To keep debris from landing on the top of the slide so you won't damage the seals when you bring in the slide. I go up on the roof to check the slides just to be certain if I'm in the trees and any amount of wind has been blowing.

They also shade the roof of the slides, reducing the amount of heat coming in through the roof.

Hi oldbeek,
Rain, heat and debris are just about it. My passenger slide does not have a topper. I always roll out the main awning at least enough to cover the slide. Toppers help quite a bit in the summer and when parked under trees.
