Are you wanting to replace an existing slide topper? If so, I would suggest you contact a company called ShadePro www.shadepro.net. We have replaced several toppers using their products and been happy with them.

Just bought 2 from them. Excellent quality and reasonable price,as in a lot cheaper than their competitors. They have a store on Ebay.

You need to fix the leak and, if the roof of the slideout is sagging, that needs to be corrected. An slideout awning (aka slide topper) might reduce the problem but it will not cure it. Keep in mind that rain does get blown about and will find its way under the topper.

The roof is not sagging but the trim piece looks like it is bowed. I have not had a chance to look at it closer yet. It rained really hard last time we had it out and it leaked.

A slide topper may help the problem, but it will not cure it. If the top of the slide is sagging, you need to find out how bad the structural problem is...most likely rot.

The top of the slide is not sagging. Its just the trim piece that looks warped.
