My seals are designed to slide/push into a grooved area in the rail, and then the ends are screwed down. I had to replace the section under the bed when it got caught on the gear track. My local FR dealer ordered it for me (took in a section to show him). I don't remember the exact cost, but it was not expensive. They can order it by the foot.

Here's a pic of my slideout at roughly the same spot.

Hi Triguy,
Where did you get that slideout awning?

Triguy's slidetopper came from the factory, i think.
problem is, his slideout is on the side and the OP's is on the rear.

and as far as i know, no slide topper/awning manufacturer has made one for rear bed slide trailers.
i've never seen it as an option on rear bed slide models, nor have i ever seen one installed.
