Slide topper 2020 Forest River RV Cherokee Grey Wolf 19SM

I bought a 19sm back in March, was told by the salesman that it was prepped for a slide topper, paid for the slide topper, and now they say they can't get it, 9 months later.


Has anyone had any luck finding a rear slide topper for this?

Did they say they just can’t get it right now, or did they say they will never be able to get it? There are a lot of things in all industries that just aren’t obtainable right now due to China and COVID. Hopefully some of these things will be available in the (near) future.

Welcome to the forum from New Jersey, Last i knew when i was looking for them is they are built to size. I sent them measurements to the dealership and they sent me a quote,Its possible they can't install it for you for 9 months, Get your $ back and go somewhere else.

Welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. Myself I would ask for my money back from the dealer and purchase the topper from an aftermarket Mfg. I put two on my rig a year after I bought it.

The issue may be that you're needing it for the rear bed slide. They tend to slide out much farther than normal slide outs, so you have to buy special slide toppers for them and that may be part of the problem.

This is correct.
I don't think slidetoppers are easy to find for rear bed slide RVs.
I have never seen one on any rear bed slide RV. Not on any RV forum nor out in public.
They may exist but I know this has been an issue discussed on RV forums since they first came out years ago.

Our Rockwood has a rear bed slide, and we have a slide cover on it (and on the front living room/dining room slide as well). I agree you may be able to find after market covers that will fit, as long as you do your research with accurate measurements in hand. Best of luck - it's nice having those covers!

Signature information is up-to-date. We have the Rockwood Signature 8335BSS. Rear (king size) bed slide is fairly large, but not nearly as big as the living room/dining room slide. We have covers on both (and the TT came with both already installed by Rockwood).

Finally found the floorpan of the OP's TT. Didn't realize that slide goes straight out the back of the TT on that model. Ours is in the back, but the slide goes out the driver's side - apples to oranges, I guess. Didn't mean to muddy the waters. If this could have been installed under normal circumstances, I still believe it can be done - but our example is obviously not a good one since the rear slide goes in a different direction.

Yep, I thought the same thing, that's why I asked which model number.
Rear bed slideouts are different than the typical side slideout.
