Sllideout topper replacement

I have an 08 Camalot and have just started full timing. The topper on the driver front slideout is torn and needs repair. However, I'm thinking about replacing them all, considering the amount of use they'll be getting (and the cheap material and stitching used originally)

I'm looking for advice about what materials to use in the replacements and any sources recommended.

You can buy the normal replacements, and then you get to do it again in a few years. I got tired of this and had mine made by the following:



Stone Vos

7359 Cedarhurst St

Brooksville, Florida, 34613

423-360-3601

Give them a call and talk to Chris Throgmartin. He put a lot of study into materials. He presented information at several large gatherings and rallies and I think has the best solution.

Bob,
I just replaced the slideout covers on our 2004 Winnebago. I went with Toughtop Awnings. They are made to fit your coach and are a better fabric than most of the original equipment covers. They are easy to install and really look good when finished.
Good Luck,
Indiana Journey

X2 on the above. Chris a topper for me a few months ago and I was blown away by the quality of materials and workmanship.

Bob....Here is a thread on how I did the replacement. I repaired mine for $100.00 after five years and two years later they are still fine. There is a lot of excess material on the roller.

That's what I did too!!

Flip them over and get yeas out of the other half of the material.

I had one that ripped and had it fixed at a boat top repair shop for $40 when a new one for my full wall slide was $600
