Slide Topper Awning

I need information on Slide Topper Awnings. I have read pros and cons on having a topper awning. Please give your recommendations.

If you have any trash get on top of your slide it will end up inside your RV. If you have them put on, ask how to protect them from high wind. We were caught in 70 mph crosswind one time and had to wire the awning to keep it from unrolling.

X2. Debris getting on top of the slide must be removed before retracting the slide if you don't want any inside, or avoiding tearing up the rubber seals. One time my slide had snow on top. When I retracted the slide (senior moment) it did a lot of damage. I had to extend the slide, climb atop the snowy, icy, roof, carrying a broom, and clear the slide roof.
Usually topper fabric is warranted for 2 years, so it may require replacement frequently.Toppers do flap/pop in winds, depending on direction.
