This simple device is going to keep your slide out awning from billowing and damaging your RV when you are out on the road. This is going to work with all Solera 1000 and 5000 series slide toppers.

The roller bracket is going to install on the end cap of your roller tube, and the stop bracket is going to install on the side of your RV.

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (71 Customer Reviews)

This simple device keeps your slide-out awning from billowing and damaging your RV when you're on the road. Installs on the endcap of your Solera slide-topper's roller tube and the side of your motorhome.


Install was easy and product looks good. Have not been in a strong wind yet, so do not know if the anti billow works. Last product I used the winds were so strong that the arm somehow turned past the stop and the awning blew up like a parachute. Will see how this one holds up.


DO NOT BUY THIS IF YOU HAVE A SOLERA 5000 SERIES SLIDE TOPPER! When doing a fit check before installing I discovered that the foot of this device would be prevented from rotating on the topper by the horizontal bar of the topper! Had I mounted this, it would have done significant damage to the topper, the slide, or both! And etrailer will not allow me to return it due to the cost of return shipping.

I reached out to Lippert and there was a running change to the kit that will now allow it to work with the 5000 series toppers. We will have a replacement sent out to you.

Lee P.


UPDATE, after my initial review, etrailer contacted Lippert to alert them of the issue. Lippert revised the topper anti-billowing kit to work with all its topper models. etrailer sent me a new kit at no charge, which I confirmed does now work with the 5000 series topper. 5 stars to etrailer for customer service and follow up!

Heck yeah! That is great to hear Lee. Thank you for allowing us to fix this.


I had other RVs without the kit, it made travel less enjoyable.

Is something like this for slide covers that like to billow?

Etrailer Expert

Brooke M.


Glad to hear it made big difference! It looks like this is the only kind of kit we have for anti billowing. We will have to keep an eye for more products like this to add in the future!


Read the directions and understand how it works before you install it. The directions are clear but positioning is slightly different on each trailer. Once I had a plan Installation was easy. Works as advertised. I am a satisfied customer.


Very satisfied! Works as it should!



works as it should!!


I wish it would come in white. I have to paint them beforfe installing them.

Etrailer Expert

Katrina B.


I hope that you havent painted this kit yet! I do see that we do have this Lippert Anti-Billowing Kit in white. Please check out part # LC25TF. Our customer service team can work on getting a return and order set up for you for this kit.


The Solera Slide Topper appears to be of good construction. Even considering the damaged shipping tube and gouging observed on one of the idler head spring assemblies due to the container having been damaged in transit and re-tped.


I bought a Reese fifth wheel from you recently, I like your service, prices and availability


If you've ever driven thru Wyoming's South Pass and had your slide topper turn into a parachute then this is just what you need. Easy to install and as always the right item when ordered thru e-trailer.


Works excellent. Easy to understand in structions.


Easy install and should function as designed. Installing second one tomorrow with one more ordered along with its topper that hasn't shipped yet.



Lucky to have not used this. Easy to install and should serve its purpose if the awnings ever come loose.


Exactly what was ordered, was received. Thanks E-trailer.


Kate was terrific. Great service, and I received the part in a couple of days.


Good service as far as timely and letting me know in regards to shipping, but NO instructions with the product.

So, it is not installed yet so I’m UN sure how it fits or how well it works = the score of 3 (it could be higher??)

I found the instructions from one of our Expert Answers for you and I have attached the link.


This was a perfect replacement for my broken one. Installed easily in a few minutes.


I ordered this at the same time I ordered a slide topper. Though I hadn't had an experience with my topper awning billowing (because I hadn't installed it yet,)I thought it would be a good idea to install it pre-emptively. It was easy to install. At least I won't worry about the fabric billowing while driving at highway speeds in the future.


Perfect replacement


This came in the mail while I was attaching the last screws on the topper. This went straight from the mail box to the trailer wall and squeezed it into my really tight installation. Should work fine. That slide topper is now DONE.


Works great.


Works just like it’s supposed to. I have a 24’ long slide so I installed an anti-billowing kit at each end.


Perfect fit


Easy to install after two previous ones. Will do just fine if following instructions and checking location before final attachment.


Perfect replacement and very easy to switch out. Customer service is phenomenal!


I have not installed this item yet because it did not come with instructions nor did I find anything on e- trailers other than describing the product, also the package in which it came in was ripped and did not contain any screws


Sturdy and well made! Your service and the way you take care of your customers is the reason I will buy from you for all my trailer needs!!

  • Lippert Components Anti Billow Arm Inner Diameter
    The Lippert Components Anti-Billowing Kit for Solera Slide Topper Awnings - Black # LC78FR is designed to fit right over the slide awning roller as pictured. The inside diameter of the arm is 2.545 inches according to my tech contact at Lippert.

  • Is The Lippert Anti-Billowing Kit A Compatible Replacement For The Dometic Anti-Billowing Kit
    I spoke with the manufacturer, Lippert, and was told that the Lippert Anti-Billowing Kit for Solera Slide Topper Awnings # LC78FR is only going to be compatible with Solera slide out awnings so if you're awning is Solera branded you'll be fine using this product. If you have a Dometic awning then you'll need to use the Dometic branded Anti-Billow Kit.

  • Can Lippert Anti-Billowing Kit Work if Installed on Rear Side of Slide Topper
    In order for the Lippert Anti-Billowing Kit # LC78FR to work it has to install on the front side of the slide out awning as that is the side that would catch the wind when travelling down the highway. Having it on the back side might help a little bit but it won't be nearly as effective as if it were on the front side.

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Recommendation for 2021 Ram 2500 Short Bed
    For a 20K rated hitch, I suggest the B&W Companion OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch w/ Slider for Ram Towing Prep Package, # BWRVK3670. This is specially designed to attach to the receivers on your factory 5th-wheel towing prep package, the slider base on this hitch helps eliminate clearance concerns during slow-speed turns and the dual-jaw hitch removes without a trace for full bed access. The 1" thick (more than any other fifth wheel hitch) dual jaws provide a 360-degree jaw-to-king-pin contact...

  • Can 13-1/2 foot Slide Topper Fit 153.5 inch Slide Out
    You could go with the longer slide out awning part # LCV000168110 that you are wanting. For that small of a size difference there would be no issues fitting the awning.

  • Replacement Anti-Billowing Device for Solera Slide-Out Topper Awning
    The only anti-billowing parts we have on our site are designed for Lippert Solera Slide-Out Awnings and come in the following colors: - Black # LC78FR - White # LC25TF These install on the roll bar piece of the awning and the installation instructions are attached for you to reference.
