How Heavy are the Flips in the Tri-Fold of the BAKFlip MX4?
GMC Owner: I saw your advertisement on the Internet and I got a price quote. I'm looking for a bed cover for my wife's pickup and I was wondering if you can help me out.Peter: Yeah, definitely. What truck is it for?
GMC Owner: It's a 2018 GMC pickup.Peter: Okay.
GMC Owner: 5'9" or 5'8" bed.Peter: Okay. The short one. Got It. Was there a particular model you were looking at?
GMC Owner: Well, yeah, I'm looking at two here. The BAKflip MX4 and they're RetraxPRO MX.Peter: Okay, great. Yeah, the MX4 is my favorite folding cover and the RetraxPRO MX is the best retractable.
GMC Owner: Your pricing is about $300 cheaper than, what I've been seeing elsewhere.Peter: Yeah. We're known for our pricing here.
GMC Owner: Yeah. Let me ask you about that and that MX4 BAKflip is that, I mean that was pretty sturdy bed cover.
Peter: Absolutely. Yeah. It can hold like 400 pounds on top. It's really heavy-duty.
GMC Owner: Okay, okay. Well, let me ask you a question here on this. I mean because I really like the Retrax, but the price is obviously higher. The only thing I worry about with the BAKflip is my wife being able to flip it. I think she can flip the first one, but then when it comes to the second one. How heavy are those, flips?Peter: I mean, I honestly, I don't think she'll have a problem. I have many customers who buy these for their wives trucks and never hear about it being an issue. I think she'd be okay with the Retrax, too. Just remember with a short bed that the canister, that the cover retract into is going to take up about 10 inches by 10 inches by the width of the bed.
GMC Owner: Oh, that's right. So, you lose that bed space then.Peter: Right.
GMC Owner: All right. Okay. Well, that's okay. That's more appealing than to the BAKflip. Okay. Well, Peter, can I call you back here and say in an hour.Peter: Yeah, no problem.
