    Anybody install a slide topper on a Transcend?

    Is it something a competent DIYer can do? Any tips or tricks for finding good mounting points on a stick & tin trailer? I'd like a cover for the slide on this new trailer because I think when it's parked at home I'd like to leave the slide out most of the time. And we get a lot of rain.

    I am getting one installed...

    It seems to me that the 'roll-up' part moves with the slide and the 'hook' parts stay on the roof...

    As far as the hard points are concerned, I'm not sure where they are under the skin...

    Yeah, that's the typical configuration, I believe. My guess is that the sure bet would be to attach within 1.5 inches from the top edge of the wall, there is probably wood right there. Maybe that's too high, though, depending on where the top edge of the slide is when closed. I assume, perhaps incorrectly, that there is a method for determining where the studs are.
