Lippert Components, Inc., reports positive interest in its new RV aftermarket slide-out sealing systems known as the Solera Slide-Out Sleeve and Solera Slide Topper.
RV dealers who have tested the products are finding that the Solera Slide-Out Sleeve and Slide Topper are virtually maintenance free cures for leaky slide-outs, and they are easy to install, said Andy Murray, LCI vice president of sales.
“The best part about these products is that they can be added as an option at any time to any RV on the market today,” Murray explained.
“We encourage dealers to ask their OEMs to add it to the list of options available on their product lines. We believe that their customers will thank them.”
“Most RV manufacturers only cover adjustments and sealants on slide-outs for the first 30 to 90 days of ownership. The Solera Slide-Out Sleeve and Slide Topper continually protect the roof and sealant on the slide-out box from the sun, water and winter conditions,” added Murray.
The Solera Slide-Out Sleeve attaches to both the slide room and the outside wall of the RV, creating a complete seal around the entire slide room. Dust, smoke, leaves, bugs, and debris are blocked by the sleeve against entering the interior of the RV-even when the slide room is retracted back into the RV.
Murray said the Solera Slide-Out Sleeve has also been praised by customers for its ease of use and superiority to other solutions. More and more dealers are choosing the Solera Slide-Out Sleeve as an installation option, and are asking OEMs to install Solera Slide-Out Sleeves on their product lines, he noted.
Murray explained why the Solera Slide Topper is also gaining popularity, “We feel the Solera Slide Topper is a great fit for those looking to save costs over conventional slide awnings, save on weight, and have a more streamlined and updated look when the slide room is in the travel position.”
The Solera Slide-Out Sleeve or Slide Topper offers these features:
- No mechanical parts to break
- Velcro strapping eliminates wind issues found with awning toppers
- Slide-out Sleeve helps prevent leaves, dust, bugs, and debris from entering the slide-out
- Water no longer pools on top of the slide-out
- No springs to bend or break
- Velcro strapping installs easily
- A cost effective alternative to awning toppers
- Ice slides right off
- Clean, fresh look
“Today more than ever, OEMs are upgrading the exterior appearance of their units with items such as full paint, upgraded graphics or automotive style frameless windows,” said Murray.
“The Solera Slide-Out Sleeve and Slide Topper are just such quality upgrades. It also is one of those rare cases where you can achieve an upgraded look for your RV while reducing cost and weight and improving performance.”
