Slide topper or No slide topper?

We have a 29rlds with two slides. Do any owners out there add slide toppers
to their unit? If so what brand is the most reasonable and how much$$ to install.
Thx

Most any decent rv dealer will give you a quote.

Without slide toppers you must get on the roof each time before bringing in the slide or risk leaves, pine needles, bugs and/or water coming off inside your rig during transit.

FYI, this is the reply I received from a Jayco Customer Service rep when asked if I could install a slide topper on my 2016 White Hawk 24RKS:

"Due to this not being an option on your unit, your unit will not be backed with the proper material for this installation. This modification, to this unit, has also not been factory tested by Jayco and cannot be recommended or suggested. I apologize I could not have offered more assistance in this matter."

That's their way of saying there may not be enough solid material in the walls to mount them to.

Lightweight trim with weatherstripping extends along the top and around the entire slide out. This appears to be the issue, the wall and header within seem solid enough. Anyway, just reporting what Jayco said about my White Hawk. I'll follow that advice.

FWIW, Jayco is installing toppers on the 355MBQS I just ordered while it is being manufactured so I guess it would depend on the model.

I believe it does depend on the model line. I spoke to Jayco directly and was told they wont install toppers on the Jay Flight line. I asked if it had to do with support for a topper not being present and was told yes. He didn't get specific and I didn't ask for a lot of details because I only needed a yes or no if they would do it. My dealer however said they would do it once the trailer was in their hands. I haven't decided what I'll do yet.
