We are about to pull the trigger and order a Rockwood 2906ws....with the slide toppers. Our last trailer didn't have one and we got tired of climbing the ladder to clean off the one slide; didn't like the idea of having to clear off three slides.

Thank you for the ideas!
Part of our decision was having the "shade" for the slide out because of our hot Arkansas sun.
The leaf blower idea is a good one because I know that there is sure to be some things that will blow under the covers.

FR installs the same brands that you can get anywhere else.
There are only two brands of toppers made, Dometic and Carefree.
Most FR units come with Dometic.

With my pickup and tt, I have room to carry a folding ladder I picked up at Lowes on sale. Blowing off the slide is not an issue. I can not remember not being in a cq that some one did not have one that one might lend one out. Made the mistake of thinking the slide would push off leaves, spend a good hour digging out pine needles out from under seal.

One of the draw backs of having a small MH is not having the space to carry all the things you might want to carry,,, the other draw back is not being able to go wondering,,, with out breaking camp !!!
I did see a pretty good buy on a Telescoping ladder the other day on the internet !!!
It had a weight capacity of #330 !!! I think it was less than $80 ???

That's what I use. Light weight and takes up very little space.

X2 on the telescoping ladder. I use mine all the time even at home. One draw back I found with the slide toppers is my TT came with a sunroof in the slide over the dining table. Now I look up at the topper sitting at the table. Have thought about seeing if someone can sew in a clear vinyl window in the topper.

I wish our Dinning Room Skylight had a topper over it !!!
I am in the process of painting it now,,, I have 3 coats of Ultra White paint on it,,, and plan to put one more coat on it today !!!
That Skylight has allowed so much Heat & Sunlight in it has pretty much cooked the wimpy white shad that came with the Sunseeker 2500TS !!!
I am hoping to fix the shade with spray starch,,, some thing I read about here on this Forum a while back !!!
