Dont have them on my 8315bss. I do the climb and sweep b/4 bringing the slides in. If you ever park under an oak tree in the fall you will probably wish you had them. Thinking about adding them.

When we bought our Rockwood 2604, it was a dealer's stock unit. We had the dealer install one before we picked the tt up. I'm glad we did it, but it was expensive to have it done "aftermarket". When we ordered the new Windjammer last month, we spec'd them as a factory-installed option on boh slides, and it was less than having the dealer install one topper. I'm a believer so that you DON'T have to climb up and sweep acorns, sticks and leaves off the top of the slide before bringing it back in.

Well your are getting both sides. Another consideration is where you camp. If you camp around a lot of trees, like state parks, and do not mind crawling up on the roof of your trailer to clear any debris that have fallen on your slides then your probably do not need them. I know a lot people keep saying they are noisy but I had them on all of me trailers and can say i never heard anything from my toppers. When ordering options it is all about convenience. Could you do without electric jacks, could you do without a bike hitch, could you do without thermopane windows, or a bigger mattress, sure but why. It may sound crazy to say but another $1,000 or so to have all the coveniencesis is worth it to me. Especially after you put it into perspective you spent $$,$$$ on a truck and $$,$$$ on a trailer another $,$$$ of options I do not even think about. Just me!

We have them an would buy them again. Deeper the slide the more chance of wind noise, but there are ways to quiet them. NOW (from the factory) is the cheapest time to get them.

Last RV didn't have them. This 1 does and I would have them on the next 1 if there ever is a next 1.

I have one on mine it came with it. But if i buy another it will have one. Never had any nosie from ours and we have been in alot of wind at times. Maybe the springs on ours is too tight But it been on since new. In about another year will have to change it out as its starting to show its age.

Another "often asked" question.

A search on slide toppers here (green search box on PC browsers) will reveal hundreds of threads.
