impssible to keep underside clean if you have a large slide. they also become a large mud puddle with very little rain i had them on my last rv this one no no

we made the mistake of not having a slide topper installed from the beginning.
we thought we see if it was a necessary thing. wish we hadn't done it that way.
ended up costing us way more than if we had included one in the purchase price.
it took us two years of use and frustration from sap, dirt and debris to get us to change our mind. our slide actually stuck to the side of the trailer and i had to use a butter knife to break the adhesion.
since we added the slide topper, no more issues and no more mess to clean.

lasr year we were camping and we were near the seaway. A terrible rain storm with wind developped and my slide was opened. We did not get a bit of rain inside the slide and the topper did not flap at all. My topper awning is quite tight on the spring and even in windy days it stay perfect without moving. The best investment. Mine was ordered from he manufacture when the trailer was built.

We love our Toppers. Will never own a camper without them.
