term effects. A related story: the 5er we were negotiating did not have toppers. The dealer included them at no cost to sweeten the deal. It was a pretty good exchange I thought. On delivery I discovered they'd put the bottom of the Carefree line on and in white. The 5er is a "mocha" color. Oh well, if it doesn't kill you......
