We have skylights on our slide and have a the topper. Skylights adds to much heat to the trailer in the summer. We'll never buy another trailer with skylights in the slide. The topper is a must for us. The less we have to do at setting up and packing up the better. More time to enjoy.

We wanted them on our first trailer but the dealer quote was ridiculous (over $2000.00) We camp with a lot of hemlock and cedar hanging over our unit and all of it is sticky.
We also get drips off the trees for hours after a rain and they must be the size of golf balls from the noise. Another issue with the old trailer is it started to sink and this twisted the bedroom slide causing it to leak, toppers would have stopped the water from pooling and leaking in.
We just bought a new 2608ws and the dealer gave us a super deal on the two slide toppers, $500.00 supplied and installed for the pair. So yes we bought them and are sure we will love them.

Great thread guys. Our new W.Cat 344qb is on its way and it had the slide toppers added to her. Glad I did. Was approx $1500. One hint about those toppers from a friend of mine.... "careful if parked for a while and you want to roll them in.......they make a fantastic home for hornets nests......."

We have a fake hornet nest we hang at our trailer, hornets are territorial and won't build within app 50 ft of another nest, they go to the in laws place instead.

Our first 2 TTs didn't have them but our current FW does. One of our slides is a deep super slide, the entire length of kitchen living area. That topper is loud during wind. Sounds like people stomping or running on the roof. However, the other 2 toppers are quite. They keep the camper cooler, keep rain from leaking in the slide and less hassle when packing up. All worth it to us. I'd definitely get them again.

Some one said that a cheap blow up air mattress between the top and the topper will stop the flapping noise.

If you camp in early Spring or late Fall and break camp early in the morning, frozen condensation/snow on the material will fight being rolled up. Still worth it IMHO.
