Slide Topper Confusion

Recently purchased an Avenger 27BBS which has a 15 ft. slide out. I am wanting to order a Dometic Topper for the slide out and I am getting conflicting information on ordering the correct size. I called customer service at Dometic and I asked the lady if I order the length of the topper by the length of the slide or should there be any overhang. She said for the 15 ftl slide order a 180 in. topper. Instructions upon ordering from Camping World says "measure exact lenght of slideout, add 6" and if necessary round to next highest 1/2 ft. This seems to be some of the typical conflicting info I tend to get from the distributers and the manufacturerers. So I come to the more knowledgable folks in the RV world, the owners on a RV forum. I'm have about decided to leave it bare and sweep it off before retracting, but what are your experiences in proper sizing for toppers? Thanks for any input!!

I'd order it 6" longer, rain and debris don't fall straight down. Make sure you know where the mounting hard points are in the walls.

Go to the website of the topper manufacturer for the correct information. I would worry about a topper that long flapping in the wind.
