We need to replace two white A&E slide out toppers on our 2007 MH.

Both slides extend 29".

One supplier custom cuts both width and length for $350.

Another custom cuts only width and length is standard 49" for $190.

Same material for both. The $160 lower cost is attractive but I am not confident about winding up the extra 20" on the roller (49-29=20).

Has anyone done this? Does it work okay? What suppliers do you recommend?

Many Thanks....

If length is all that is different, you can cut and seam the end that attached to the roller. All that is needed is cut to the size of old system and seam that end and slide onto the roller.

Have you taken the old one out and see how long it really is.

Slide topper Fabric is NOT cut to your 29 inch length. The OEM slide Topper Fabric is cut for ALL possible lengths. When ordering a NEW complete slide topper, you only have to know the width, not the length. Length is for the out, not for front to rear. You always have excess that you have to roll up. Your springs do not care about the length of the fabric or how much you roll up before you reach your 29 inch width. Get the fabric that is 20 inches longer. When I cut replacement Slide Fabric, I cut the exact same width and Length as the OLD. IF no old fabric, then I still will cut for width and add that 20 or so inches to the length. Doug

I ended up ordering from RV Awnings Mart. They carry 16 mil material, standard 48" width. They only sell 3 lengths so I just ordered longer than I need and will cut prior to installation. Thanks to Doug above I am no longer concerned about winding up the extra 20" width.

Stone Vos has a pretty good explanation of the length issue.

The toppers on my Monaco coach all had a scalloped flap that hung down on the front edge when extended so the length of the topper fabric was important.
