I feel toppers are good to have as long as they are maintained, they do need to be adjusted from time to time and kept clean, they do help protect the roof of the sideouts.

If it is raining and there is no toppers on the slideout the rain is very loud as it hit the roof, but with a topper the sound is there but not directly on the roof so it insulates the sound and with the way the topper rolls as you retract your slideout mostly everything rolls off of the topper and therefore no leaves or other stuff comes in with the sildeout.

I have a telescoping pole with a 90 deg joint and a brush and squeegee that takes about 3 minutes and saves the climb. Seems to do the trick

Quite simple, get them.
For the very reasonable cost when installed at the factory, they are worth every penny. We have had ZERO issues with ours.
And one thing that hasn't been mentioned, is that they keep a lot of water off of the slide roofs, which means a lot less chance of getting water leaking past the slide seals, and rotting out your camper. Now what is that worth?

Have them on mine. Save more work than they require in maintenance.
One aspect not mentioned here is eventual resale. Since the pros outweigh the cons, they make a nice selling point as do most options that often help tip the scales on on a buyer's decision.

Didn't have them on first TT and have them now on the 5er. Love them. Less time working and more time drinking cold beverages relaxing. Camping with our last TT was more like a job to me. Nothing was electric or automatic and it's hot down here in the summer to be sweeping off slides or twisting crank handles. I mean after all we're supposed to be enjoying this aren't we. Get them, drink beer, enjoy camping.

I have skylights in my slide. So no toppers for me.

That is an excellant plan! My first 2 campers did not have them. This 1 does. I like them and have never found them to be noisy.

My campsite is a wooded location. I wouldn't have a camper without them. Ordering a new Cherokee 39H Tuesday, and am getting the 4 toppers. Our current camper has them and I love it. Pricy? Probably but well worth it in my opinion.
