Solera RV Slide Topper Awning

Without a slide-topper, the roof of your slide-out room is continually exposed and can accumulate leaves and bugs and different types of debris. That debris can build up along the rubber strip at the top of your box, preventing a firm seal when your slide-out is retracted. Rain water can then get in and pool on the top of your slide-out. If you don't clear the water off each time it rains, mold can begin to form. And when your slide-out is pulled in, that mold gets inside your RV.


Solera RV Slide Topper Awning

The Solera RV slide-out awning alleviates those problems by serving as a protective covering over the top of your RV's slide-out. Not only does it prevent debris from collecting on the roof of your slide-out, but it keeps water from pooling and potentially causing damage down the road. Because it mounts directly to the front of the slide box, the slide-out awning is able to automatically extend and retract every time the slide-out room is extended or retracted.


Durable Vinyl Fabric

Solera RV Slide Out Awning Fabric

The durable awning fabric holds up to the rigors of the outdoors. It's made of premium 13.5-oz vinyl, which is an upgrade over the 10-oz fabric used in many awnings. This fabric also features heat-welded seams to prevent leaks. And it is made to withstand cold temperatures down to -25 degrees Fahrenheit, so it won't crack or degrade during the winter.


Simple Installation

Use the self-tapping screws to secure the included access plate to the side of your slide-out, positioning the plate at the bottom of the T-molding. The two access brackets slide easily onto the access plate's track. The rods that are located at each end of the roller tube, which comes with the awning fabric already mounted, slide through the hole in the two access brackets.


The included awning rail is used to anchor the other side of the fabric to your RV. This rail can be mounted up to 5" above the trim on top of your slide box.

Ordered four additional toppers after trying one to try installing it by myself. Except for the step that requires two people to actually insert the topper fabric into the rail, it was a relatively simple process. Very impressed with the LCI product so far. I placed etrailer.com order on Tuesday, delivered on Friday. Pretty good service considering they also had the best price. 783817

One year later still solid as the day we installed it. Traveled 23,000 miles last year. Newfoundland to British Columbia and all over the Western half of North America. The slide topper was money well spent. Cooler, cleaner and quieter.

Great product for roof shade and roof maintenance. Keeps inside cooler in the summer sun. Had a problem installing one or two brackets where they didn't seem to grab well. Solved that problem with a few extra screws and been working great since. 410578

Review from a similar 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

Review from a similar Solera Slide-Topper in RV Awnings


This was just as the web page described. The size, fit was very good and it was easy to install. The video provided good install process. My slider is 82.5" I added 5" to it making it 87.5" divided that by 12" and ordered the 7' 6" topper. The material of the topper measured 7' 1/4" just as I was told by the sales rep. I am very happy with this topper. 645148

Review from a similar 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 Solera Slide-Topper in RV Awnings


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

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

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

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

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

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”

Review from a similar Solera Slide-Topper in RV Awnings


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

Review from a similar 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

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.

Review from a similar Solera Slide-Topper in RV Awnings


The over all product is very good and was easy to install. I am disappointed to the size of the topper. I followed the suggested sizing process and what I received was a topper that was not as wide as it should of been. My slide is 91" wide I added 5" to that which made it 96" I divided that by 12" which equals 8'. After I had installed the topper I found out the the topper material only measured 91" just over 7.5' wide. It just covers the slide with not overhang which is suggested. I called customer service and was told that the tube is where the length is measured from. My tube was only 94.5" still short of the 8' ordered. Customer service refunded me 5%. Just be aware that 8' topper does not mean 8'. I believe this is a issue with the manufacture. I would of returned it but I have to many holes drilled in my RV for the instillation. Measure before installing would be my advice. 645163

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

Review from a similar Solera Slide-Topper in RV Awnings


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


Comments
Our slide-out awning is still functioning perfectly. Since I had loosened the tension a bit I was concerned about it maintaining good tension over time. No problem. Still perfect! There is no noted degradation of the canopy or hardware. Thanks!

Review from a similar Solera Slide-Topper in RV Awnings


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

  • Correct Slide Topper Awning for 2020 Grand Design Imagine 2250RK
    The correct Solera RV Slide-Out Awning for a slide topper measuring 103" from the outside of each flange is part # LCV000168108 for black and part # LCV000163290 for white. I cannot recommend a different size but what I can tell you as that the fabric is going to completely cover the slide-out.

  • Recommended Cover Sizes for 103-Inch and 152-Inch Slide Outs
    To select the correct slider, you'll need a fabric size that extends at least 2-1/2 inches beyond each side of your slide box. Note that your box width should be measured on the outside front of the box, including the flange. For the 103-inch slide out, you'll need Solera 9' Slider (Slide-Topper) in Black w/ Black Hardware, # LCV000168108. This slider is 108 inches wide and has a box width range of 98 inches to 103-3/4 inches. For the 152-inch slide out, you'll need the Solera 13.5'...

  • Compatibility of Slide Topper Awnings with Aluminum Trailer
    Yes. The slide topper awnings like # LCV000168108 for example will be fine attaching to an aluminum trailer you will just attach to the frame structure like others. The brackets are powder coated so you won't have any corrosion issue and the hardware is zinc plated so you won't have any galvanic corrosion from dissimilar metals. You will just want to be careful to not overtighten the hardware so you don't strip the frame structure.
