Slide toppers

I was wanting to know if the slide toppers are worth the money. Has anyone had them installed after not having them. Did you notice a difference in having shade over the slide or are they just to keep the top of slide cleaner?

They do keep the slide cooler, but cleaner is the key. I've had them on the last 4 units.

Get the slide toppers.

You won't regret it.

I still havn't decided if they are worth it. My brother in law's flap so much in the wind that at times they have to run the slides in to sleep. I would like to have them when parked on our river lot because of sticks and leaves etc falling out of the trees.

I had a slide topper installed. I got tired of cleaning sticks and leaves off the top of the slide.

Get them! Help keep slide tops clean and cool and they have to save on water leaks. I will never own an RV without them.

What brand does he have?

We have A&E slide topper on our big slide and have never had a problem with wind. We camped this weekend with 30+ mph gusts and 25 mph steady winds and had no issues.

Thanks everyone, I think I will get them when I can find some on sale. Maybe in the winter when they are begging for sales. :hihi:

We have slide toppers from Carefree of Colorado. No complaints. Definitely worth the money. We haven't had any problems with wind and they drain well in the rain. Good investment.
