Solera Sliders come complete with mounting hardware, as well as the awning rail. The hardware hole pattern is universal and will match most competitive brands, alleviating the need to patch holes.

Video Transcript for Lippert Solera Slider Slide-Topper Review

Speaker 1: We're going to be taking a look at the Solara Slider Slide Topper. These are going to come in black or white. They're going to come in a wide variety of sizes to fit your camper or RV. What's going to set these apart from others is these are actually going to extend out 50 inches, which is 8 inches farther than some of the other ones out there.You can see the box side here sits kind of inside of our T molding. This T molding hangs out past it so it will seal against the RV. When this is all the way in it has a seal so it sits against there and it doesn't allow water or anything to get inside.

However, if we didn't have our slide topper on, when we extend it out it exposes this top side. A lot of campsites have tree in them, so what that does it allows leaves, dirt, debris, water, to pool up and sit up on top of this. If you don't clean it off every single time, what happens is it's going to create mold.Also, if you don't clean it off, this rubber strip here, if nothing goes inside of it that rubber strip is going to push that as you close it, it's going to push those, bunch those leaves up against the side here. Well when you pull it in, it's going to push that molding in and it's going to allow water to drip inside there, which we don't want. If this molds up here, what happens when you slide it in, where's that mold going, it's going right inside of your RV and you don't want that to happen.

With our slide topper on it's going to allow the dirt, debris, leaves and water to run off the sides and not pool up on top of our box.Our topper is going to be constructed of a durable vinyl, so it's going to hold up to a wide range of weather conditions. All of our metal components are going to have a black powder coat finish, so they're going to resist any rust or corrosion. Our topper is going to last us a long, long time. With having our fabric extend past the edge of our box, or past the edge of our T molding at least two and a half inches, you can see we're going to have an overhang. With that overhand that gives us plenty of protection for the top of our box.when measuring to get the correct slide topper what you'll want to do is you'll want to measure from the outside edge of your T molding on your box to the opposite side outside of your T molding.

You want your fabric to extend at least two and a half inches off each side. What's really nice about these slide toppers is the spring that's inside this tube. That's going to allow our top to roll up and extend by the push of a button. When we extend our box out, our topper rolls. When we pull our box back in, the spring inside keeps tension on this tube and it rolls our top back up.As far as the installation goes, it's pretty simple.

Pretty straightforward installation. You can probably get it done in about 40, 45 minutes. However, I do recommend getting an extra set of hands to help get it installed.That will do it for the look at Solara Slider Slide Topper.

It wasn't hard to install, you definitely need two people. Prior to installation of the fabric into keder channel, I was able to rotate the gutter spout up and away from the keder channel instead of cutting it off like the installation video showed. I then resealed the gutter into place. Looks great! and so far it is working great!. 558383

Great product, easy to install, and definitely worth every penny. By the way, I installed mine by myself, of course, it would have been easier with 2 people. 501306


Comments

I purchased this slide out cover a year ago and it has worked flawlessly. I do volunteer work for various federal agencies as well as wildland firefighting and pretty much live in my travel trailer 247, and I never worry about bringing my slide out in when it rains or snows. In a year or so when I trade in my trailer and purchase a new one, if it doesnt have Lippert slide out covers, Ill definitely spend the money to purchase them.

I've had this installed for a year now and no issues with the quality and function. I would sujest that you or the installer use compression rivets other than metal screws if your unit has a thin outside wall made of fiberglass or tin with injection foaming for insulation. Screws will pull themselves out if there is no solid frame to anchor to. 628934

Review from a similar Lippert Components Solera Slide-Topper in RV Awnings


Received the Solara slide top awning yesterday. Very pleased with the awning. It was easy to install and looks good on the trailer. My only complaint concerns the self tapping screws included with the kit to anchor the hex bars. They are too soft and too easy to pop the head off. Which I did, and had to redrill and replace. Other than that am very pleased with my purchase. 487300


Comments

the slide top I purchased has held up well and works well. I did have a complaint about the quality of screws provided with the awning. Without being snippy I doubt anything has been done about that and I bet people are still snapping the heads off of those screws.

Review from a similar Lippert Components Solera Slide-Topper in RV Awnings


An "add-on" that is absolutely necessary -- this "slide topper" shields the top of the slide from grit, grime, trash, dust & potential mold so that it isn't pulled back into the RV each time the slide is retracted. Frankly, the written instructions leave much to be desired, but thanks to the etrailer videos a reasonably able DIY'ER can install (...can't over emphasize that watching and memorizing the videos is a must, however!). An excellent product that seems to wear well while providing "necessary" protection. 649131

This slid out awning was easy to install and does a great job. We are campground hosts and use our RV on a very regular basis. After one year of use it is holding up very well. Thanks etrailer! 451350


Comments

The awning has performed very well for us. We have been campground hosts in the Sierra Nevada Mtns for the last two seasons and have experienced a variety of weather conditions and have absolutely no problems with this awning. High quality and we would recommend it to anyone who wants to protect their investment. Signed “The Happy Camper”

We are very happy with the Solera 8.5' Slider (Slide-Topper) in Black w/ Black Hardware Item # LCV000168107 It is installed on our 2015 XLR Forest River slide out with no difficulties following the shipping instructions and a youtube 13.5 video making me very comfortable to do it. As you directed the 8.5 ft was a perfect fit for our 94 inch wide box. There is 4.5 inches per side of overhang to actually inner section of slide out... Lovely. Thank you 538366

It’s doing its job of keeping the slide out clean of dirt et. but when it rains it sags and starts filling with water. Can it be adjusted so it’s tighter and the water runs off ? Thank you. 530179


Comments

I contacted Lippert and they recommend to take the unit in to a service tech to have them release the tension on both ends and wind 14 times to ensure that the fabric is taut. They do not recommend the customer doing this on their own.

Awning works mostly as it should,however took me over 3 months to get all the peices. I was shuffled around and forgot about by etrailer's people for almost 3 months, by the time I got the awning I had completed my 2 week vacations for the year. I would never buy anything from them again. It was the worst online buying expeirience I have ever had 412357


Comments

The awning sags when it rains I have to stick something under it to keep it draining. But whats more frustrating is that no one ever apologized for the poor customer experience or checked back with me after the review. This tells me they really dont care about customer service

Excellent item. I raised the trailer wall mount ba about three inches higher than factory so it would shed rain better. The original topper was mounter such that the topper was level! It gathered rain and eventually failed. Works great! Reasonable price and took like a hour and a half to install with two people and two ladders. Prob less but I wasn't using the existing camper wall mount rail. 525101

I was apprehensive about the dimensions for ordering and the install itself. Not to worry though...etrailer site had the needed info for measuring to order AND even had an install video for a R-Pod that I was going to install on. (I have a 189). I am so pleased with the whole process I just smile all the way to my toes when I think about it. Thanks George and etrailer. 570617

We purchased this Solera Awning Topper approx. 1 year ago. Two of us installed it. Took approx an hour to install. Was an easy install except for the burs on the awning brackets, that slid into the slide brackets. Had to file them down a bit to get them to slide into the bracket. The Topper has worked great and no more worries of water standing, or even leakage on the Slide Out. Happy Campers here........great investment! 527363

Just finished installing the 8’ Solara Slide Topper on my Jayco Jay Feather 23 BHM. I’m very happy with the product so far. Time will tell how it holds up to the weather and highway travel. If you are the handy man type don’t hesitate to install this slider and save yourself an RV dealer’s installation charge. Just be sure to watch the video provided by ETrailer as the instructions that come with the slider leave a bit to be desired. 561331

While we love the slide out on our travel trailer, that is nothing but a potential problem. Leaves and debris lay on top and eventually prevent a good seal when closed, water pooling and potential leaking...and the list goes on. We made the decision to buy and self install the Solera Slide Topper. The topper arrived in a large, well packed cardboard tube. All parts were present. It took my wife and I about 1:45 minutes to complete the installation. We are super pleased with how it turned out and have no complaints at all. Once again...eTrailer to the rescue! I will note a couple of things that buyers/installers need to be aware of. While none of these are a deal breaker...knowledge is power. Some of the hardware (screws) are not painted black. After installation, I took a can of black spray paint and sprayed a little in a paper cup and used a Q-tip to apply the paint to the unpainted heads. The other thing is the tension. Wow...that is one strong spring! I found that the tension was so tight that it actually prevented the top of the slide out from fully extending. I knew this because before installing it I actually felt how tight the inside seal was against the interior wall when the slide was out. After the install I could easily slip my fingers between the inside trailer wall and the slideout seal. I ended up unwinding the spring by two full turns. After that, the slideout seal was firm against the interior wall! Yea! The awning itself was still very taunt and without sag. A word of caution about removing the spring keeper pin or unwinding the arm. Make sure you FULLY understand what you are doing. That is NOT something you want to mess up on. While we had no problems in doing this...I am familiar with spring loaded rotational forces and understand the instant damage they can do! Very pleased...and would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for an inexpensive way to cover and protect your slide out! 594525

The Slide Topper is a quality item made by Lippert Components. It took my wife and I about 90 minutes to install it but we took our time to make sure we didn't make any mistakes. The only reason I'm giving this 4 stars rather than 5 stars is because one of the self tapping screws to install the 7' long Cord rail was missing. Fortunately I had a screw that I could use. The Slide Topper arrived faster than it was scheduled to so etrailer did a great job at making sure my order was on its way quickly. I'd buy this item again if I need to and I will definitely buy from etrailer again! 522634

I studied the installation instructions prior to the awnings arrival, install went well. Love the slideout awning, keeps rain, dirt and leaves out. Only issue for me was does it come with the trim/mounting or not. You folks said no, I double checked with mfg. and they said no. So I ordered a piece if trim to make sure I could actually install it when it arrived (cost over $100, with expensive freight). Guess what, it came with the trim piece. 449245


Comments

Installation went fairly easy. The operation and quality is excellent. Had concerns while ordering if the drip rail was encluded with the kit, was told no and so I ordered one frm the mfg. Guess what was the first thing out of the carton,yep the drip rail. Otherwise great !

Well made product that has provided the protection I was looking for. Easy to install after watching the video online. All of the parts and pieces went together as described. I only wish I had ordered the cover at least two inches wider than I did. My slide is covered but with an extra inch on both side I would not have to worry about blowing rain as much. I did follow the measuring instructions provided but still feel I came up about two inches short of what I really needed. 481774

Everything about the topper was at least as good as I had hoped for, except for one minor issue. The small caps that fit into the ends of the roller arms came lose on the first trip. The self-tihreading set screws didn't stay tight enough to hold the caps in. I called to order a new set, but was rather disappointed that I would be charged for them after spending hundreds of dollars for the topper. I decided that I could cement them in place with epoxy adhesive. Still, it is a very well made product that I will definitely look for if I ever need another topper. You'll be glad you chose Solera if you're looking for a high quality topper at a decent price. It's also easy to install. Best wishes, Larry L. 412969


Comments

It has been over a year since I installed the Solera topper and I am very happy with my purchase. One benefit that I havent seen mentioned is the noise reduction when it rains. Without the topper it sounded like someone was making popcorn in a very large microwave oven. All I hear now is the soothing sound of the rain. Im glad to have the topper and I would recommend it to anyone.

After I placed an order for a slide topper, etrailer sent an email indicating it was not in stock. However, they told me when it would ship approximately and they kept in touch during the waiting period. The item was delivered in excellent condition. I would not hesitate to use etrailer as my Internet source for my camping trailer needs. 335142

We have since traded that trailer so, I cant give you a long term review. However, I was so pleased with etrailer that I ordered and installed 2 slide toppers for our new unit.

Appears to be well made and attractive, nice addition to my brown Cougar. although the directions are vague and diagrams need to be improved I was able to assemble it in a reasonable amount of time. The sizing was correct and provides a lot of protection for my slide out. 423546

Working as well as when new, purchased a second one sized for a 179 r-pod with same results although a small modification was necessary on the r-pod gutter drain spouts to install. Pleased with both.

After a year the product I purchased and installed has been wonderful. As you can see from the picture(s) it is still in great shape and protects our camper slide. Topper was easy to install for a DYI and the assistance of video on installation prep and advice from etrailer was the ticket to successfully completing the job with no trouble. Topper material is quality material and hardware was very good. Love the results and no issues with anything falling on the top of my slide increasing the risk of damage to slide and or seals. 541528

I would like to leave a positive review (5 stars) for the Solera Slide Toppers that I bought from Etrailer. I bought the 12.5" and 8" both white with white hardware. I was trying to find where to leave the review on the web site but was unable to do so.. I have to say, they were very easy to install. Anyone who can use a hand drill and a caulk gun can install these. I put them on in only a few short hours and they turned out very nice. I posted it to a page on FB and got over 121 thumbs up and around 60 positive comments. Folks were telling me that my post was inspirational enough to them that they wanted to add these toppers to their RV. Thanks for the great product and for the price match that you guys guarantee!! Please feel free to share my pics on etrailer.com and my review as well. 475434

Great product. We'll made and not worried about my slide anymore. Installed in an hour with help from one other person. etrailer had to verify an odd address (to a campsite) and called to double check on it quick. Then shipped same day a few hours later. I actually, very regularly order everything online from the biggest online retail company you know of, because they do have it. However I took a chance and got it delivered for around the same price and in less than 48 hrs. Will be ordering all of my trailer needs from etrailer. These people are good at what they do! 468403

Review from a similar Lippert Components Solera Slide-Topper in RV Awnings


Great product! Installed in a couple of hours with just a handful of tools. Make sure you have some outdoor clear silicone and a square screwdriver bit before you get started as you will need them during installation. Love my new slide awning and don’t have to worry about debris getting on the top of my slide out any more. I highly recommend this product! 517338

Review from a similar Lippert Components Solera Slide-Topper in RV Awnings


Installation went smoothly with a couple minor exceptions. I was short one screw on the fabric attachment track. I wish they would just include a couple extra just to be sure. Then, one of the four self tapping screws that secure the hex bars in place sheared off before it went all the way in. Now there is a short stub left recessed in the hole so I guess with that and the other three screws, it's not going anywhere. Make sure to order some butyl tape to go under all of the parts that mate to the camper as the kit does not come bundled with it. It is good to use this stuff any time you are using a fastener to penetrate the camper walls. Lastly, when determining the width, I ordered based on the total width of the slideout, including the flanges and it still came out a bit shorter than I wanted so add another half a foot to that dimension to select the proper width. 528273

Review from a similar Lippert Components Solera Slide-Topper in RV Awnings


Installed this 13 ft. slide cover in just a couple of hours, a very easy install. I watched the video, and read other reviews and it was a big help. One thing I did different than others is I installed the cord channel that fastens to the coach wall so that the screw heads are under the awning for a little more protection. I have about 4 inches of slope. Take the time to get the measurements recommended by etrailer and install will be easy and correct. I received the product within 3 days, and as usual the quality is very good. I will continue to purchase products from etrailer the quality and shipping speed is always the best. 549301

Review from a similar Lippert Components Solera Slide-Topper in RV Awnings


I would like to leave a positive review (5 stars) for the Solera Slide Toppers that I bought from etrailer. I bought the 12.5" and 8" both white with white hardware. I was trying to find where to leave the review on the web site but was unable to do so.. I have to say, they were very easy to install. Anyone who can use a hand drill and a caulk gun can install these. I put them on in only a few short hours and they turned out very nice. I posted it to a page on FB and got over 121 thumbs up and around 60 positive comments. Folks were telling me that my post was inspirational enough to them that they wanted to add these toppers to their RV. Thanks for the great product and for the price match that you guys guarantee!! Please feel free to share my pics on etrailer.com and my review as well. 475436

  • Recommended Slide Topper for a 70 Inch Long and 146 Inch Long Slide-Out
  • In order to choose the correct slide topper for your slide-outs you will need to measure the length of the slide for the outside of each flange.

  • Recommended Slide Out Awning Slide-Toppers Based on Flange to Flange Measurements
  • For your slide out that is 73.25 inches if that measurement includes the flanges on the sides, then you will use the Solera 6.5' Slider (Slide-Topper) in Black w/ Black Hardware # LCV000165063.

  • Slide Out Awning Recommendation for 73 inch and 79-1/4 inch Slide Outs
  • For the 73 inch slide out the correct black slide-out awning is the Solera Slide Out Awning part # LCV000165063 and then for the slide out that measures 79-1/4 inch you'd want the part # LCV000168105 and you'd be set.

  • Where to Measure to Select the Right Size Slide-Out Topper/Awning
  • The only measurement I would need is the overall width of the slide-out including the flanges or trim around the perimeter of the slide-out. So if that measurement were 72 inches overall then you would use a 6-1/2 foot option such as # LCV000165063. It fits slide-outs that are 68 to 73-3/4 inches wide. I have linked a video and included a link to the slide-out awning main page for you.

  • Slide Out Awning Recommendation for 74 inch Slide Out

  • Slide Out Awning Toppers for 79-3/4 Inch, 106-1/4 Inch, and 67-7/8 Inch Long Slide Outs
  • For a slide out that is 79-3/4 inches you could probably use a 7 foot topper such as # LCV000168105 which is going to be 84 inches long. It would be 2-1/8 inches on each side.

  • For slide out number 1 which is 73 inches you would want the part # LCV000165063 which you referenced. Slide out number 2 which measures 119 inches needs the part # LCV000182037.

  • Solera Slider Awning Support Arm Bracket Mounting on R-Pod
  • Attaching the support arm bracket onto the slide out of your R-Pod would not require special steps beyond what you saw in the install video that I attached. The weight of the slide topper is lighter than you think most likely so the 5 self-tappers on each bracket would be strong enough.
