    Slide Toppers

    Good Afternoon,
    Looking for Slide Toppers for our 2019 376th.
    Anyone know if I can put a slide topper on the dinette slide, the slide to the left of the entrance door. Will that interfere with the awning?
    Also any recommendations, as to make or model or best company to do business with.
    Thanks
    Mark

    Are you going to have it done, or do it yourself. I bought the Solara slide toppers from Amazon and am very satisfied with them. But some places will want you to buy through them. but an independent RV shop may have no issues with putting one that you bought, in place. Generally it's cheaper to buy them yourself, but you'd really need to compare prices.

    So you like Solara. Any issues with your awning operation ?

    Below is a picture of a similar setup like your RV with awning and a slide-topper on the slide you mentioned in your post.

    I too have Solara slide toppers on our 5er and they have worked great for us over the last 4 yrs.

    None at all. We installed them ourselves. It's basically a one person operation except for the large living room slides.

    I'm one of those guys that have no idea why people spend $$ on slide toppers. Slow down the water before they hit the slide roof...which is waterproof anyway? In over a quarter century of RV'ing...never did I think I needed a roof over a roof.

    I'd buy them again just to mitigate the loudness of the rain on the slide roof. Also, I find it helps keep the slide cooler when in direct sunlight.

    I really don't care about the rain, although snow and ice is a different story: better on the slide topper than coming in on top of the slide roof. Which has happened before we got toppers. Staying under pine trees and oak trees is the main reason we have them. I'm too old to be climbing up on the roof brushing the acorns and pine cones off the slide. And yes, they do mitigate the heat on a sunny, hot day. For me they mean less things to do before packing up.

    Thanks for the link. I have 2 awnings one over the dinette slider and onehttps://www.mygrandrv.com/forum/asset.php?fid=35841&uid=29863&d=1658252653 over the outdoor kitchen / entertainment area. The arms almost touch each other. I don't know if you can see it with this picture

    And I am one of those guys that is getting to old to be going up and a ladder to clean off any debris that could damage the seals on my slides.
