Thank you in advance
I'm no expert and only have had one topper and a slide around 9 feet in length and installed it myself. It seems to me the issue with water pooling is inherent to long toppers. It also seems to me that many topper are mounted too low at the trailer wall to give a nice slope, but with the small space there, there might be no other way to mount it.
I found this answer on iRV2 forum whether the topper can be tightened and seems reasonable to me...
"Yes, they can definitely be tightened! Contact the topper manufacturer and give them the model # of your topper. They will e-mail you the instructions to do this. I did this on my bedroom slide topper a few months ago and the difference was amazing"
