Is The BAKFlip MX4 Waterproof When it's on The Truck?

Chevy Silverado Owner: I wanted to get a tonneau cover for my truck.

Peter: Okay. What truck is it for?

Chevy Silverado Owner: It's a 2005 Chevy Silverado, has the shorter bed. I think it's like a five foot eight bed, or five foot five.

Peter: Which cover were you talking about?

Chevy Silverado Owner: I've been looking online all over the place and I really like the BAKFlip MX4.

Peter: Yes, that's very popular. Let me double check they have it for your truck. Yes, and they do. It's free shipping and there's no sales tax if you're ordering from outside of Arizona.

Chevy Silverado Owner: Oh okay, cool. What's the availability on it, like if I want to go ahead and do it? When can I get it by?

Peter: Our shipping is typically about five days.

Chevy Silverado Owner: Five days? Okay. I've been looking around and that's probably the best price I've heard so far. Is there any sales or anything coming up on that or is that pretty much the best?

Peter: That is a sale price.

Chevy Silverado Owner: That is the sale price? When is the sale final?

Peter: I think the end of the day on Friday, this coming Friday.

Chevy Silverado Owner: The day on Friday? Okay. Let me run it by the misses first.

Peter: I got you. No problem.

Chevy Silverado Owner: We're going to go on vacation soon and I wanted to have something to cover the truck with. With this cover, I mean have you seen this cover? Have you used this cover before?

Peter: Oh yeah, absolutely.

Chevy Silverado Owner: Is the BAKFlip MX4 pretty much waterproof when it's on the truck?

Peter: It's designed to be extremely water resistant. It's got drain channels that lead to drain tubes that keep the water out of the bed. No Tonneau cover is 100% waterproof, per se. You might get a drip or two, but water won't be pooled in the bed or anything like that.

Chevy Silverado Owner: Right, that's kind of what I was looking to do. That and with this one, I've heard with some of these Tonneau covers you have to open them like to close the bed, like to close the tailgate? With this one, do you have to close, when I'm going to close the tailgate do I have to open the cover to close the tailgate?

Peter: You don't. You can slam the tailgate while the cover's down. It's designed that way.

Chevy Silverado Owner: That's what I was looking for too. Let me write that down. Thanks for your help, Peter. I appreciate it.
