    RV Slide Out Topper

    Having forgotten to order the toppers for our new Momentum we ask the dealer to quote for a set but they said that non are made to fit the main living side out and the only one that is made will be 2 ins short each end!
    Has anyone had them fitted to a Momentum and had the same problem?

    Thanks

    Here is a link to the Dometic website. http://dometic.com/enus/Americas/USA...ctdataid=70437 On the right side, there is another link to the "Installation and Operation Guide". There is a measurement chart around page 2 or 3.

    The problem is that your slide is between the two awnings and their mounting arms. The slide topper brackets need to mount on the slide out, and sometimes there is not enough clearance for them because of the awning arms.

    As you have been told, the next size down will have too short of a fabric to cover the entire slide out roof. If your Service tech's are good, they can use the size bigger, and cut down the tube and fabric to make it a custom fit for that slide.

    It all comes from dealing with these things on a daily basis....
