Retrax Cover for a 2019 Ford F-250


F-250 Owner: I had gotten an email from you a couple weeks ago about a Retrax cover, but that might be with stake pockets cut out. I don't want that. I want the standard one

Peter: Okay. Retrax Pro MX for an eight foot bed?

F-350 Owner: Yep, it's for a 2019 F-350. You had a program running on that. Is that still in effect?

Peter: Our sale ended, but let me see what I can do for you though. Give me just a second here. So 2019 F-350, eight foot bed... Okay, still good. Okay yeah, I can do it for close to the quoted sale price. It's free shipping, and there's no sales tax if you're ordering from outside of Arizona.

F-350 Owner: There was a rebate, is that no longer available?

Peter: That ended as well, unfortunately.

F-350 Owner: When will you have any programs running again like that?

Peter: I don't know. When it comes to manufacturer rebates, we actually don't get informed until about 48 hours before.

F-350 Owner: Would you know the amount of that framing, or any of the material associated with that Retrax, how high does it sit above the bedrail on the truck when it's closed?

Peter: It doesn't. It sits flush inside the bedrail.

F-350 Owner: Beautiful, perfect that's important, because I have some clearance issues. And would you know the dimensions of the unit when it is fully opened? I've never had one of these things, and I have another issue now with the fuel tank.

Peter: Okay, so the canister is about 11 inches, by 11 inches, by the width of the bed.

F-350 Owner: 11 inches, by 11 inches. And does that open fully into it, or is there some portion of the cover that has to remain unopened?

Peter: Yeah, there's just a very little bit that will still stay in the rails. Yes.

F-350 Owner: There is something, okay. Do you know how much of that in inches?

Peter: I don't, I'm sorry.

F-350 Owner: This is important. Is there somebody I can call at Retrax about this?

Peter: Yeah, they have techs over there that might have the exact dimensions for your application. They might be able to help you with that.

F-350 Owner: Okay, I'm going to give them a call, see if I can get that information. And I'll get back to you sometime this afternoon. Is there an issue with these things leaking rain water? I'm hearing, reading a lot of different reviews on it, as far as being water tight.

Peter: Yeah, in my experience when there's water issues, they didn't install it correctly. It's designed to be extremely water resistant, with drain channels that lead to drain tubes, that keep the water out of the bed. So you shouldn't have issue with that.

F-350 Owner: I should not. Okay, good enough. I'll give them a holler and get back with you then.

Peter: Okay, sounds good.
