Where is slide topper info

I have a 2005 Dolphin Limited that needs the slide topper replaced over the bedroom/closet slide. Before I can order the slide topper, I need the info that tells me what kind/size to get. Everyone tells me the info is on a tag located on the topper itself. But I've looked, top and bottom. And even extended the topper out to the end to see if it was on a piece of topper that doesn't see the light of day. But no luck. Can anyone tell me where I might find this info or where online or anyplace else I can find out what type of slide topper I need? BTW: I have the owner's manual and all paperwork that came with the motorhome and nowhere does it say what type of slide topper I need. It describes everything I need to install it and how to install it but not what type or model number I need.

It's a pain but you have to extend the topper out then unrool till you get to the metal tube you will see the white tag on the tube take all the numbers model, serial, I think a production number also. Get someone to help hold and write down numbers

You don't need to go to all that trouble. Simply measure the width of the material and then how far out the slide moves then contact these folks. They will custom build you a cover, better and cheaper than the OEM material.

Measure from the inside of the end caps on both ends and subtract 1-1/2" this will give you how long. Most if not all A&E slide topper awning material is 42" wide. You can order the original replacment material from (rvwholesaler.com) for 95$ plus shipping for a 192" by 42" peice and cut it to the length you want. Look on the internet for how to install it"s real easy but takes two people.

I second this advice! Just replaced the slide topper on my 2006 National Sea Breeze from this company. Just gave them the measurements and they sent the right size. My son and I replaced the living room slide topper in about 45 minutes.

I got mine from Tough Top Awnings. Came in just a few days, installed easily and look great. Better quality material than the A&E fabric too.

Sorry, didn't realize the quick response didn't refer back to the post. I'm talking about Our Time's response with the link. Cost total of $119 for couch/dinette slide topper.
