Yea my unit sits at a storage facility when not in use so I canít work on it there otherwise I would put it in my self. Either way itís money well spent walking on the roof in the rain is not a good idea should have had them installed when I purchased the unit but you live and learn.

Mine sits at a storage site also, and that's the only place I do work on it. Can't take it into my condo area. I just take a generator if needed to work. And my tools of course

Installed super happy, did not take long to install dealer had them both up & tested in less than 2hrs. They installed a new track on the larger slide to get the correct pitch, small bedroom slide they used the one installed by Prime Time worked just fine.

I think you will like them a lot. It will keep you coach cleaner, dryer, and cooler in summer.

Thanks.. Yea I will make life simpler indeed no need to climb onto the roof to dry the slides off/check for any fallen debris. Will use my rig in a few weeks itís just one less thing I need to worry about when packing up.

Esmoglo those really look nice. Now I'm going to have to get some on the crusader too. Did you have your dealer install?

I'm 68 and walk roofs and climb ladders as little as possible. Old bones take too long to heal.

That's indeed a good idea. Saw someone last year fall off a 5th wheel and it was not good at all. Work smarter not harder I say

Yea local dealer ordered them based on my measurements and installed them it was about 1K for both installed. Parts were about $700 for what I wanted installation was $300 so it wasn't that bad I can't complain.

Having the higher rail will be a definite help. I wish mine was installed with one. It will stop pooling on the topper.
