Dometic Slide Topper Deluxe or Elite?

Like many, I wish that I had odered our 2015 23ss with a slide topper when we purchased the unit last year. After a full season under my belt, I think it's time to get one. Dometic appears to be the manufacture of choice. Other than the canopy color options with the Elite, the Elite has the metal weathershield.

Is the weathershield worth the upcharge of around $100? Anyone have any good or bad feedback with either model?

Thanks

All my awnings have had the weather shield but none of my slide toppers have had the weather shield and have never had an issue with them. I've had Dometic slide toppers for 15 years without incident.

We put a Deluxe on our 23SS nearly 8 years ago and it still works great.

We purchased the Elite in black. Great addition and worth the $100 just in the way they look. American RV Sales in California had the best price by far. Shipping was free. We have one that is 14' that pools a little water when it rains abnormally hard like it has this month (in Texas). I solved that by using a PVC support under the cover. They are great otherwise.

I used a rubber ball like a kids inflated one from Target put in the middle and keeps water off to either end and just need a broom handle to push it under and push it out when done. I found this idea from someone in PA Dutch Country when we visited Thousand Trails CG last Fall easy to carry around too, just have to remember to get it out before sliding slide
