Will a Retrax XR With Wide Rails Look Better on My 2018 Chevy Silverado Than Standard Rails?
Silverado Owner: Yeah, hi. I'm trying to buy a Retrax bed cover from you guys.Shaun: Okay, did you want the aluminum version, or which one are you looking at?
Silverado Owner: The aluminum one, I have the part number, but I got two different part numbers, and I want to know which is the best one.Shaun: What do you got man?
Silverado Owner: I got the 8461 and the 8471.Shaun: Okay, so the 8461 is going to be the Retrax Pro MX, without the stake pocket holes.
Silverado Owner: Okay that's a bit weird. Oh you know what, it is the 460 I'm sorry, not the 461. That's got the cut out pockets right, the 460?Shaun: Okay, yeah 460, the 460 does, and what did you say 471?
Silverado Owner: 471. YesShaun: Yeah 471. It has the wide rails.
Silverado Owner: Oh, I see, but it doesn't have the cut out pockets?Shaun: No, they are meant to cover the whole rail, so that way then, it takes away where its cut half way down the rail. But let me tell you about something real quick. What do you use your truck for?
Silverado Owner: I don't use it much, the truck most of the time its parked, but you know whenever I go somewhere everything should stay locked in place, you know what I mean?Shaun: Well, let me ask you man. Do you use kayaks or surfboards or fishing poles or anything?
Silverado Owner: I don't, I don't use any of that stuff, I don't think I need cut out pockets.Shaun: Well no. I was going to tell you that, you know, you're looking at the Retrax Pro, and I'm guessing the matte black version? But they have a new one that is the Retrax XR, and that one has different rails where it has a T slot in it. Right now they are giving away Yakima load bars. Um, I don't know if you have heard of Yakima?
Silverado Owner: You know what, I've seen them in pictures. Like, yeah. I think I know what you are talking about. But that price is a lot more, right?Shaun: No, no, that's why I'm telling you because right now they are giving those away. That's $550 value, and the cover is only $100 more than the MX. They both come with a lifetime warranty.
Silverado Owner: Now I got three choices.Shaun: Yeah, see, you thought I was trying to sell you, but I was looking out for you.
Silverado Owner: I didn't know about the wide rails. You think it would look better than the other ones?Shaun: I think the covers are awesome I'll tell you that much, but as far as the wide rails go, yeah it would make it look more flush, more finished.
Silverado Owner: There we go, okay ... if it covers the whole thing, yes. What about price-wise, they are pretty much the same, right?Shaun: What's the truck details?
Silverado Owner: It's a 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 with a short bedShaun: It's just an extra 100 bucks for the wide rails.
Silverado Owner: Oh man that sounds pretty good.Shaun: Yes sir, we actually order directly from them in North Dakota. They will build your cover to order, and they'll ship it out to you within 48 to 72 hours.
Silverado Owner: Okay, so you recommend the wide rails, right, they are better, they look better?Shaun: Yeah, I think between that one and the standard rails they do look better because they fill more of your truck bed rails out. It looks better. It covers the stake pocket hole entirely. If you are never going to use it, you don't need it.
Silverado Owner: There we go. Okay. Well to order it, do I have to do it online, or how do I do this?Shaun: You can call me or I can send you an order right now that will include a link that you can click whenever you are ready to purchase.
Silverado Owner: Go ahead and do that for me.Shaun: All right man. It's on its way. Should you need anything else, let us know, or if you need any help let me know too.

How Water Resistant is the RetraxPRO for a Ford F-150?
Ford F-150 Owner: I was looking at some tonneau covers, and I've had tonneau covers, I've had hard fiberglass painted, I've had a Roll-N-Lock. Now I have a Ford F-150 and I'm looking at the RetraxPRO XR, but I have a couple of questions. I know tonneau covers aren't completely waterproof, aside from the solid fiberglass ones that actually kind of curved almost over the sides of the truck, and the tailgate. How waterproof, reality-wise, is the RetraxPRO?Shawn: The Retrax is going to be better than any of your folding covers. And yes, obviously a one-piece cover is going to be the most water-resistant. But yeah, the Retrax has drain tubes. As long as you have the drain tubes installed you should be good to go. The one piece covers can be kind of a pain.
Ford F-150 Owner: Okay. And I know with my Roll-N-Lock, I used to get small leaves in there. About once every six months I'd to unscrew the cover top and go in there and vacuum out any leaves and stuff. Is the RetraxPRO better at keeping stuff out of the box?Shawn: I've not heard of anything like that happening.
Ford F-150 Owner: Okay. Now, I know the Retrax is not spring loaded, it just rolls back and forth. You manually move it, correct?Shawn: Correct.
Ford F-150 Owner: Okay. Whereas the Truck Covers USA and the Roll-N-Lock are spring-loaded?Shawn: Right.

What's the Best Retrax Cover for a 2019 Ford F-150?
F-150 Owner: I'd inquired about a tonneau cover online and received a few emails back. So I thought I'd give a call and see if I can't get fit with the right product for my truck.
Peter: Okay, what truck is it for?
F-150 Owner: I've got a 2019 Ford F-150 Crew Cab, or Super Crew.Peter: Okay.
F-150 Owner: Originally the quote I was looking for a Retrax cover. I'm curious about the Pro. Because I know the Pro is a little heavier duty and it's a different material. And I can tell you in the past I've had different trucks, about three different trucks, with the BAKFlip, the tri fold or whatever it is, and I like them. But I like the idea of a slider a little better.
Peter: Right, okay.
F-150 Owner: I like the cover being open without losing my vision.Peter: Right. The Retral Pro MX is much more heavy duty. It's made of aluminum. It's the only retractable out there that has a lifetime warranty. I mean it really will last the lifetime of the truck. It can hold like 500 pounds on top, it's just very heavy duty. I can get you that one with free shipping, and there's no sales tax if you're ordering from outside of Arizona.
F-150 Owner: Yeah, that's a really good deal.
F-150 Owner: Okay. So, I think for the price, it's probably the way to go. Okay, so what do you need from me to order? Do you do it online, or do you want to do it over the phone?
Peter: Yeah I can take care of it right now real quick, and then get it going.
F-150 Owner: There's a gloss one and matte one, are there different?
Peter: Yeah, I would recommend the matte.
F-150 Owner: That's what I wanted, I don't want the gloss. Would this be shipped out Monday?
Peter: Monday or Tuesday at the latest, yeah. It'll be FedEx Ground.
F-150 Owner: Okay. Let's go ahead and do it
