We had nice weather today here in Seattle. It was cold but the sun was out so I installed my Tough Tops Slide Toppers today. I started at noon and was finished at 4:30. I took a 30 minute break so it took me about 4 hours to remove to slide toppers and install two new toppers.

Tough Tops sent good instructions with pictures for removing my old tops and installing the new ones.

Instructions call for two people but I did the job mostly alone. My wife did help with one topper by holding it up with a broom so I could feed the topper into the two slots.

Removing the old slide tops was somewhat difficult as I caulked them as they delaminated. I had to cut the caulking to break the old topper loose from the motorhome.

After removing my old tops I took some time to clean the area covered by the tops prior to installing the new tops.

Here are pictures.

Nice job, those old ones were rough. Glad you now have slider top protection. (because the old ones did not appear to be doing thier job any more). This is the first mod I did to my MH when we brought her home.
