Bak Flip Extang or Undercover - No Leaks!
 
Are any of these tri fold covers waterproof? I just ordered an Undercover and then came on here to look for reviews (yes, I know I did it backwards) and have discovered that the Undercover apparently leaks badly. I want the cover to be waterproof is possible. Do the Bak Flips and Extangs leak?

My Extang solid fold lets a drip through now and then but nothing that would affect items underneath.

Honestly, I've never seen a Tonneau cover that's totally leak-proof under all conditions. The only way to make a tonneau cover totally leakproof would be to seal the folding seams and edges with silicone sealant (which would make it unusable ;) ). Just accept that most modern tonnneau covers will keep out 99 percent of water under most conditions. My new Extang Solid-fold is pretty water-secure and I've only seen a few drops enter when hitting the seams with the high-pressure hose at the car wash. I think it's fair that's all I can ask of it when it's designed to fit so many vehicles, is easy to open, and easy to take off. :thumbsup:

I'm a truck driver in Detroit and extang is a big customer of ours, I've talked to the guys there in the past about their covers and they say that they put a lot of effort into making their covers as water tight as possible. That's just from talking to the shipping & receiving guys. I got one for my sons 09 f150 and he is very impressed with the fit and quality.

Thanks fellas. I think I am going to cancel the order for the Undercover based on some reviews I have seen and go with the extang.

I'm a little late to the thread, but Undercover leaking? The Undercover COVERS your rails and tailgate and has a seal at the bulkhead. It's almost impossible for it to leak at all except at the bulkhead. The seal at the bulkhead works fine.

I went through 2 Solid Folds before settling on a BAKFlip G2. Both Solid Folds had very leaky hinges. The BAKFlip's hinges are water tight. I get a tiny bit of water at the bulkhead, but that is due to my drop-in liner.

Stage4,

The Undercover I am referring to is their tri-fold model. Apparently they just started making it awhile back and it leaks pretty badly. I ended up buying an Undercover solid tonneau that is painted to match my truck. Should be here in a few days.

OK, you were referring to the Undercover Flex, not the Undercover Classic, SE, or LUX.
