What size slide toppers for Crusader 295rst?
I am considering putting slide toppers on our Crusader. It is at the dealer and I don't know what sizes I need for the 3 slide outs. I think what the dealer wants to install them is too much. I would like to get a second opinion from a RV service center.

Unless someone chimes in with your exact same model and knows the slide lengths, you will need to measure them.

When I ordered for SOB 5th wheel, I needed to give them the exact lengths of the slides.

If you log onto carefree slide toppers they have info on how to measure your slides and figure out what you need for your application.

My Crusader came with the rails already installed on the sides of the RV above each slide.
It's a "no brainer" for a dealer to install the proper size then.
PS: Love my slide toppers! :trink39:

I just got them for our 295, I know for the bedroom slide I ordered 66 inch topper, but do not recall the others. I will check tonight and get back to you. I will say this, the longer slides are a 2 man job to install. I have installed slide toppers on previous campers, and they typically take about 90 minutes working alone. I don't know about your dealer, but our dealer wants $150 per hour per man. That can add up real quick. By the way the slide over the refrigerator and stove will be tricky as the awning rail is so close to the slide.

The lengths that I purchased were , 66", 126", 156". I have not had a chance to install them yet, but you should confirm these lengths. Some manufacturers toppers vary in length

Stock rails may not have the correct pitch needed for water runoff. I know this first hand because my large side needed the stock Prime Time rail removed & new one installed for proper pitch. Be honest with the cost and time it and the fact I am not a pro, donít want to mess up drilling holes in my RV I paid my dealer to install them on my Crusader 296BHS labor was like $300 ish and worth every penny, installed last month.
