Slide Topper brand name?

Anyone know what slide toppers CC was using in the 2008 timeframe?

I finally figured out a "drip" sound I was hearing laying in bed during rain... my slide topper partially separated from the coach so water was dripping down onto the top of the slide.

Anyway, I am hoping I can undo the strip and re-attach the fabric to the coach better.

Would like to see a you tube video first... and am open to any info from others that have worked on theirs?

In the bathroom behind the medicine cabinet mirrored doors there should be a list of toppers. I have Stone Voss toppers now, cost $200 less.

My slide covers are Girard and the stitching rotted out. I replaced them with better fabric and stitching from Stone Vos for less than what Girard wanted.

Stone Voss is just the fabric, right? I was looking for the name of the mechanism itself so I can google it, find vids, etc.

Turns out the answer is on the build sheet... CAREFREE.

TIP: I took a photo of that sheet and have it on my phone so it's always handy... now I just need to remember to look at it before asking here.

Thanks all... I'll let you know what happens. Looks like it might be a two person job so I'll need to get a helper... that isn't my wife.

For others with the Carefree toppers (and other stuff) from the 2007 or so timeframe.

This page has all the discontinued stuff.

Turns out I have the Summit model slide toppers with the LIFT BAR option. The full manual and part list is available on this page too.

My slide toppers (same models) also separated from the coach rail - as with others the stitching came out.

My solution was to remove topper, and restitch the poly cord sleeve and reinstall with existing fabric - it was still good, only the stitching came out. I used a UV rated thread on a commercial sewing machine, you could also take it to a automotive upholstery shop to stitch. I also restitched the rest of the edges for good measure while it was down.

You do need a couple of extra hands and ladders to take them off and reinstall. Remember to lock the spring in the roller with a large cotter key/screwdriver before you remove ends - otherwise it will fully unwind..... Had that happen once. PITA to rewind.

Hope this helps,
Brian

Yeah, went back and forth as it appears I could just restitch.

I'm just going to order 4 new toppers from Stone Vos though. The new ones should last me the rest of the time I own the coach and still be in good shape for the next owner.
