Question Minnie Plus Trailer 5th Wheel- Where to Mount-Bolt a Slide Out Cover - Topper ?

I just got a 2019 (they seem to have jumped the gun calendar wise ) Winnebago Minnie PLUS 5th wheel 25RKS. This trailer is build on the same platform as the Winnebago Plus Travel Trailer I believe (the Minnie Plus line is the one that comes in all sorts of brilliant exterior colors). I need to install a roll-out cover for the slide out but have no idea where to drill holes / bolt it onto the trailer's side wall above the slideout ... and neither did 2 dealers I visited. Certainly wasn't going to let them do it!!!! I don't want to damage the side walls of the trailer and have NOT been able to get any assistance from Winnebago factory - customer support. Any thoughts? Thanks.

Well, we put one on our 2201ds which is smaller then your 5th wheel but the dealer that sold us our trailer told an outright lie and said there was no room for an awning over the slide out.....we just went up as high as we could under the gutter.....I think the instructions said 3 inches up from the top of the slide....we had a little under 3 inches and it works fine......there is a youtube video that we watched before we installed ours and it showed 3 inches up from the top of the slide for the trailer part of the awning. here is the link to the youtube video we watched before installing our slide out awning......Good luck!
