Slide Toppers

Hi all, I just had my slide toppers repaced and I'm very happy with the job that was done. The guy who did them couldn't believe they were A&E's, he had never seen this model before and was very impressed with them. He uses a 15 mil product that has a much smaller honeycomb membrane for longer life. He also micro adjusts the tension so there is no "flapping in the wind" at all. I would definitely recommend him if you need new slide toppers. We were full timing for 3 1/2 of the five years and I guess the old ones lasted about as long as was reasonable. I don't very often recommend anyone but this guy and Dave Root are the exceptions. It's Ray's Mobile RV and his web site is www.rv.motorhome-answers.com. He works out of Yuma in the winter and Colorado in the summer. His phone # is 480 773-2976. By the way, he'll sell the toppers so you can do it yourself but after working with him for the afternoon on mine, having him do the install was well worth it. I'd have never got it done on my own.

Happy travels, Kent Sharon and Rocky (the frisbee catching Boston)

Kent and Sharon (and Rocky),

I cant get the link to the website to work. I need to replace side toppers and would like to check Rays site. Could you check to confirm that is the correct link?

Thanks !

We bought their replacement product only and installed it ourselves. Fit was great. I'll tell you in five years if t was better than OEM.

We bought our new Slide Topper from Ray a little over a year ago and installed it ourselves. The price was right and the instructions were right on!!! I recommend Ray for replacement fabric it's better than original for less money.
