Slideout canopy, are they worth it for occasional use?

The slideout "topper" is a debris shield, so probably yes if you camp under trees, where leaves & limbs are present.  Perhaps not if your campsites are mostly open.
The topper saves you from having to climb up and brush debris from the slide roof before retracting the slide. Whether that saves enough effort to justify the cost is up to you.

Also it depends on where you camp.

If you are out in the west where 100 degrees is normal then you absolutely need  canopy covers. Makes a BIG difference in cooling.
