Those look good. Deffinetely would help when pulling in the slides when it is raining or snowing.

I have Zipdee slide covers on my '98. They do a pretty good job of keep water or leaves off of the slide roof. But in a strong wind I find that they do flap some.
Curious to see how these work out.

I paid $ 1,450.00 with freight. You could probably do better. I ordered through a dealer. Also, fabric was an expensive option. Most come in vinyl.

Forest;
I haven't had the chance yet to evaluate them under windy conditions. If any problems, I will post.
Thanks, Ray

Was that the cost per slide?

They look really good. You made a great choice match well. Not sure why Newell dies not place slide awnings or covers over their slides.

Doug;
When I asked that question of Newell, I was told they had problems in the past with the old style covers that had to be locked. Apparently people forgot to unlock them and did damage to the coach, awning, or both. They said they experimented with a "wiper" that worked for a while but not very well. One would think that with today's offerings it would be a no brainer to include protection on the new coaches, but who are we to question Newell?
