A strong brush/broom for clearing slide toppers

Is anyone aware of a telescoping stiff brush/broom that has a head you can adjust to varying angles that you can reach and brush off/sweep stuff off slide toppers?

I hate to get out my ladder when I have to clear them.

Thanks

I wonder why they don't tell you how much it costs. Must be the RV surcharge.

You just needed to scroll further down.

Looking for domestic production.

Overseas production fell through. Excitement is still there, with hundreds of responses!



I tried to invent something but its lifespan was kinda short.

I'm wondering why you need to clean the top of the slide topper? Normally, anything on top will simply fall off as the topper rolls up.

Well maybe where you are, but we are in Western Oregon and it tends to rain plus under the pine/fir trees a lot. Those needles along with a little moisture stick like crazy.

When I get to my covered storage I try to put slides out for awhile to let them dry but in a 12' wide space it makes things a little tight for the neighbors if I left them out for several days.

My biggest problem, which the tool won't solve, is the needles building up in the valley between the awning and the roof. I go up twice a year and clean that but it is a pain. I need to find something to cover the gap but haven't figured it out yet.

Those rain gutter cleaning tools could probably be fitted with a large brush of some kind. I think that's what I'd try.
