Question about slide toppers

Does FR put them on at the factory?

Yes, when specified on the customer's build order , or when specified for dealer-stock orders.

Maybe, IF ordered----------

I thought I was getting slide toppers from the factory, but when I received my RV they were installed by the dealer. A cheaper topper!

Make sure you specify that the factory installs the toppers.

I wasn't aware that the factory could do it when I ordered mine last May. I had the same experience as Daisy - the dealer put the cheapest thing they could find onto ours.

My dealer just changed the sales agreement to factory-installed toppers. Apparently doing them in-house is a small cottage industry. Heads up!

When I ordered my trailer in December, the dealer and I completed a Forest River 2013 Windjammer Travel Trailer MSRP Order Form.

This order form listed factory options for the various Rockwood Windjammer models. The slide toppers were listed as 10-1798 small and 10-1798-1 large, which we selected among other options when placing my order.

The dealer said they could install any slide toppers if I wanted ones more expensive than those. The factory toppers appeared adequate to me. The item numbers and type of toppers may vary between other Forest River RVs.

Ours were factory installed, a reasonable price, and seem of good quality.
And they installed them correctly. I have seen a post on how their toppers don't work right, and it was because they were installed by someone with no clue. Probably the dealer.

We we're told by the Crusader rep at the Indy show that this wasn't a factory option on the Crusader.
