acrylic Slide Topper? What do you think? Worth it?

I'm thinking of replacing a worn vinyl slide topper with an acrylic slide topper.

What do you think?

Is it worth the extra dollars?

Does it last longer?

Thanks in advance for your thought.

I went with the top line woven fabric via ShadePro. Great on all counts. $1200 for all 4 large slides, installed.

Call here and talk to Chris:

Chris is a coach owner and uses the best materials available to make his toppers. He will absolutely not lead you astray.

Tell him I said hello.

acrylic Slide Topper? What do you think? Worth it?

I recently replaced all three of my black acrylic slide toppers after 10 years of use. The largest of the three developed a slight rain water leak but the other two were fine. I replaced all of them just to be safe. 10 years is a good service life IMO. As already mentioned, Chris at Stone Vos is a good aftermarket supplier of premium slide topper and awning materials. His acrylic toppers look even more durable than my OE toppers, so I don't expect I'll have to replace them ever again.
