I'm not sure what "toppers" are. Also I bought this used so I don't know if this was a factory fix or not. It does seem odd that FR would install a drip pan for a possible leak

Sorry a "topper" is a small awning that opens with the slide and keeps rain etc off the slide top when open. Its got overhang on all sides to help keep water from the seals. On a 2nd look, the sealing outside does not look 4 years old. I'd ask the seller if known what that rig is for.

I bought my trailer new in October of 2013 and those were in it when I bought it. I did have a slide topper installed before I picked up the new trailer. When you retract the slide if it is raining the seals wipe the side of the slide as it is retracted and those drains catch any water that drips off during that time and drains it outside instead of on your floor.

Our old Grey Wolf had them too. I never noticed any water going through them, but they were there. Wouldn't work on flush floor slides.
