    F1 BakFlip Up Date

    F1 BakFlip - fiberglass?
    Purchased in 2014 - $900.00
    3 year warranty
    4 years later - holds and leaks water. - cable bars release fall off.
    Last winter could barely unfold panels that were holding frozen water.
    Fail

    Called Customer Service - way out of warranty told.
    Could do Friend and Family 50% off.
    Pass - Only 3 yr warranty again.

    To be fair my truck sits outside rain or shine.

    Ended up with a 1 owner Limited Lifetime warranty from Truxedo LowPro.

    Researching finds that most covers are being made by one company.

    Had to get something quick do to Travel Softball starting up this week.

    Wife and Daughter likes the folding, now rolling, of the cover so they can pack tight our luggage and softball gear.... in our 5'7 truck bed with Ram Box

    Thanks for the report. I have wondered how those covers worked in cold country. I have a rollup cover and it works great. My 2000 Dodge had one from new until 2014 when I sold it and it was outside all the time and rollup cover stillwas good. At minus 20 F it rolled up and never cracked. All I did to it was give it a wipe with 303 a few times a year. The biggest problem was spring and fall when water could collect a bit on it and then freeze and if you didn't slide it off before you left it could fly off as a sheet at 50 mph or so
