Isn't that a little too late? You've already pulled the debris through the seal?

The topper really helps keep the debris off the roof. When you put the slide locks in it provides opportunity to check it. In the 8 years we had our 21 SS I can't remember a time we had debris under the topper.

Interesting. Same 2 reasons the salesman gave me - advising against adding a topper when we were buying our 21SS.

After few years with a slide-out I'm thinking I'd rather have a topper than not.
