Solera RV Slide Topper Awning

How to Measure for an RV Slide-Out Awning

how to measure for an rv slide-out awning

To ensure you get the correct size awning for your slide-out, measure from outer edge to outer edge of the trim. You will need 7" of clearance on both sides of the slide-out for the awning. If you don't have 7" clearance on both sides, go down to the next size; this will still give your slide-out plenty of coverage.

If there are two slide-outs next to each other, you will need a total of 14" of clearance between them for them both to have a slide-out awning. Again, you can go down a size if you are low on space.

Protect Your RV Slide-Out

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.

Note: It's important that the slide-topper sits at as steep an angle as possible so that any rainwater will drain immediately. Any water that sits in the awning can stretch out the fabric permanently and warp it out of shape.

Protect your RV slide-out from debris and keep moisture out of your siding with this slide-topper awning. Prevents water damage and mildew. Made for slide-outs that measure up to 6'7" from edge to edge. Includes all necessary components.


Having a slide-out cover makes getting ready on travel day so much easier. No more climbing on the roof and brushing off leaves and water.


Received this 7' Lippert Solera Slide-Topper very quickly from etrailer. It came in a very strong tube with no shipping damage. My room measured 74" which was right on the border between a 6 1/2 and 7 Foot Topper. I went with the 7 foot and am happy with the additional coverage. I put it on by myself in about an hour and everything needed was included. This is a great improvement to our trailer.


Definitely watch the video on installation for some good pointers. A friend helped me install this, it took us a couple of hours but we took our time and wanted to make sure everything was sealed and done right. Great Saturday afternoon project though! I installed it on a 2018 KZ Escape 18' trailer for the dinette slide.


Mailing tube missing one end! Ends of slide topper paint missing! Had to sand and repaint!


Instructions were great Went in fast Works well


We installed this slide topper a year ago and are very happy with it. It came with all the hardware and was mostly a 1 person install with a little help from my wife for the final step. It’s a nice value and good addition to our trailer. My wife made a removable canvas cover for it that protects the vinyl when the trailer is in storage.

A year later, still pleased with topper. Looks and works great Should be on every slide.


The fit was perfect, and quality of the awning was first class. The installation instructions and video made the installation easy.
Great customer support.



It’s been a year since I installed the slide out awning. After dozens of nights camping it still looks great and performed without a hitch. Great product.


I ordered one size too long by mistake but it all worked out as it still fit with an overhang on the sides. Mounted easy and is working great so far.



Working great, no sag and wearing well. My RV is in the woods and the awning is out all the time.


A+++ in my book thanks for all your help


This unit arrived with no damage to the shipping container. Some small scuffs were on the hardware, which to me indicates this was from the factory as all packaging was intacted. Each of the three slide toppers I received had small metal shavings throughout the unit. These were inside the internal packaging which indicates to me that this was from the factory.


I had one of these on another trailer and liked it. Making brackets to mount on my rpod took some time but worked out OK.


Excellent product, excellent customer service. I have ordered several products from etrailer always a great experience. I will continue to use etrailer for all my rv needs. The slide topper was just as expected, fast shipping easy to install and works great.


Everything was good all hardware seems to be here and good instructions only one problem I ordered the wrong color but I will live with my mistake

  • Adding Tension To Solera Slide Out Toppers
    Thanks for the great question. Not knowing how far either side has slipped I would remove all tension for the arm and start over at zero tension. To add tension to your Solera RV Slide-Out Awning - 6'7" Wide - 48" Projection - White # LCV000163285 you need to detach the arm from the extension rod. Then spin the torsion arm 14 times. Clockwise for the idler head. Counter clockwise for the drive head. I will link a couple install guides to help you reconnect everything. You can jump to...

  • How to Add Tension to Solera Slide-Topper
    When installing/adjusting the Solera RV Slide-Out Awning # LCV000163285 tension is applied by rotating the awning roller 14 times. This should apply the needed spring tension so that the fabric doesn't billow in the wind or leave enough slack that it sags when collecting some rain water. Also make sure that you have at least a slight decline from the awning rail to the end of the fabric so that water can flow off the awning.

  • Does Solera Slide Topper Come with Everything Needed to Install on RV
    Yes, the Solera 7' Slider (Slide-Topper) # LCV000163285 that you referenced does come with everything needed to install. It comes with the brackets that attach the arm to the slide out as well as the rail that the awning attaches to on the RV.

  • How is Tension Set with Solera Slide Topper
    The tension for the Solera slide toppers is set by the amount of winds that the roller has before it's installed. I would recommend (if you are really careful) taking a couple winds out of yours and then reconnecting it and see if that gives you the tension you want. The recommended amount of winds is 12 to 16 for reference.

  • Will Hardware Included With Solera RV Slide-Out Awning Protrude Through Trailer Wall
    There are two different length screws used to drill into your trailer when installing the Solera RV Slide-Out Awning # LCV000163285. The screws used to secure the awning rail to the trailer are 1" long, and the screws used to install the bracket to the slide out are 1 1/4" long. When I contacted Lippert about the potential of the screws protruding inside of the trailer they had not heard of any issues regarding screw length, and were confident that following the installation instructions...

  • Which Direction Does Awning Roller Need to Turn When Winding for Install
    When winding awning rollers like the Solera RV Slide Out Awning part # LCV000163285 you wind them towards the RV. So like if the roller was on the ground the direction you'd roll the tube would be the direction that would roll the tube towards the body of the RV. This puts tension in the roller in the direction that allows the fabric to be held tight when the awning is out and then will roll itself back up as the arms close. You'll want to roll the tube between 12 and 16 times to get...

  • Is There A Way To Reduce Sag In A Slide-Out Awning
    There are a few things you can try to tighten up your awning, but the tensioner will not have a manual adjuster, unfortunately. First, I suggest checking all your bolts and or screws to make sure they are all this tight. If they have loosened over time, it can cause some droopage. Next, you can pull the awning off and let it unwind. This sounds highly counterintuitive, but it will then allow you to roll it back up. The tension may have loosened as well and this can sometimes tighten...

  • Solera Slide Out Topper Not Extending Past 6 Inches
    I spoke with the manufacturer and they recommended removing the tension pins and trying to roll up and unroll the topper by hand. To do that you'll just need to uninstall the Solera topper you have, like # LCV000163285, and if releasing it fixes the tension issue you can reinstall it again. If for some reason it does not fix the issue you might just have a bad topper and should go through your warranty while you have it. I've attached the installation instructions to help with this process.

  • Which Way Do You Roll A Solera Slide Topper To Add Or Remove Tension
    If you were trying to add tension to your Solera slide out awning # LCV000163285 you would need to roll the tube away from the trailer. Since there's two sides with different orientations it's a bit clearer to just say away from the trailer would add more tension, whereas towards the trailer would release the tension.

On page 6 and step 11 is a description of releasing the awning tension. I have also included a link to a video of the install instructions produced by Lippert.

  • Tension Setting Solera RV Slide-Out Awning
    Tension can be adjusted to loosen your Solera RV Slide-Out Awning, # LCV000163285 if you choose to. However, you are probably just fine and you want tension to hold the fabric tightly so as to not sag. Yes, there will become a point when too much restriction against an RV slide will be an issue, but I don't think you will reach that point from this topper.

  • How Many Times Should Solera Slide Topper Awning Roll Be Wound for Install
    Did you have have the awning roller wound too tight when you initially installed it? At the time of installation the awning roller should be wound 12-16 rotations to put sufficient tension on the springs. Sounds like you may have yours wound too tight! You'll want to remove your awning so that you can unwind it and rewind it the correct amount of times.
