Slide out covers

Just a question about slide covers we have a 2018 Montana 3730FL. The dealer recommends black for the covers our previous 5th wheel had white. We will be wintering in Tx and summers in Wisconsin. Just wondering if anyone has a preference with the color.

We summer in Kansas and winter in New Mexico and Arizona. On our old rig we had beige and were happy with them. Our new rig has one very large slide and heard from another owner of the same model that they were having problems with such a large topper so we haven't added them to this rig as yet. I would need to be strongly convinced of the advantages of black since it seems, on the surface, do be a heat attracter.

We have the 3731FL and toppers are black.
Honestly with the air gap between roof and topper I don’t think it will make much difference.
ps we love our FL!

Within the next month, I'm going to push the magic 'BUY' button and order white toppers since gray to match the roof isn't available from the usual sources. IMO, the black on a totally hot calm day only adds to inside heat. My truck has a black tonneau and it feels like you could boil water under it on a 90* day - and yes, I do understand there is little or no circulation. Main advantage I see with black is that it wont show dirt as easily.

I have black and live in AZ. They are open on both ends so air circulation is not a proplem.

And after a couple of years, Black hold up better re appearance.
