How To Select The Right Awning Size For Slideout


I want to buy awnings for my sliders. Should I be using the exact roof measurements or the end to end measurements on the slder flange sealsblack Thanks


Expert Reply:

When choosing the slider you want to measure the outside front of box width including the flange. Then you need to select a slider that extends a minimum of 2-1/2 inches beyond each side of the box width.

For example, the Black Solera Slider # LCV000165061 is 156 inches wide and is designed to fit a box that measures 146 to 151-3/4 inches.

I have attached a link to the awnings we offer. If you want to send me the measurement of your box or boxes and what color you want I can make some recommendations that will work for you.

Does your slide-out measure 268" wide? If so, we don't have any toppers quite that large. If that measurement is referring to something else just let me know. 67877

I have exactly 3" from the top of my slide to install the rail for a slide topper awning. Will this work? Can you recommend a awning that will work for a slide that is 112 3/4" flange to flange? 77954

Reply from Chris R.

At minimum there needs to be 3" of clearance between the top of your slide-out and any existing components like a bracket or gutter for the Solera Slide-Toppers to install and operate. As long as you truly have 3" of space, it will work. For a 112-3/4" flange to flange measurement you'll want the Solera Solide-Topper Black # LCV000251461 or White # LCV000163292 . 63452

Going from largest to smallest on your camper, you'll need the Solera Topper # LCV000168109 (Black) or # LCV000163300 (White), # LCV000177334 (Black) or # LCV000163298 (White), and # LCV000165062 (Black) or # LCV000163287 (White). 59682

My box, flange to flange is 145 inches. It only extends 18 1/2 inches. What size topper do I need and will one that extends 50 inches work or be too big? 71858

Reply from Chris R.

In terms of width, the right Solera Slide Topper is part # LCV000177334 for Black or # LCV000163298 for White. Any fabric that's not actually extended out will just stay stored inside the channel, so there's not really a minimum length required. This will work just fine with your shorter box. There aren't any shorter slide toppers available. 58852

Our slide on a Outdoor RV is 137 absolute length flange to flange. Your Lippert Solera slide topper recommendation please. 71396

Reply from Chris R.

For your 137" wide slide the right Solera Topper is either the part # LCV000168328 in Black or part # LCV000139496 in White. I linked both options for you below. 58298

153 flange to flange and also 83 inches flang to flang what size toppers do i need 2020 forest river 36vbds 70913

Reply from Chris R.

Based on the measurements you provided you would need the Solera # LCV000168109 (Black) or # LCV000163300 (White) for your larger slide-out and the Solera # LCV000165062 (Black) or # LCV000163287 (White) for the smaller slide-out. 57920


I would like to buy a Solera slide topper. My slide, including the flanges trim on the box is 97 1/2. The box without the flat trim is 92. It sounds like the 8 foot 7 slide topper would be the correct one? The 8 foot, 1 wouldnt have any overhang. Is my thinking correct? 64465

Reply from Jason S.

For your slide topper, you will definitely want the overhang to keep water and debris out. We determine the correct size but measuring the slide including the flanges so you will want to go with the 97-1/2 inch measurement you gave. All that to say you are will want # LCV000168108 for a black topper or # LCV000163290 for a white topper. 54619
