I installed mine. Bought it from Carefree of Colorado. A pretty simple two person install (mainly due to the length)!

If you are even slightly mechanically inclined, you can do it yourself much cheaper than the dealer. I found brackets on Ebay for the Dometic series for $39 and ordered the topper from AmericanRV. It should save you a couple hundred bucks or more.

Yep, added a slide topper after our first year of ownership.
So glad we did and will never have another RV without one.

Is this a "Trick Question"? I see most have answered about a "Slide Topper" but you are asking about a "Awning to the Slide",and Yes I have seen Awning on a Slide! They make more room under a Awning than a Awning OVER the Top of a Slide! Open Road units have those Useless Awning over there Slides! Youroo!!

What do you do if there is high winds? Will the awning hold up or do you have to put the slide in? Thought about getting one until I thought about wind problems.
