At freeway speeds you can look in the rearview and see the panels raise up and down as wind pushes on them.I think this is bc they are all independent panels.

its a shame.
The Peragon doesn't work for me, but I saw a while back that the owner was on here and they came across as they were trying to turn their customer service around. Give them a call and see if they can help you. You might find yourself luck (and if you do, let us know).

you guys should give the extang solid fold a try. Doesn't have the flush mount look because of sitting on top of the bed rails but you also don't have to mess around with drainage channels and drain hose on the inside of the bed and I think it is more reliably water tight or resistant because of that. I really like my extang thus far.

It sounds like all of these flip / fold covers leak more than the rollup covers - and that would make sense, due to the extra seams / gaps.

This is what I have now and you're absolutely right. My bed (and contents) are dry no matter what the weather now.

Just a question for the Bakflip owners. I was thinking of getting one, but may reconsider now.

My bed rail is dead on level, would this affect the way water drains into the tubes up front?

Seems like just a few are having water coming in. I've ordered a Bak Flip F1 and I'm not worried in the least . I'm installing it next weekend and I'll post on how watertight it is (or isn't)

Mine always leaked no matter what. At the tailgate and on both sides of the bed dead smack in the middle of the rails. It didn't pour in but it leaked enough that I couldn't keep anything in there that wasn't supposed to get wet.

My new extang revolution keeps the bed completely dry.

4.1 inches of rain in the last 36 hours and not a drop in the bed. I have noticed the two nuts on the front panel have backed out a little, so they will now get drilled and a safety wired, like we do on aircraft bolts.

Mine leaks just like yours.

I took it back to the dealer (Capit in Richmond BC) to take a look. They put a hose on it and tried to figure it out, but no luck.

Kind of a bummer.

Mine leaked for the first time but I was traveling and in Houston during a heavy down pour a few nights ago. Not happy and may look at trying to fix it or other options.
