If you RV where there is a lot of wind, you might be asking, “How do I keep my RV slide topper from flapping?”

The thing I’m most worried about when it comes to slide toppers flapping in the wind is that they might rip if the wind gets a little too crazy. If you hang out in Florida when it’s hurricane season, you never know what kind of wind you’ll come up against.

You can keep your RV slide topper from flapping by using a paracord and some bungee straps.

This video below from Unlikely Adventurers is less than a minute and shows you how to set it up.

If you want to stop the noise and keep your slide toppers from ripping in the wind, this is a good solution.

The good news is that it doesn’t hurt your slide topper to do this. If you leave them flopping in the wind though, that could be a problem, so I would give this a try if I were you.
