FAQ — waterproof tonneau cover


What's the Best Tonneau Cover That's Waterproof and Secure for a 2017 GMC Canyon?

GMC Owner: I wanted to touch base with you. Got a 2017 GMC Canyon Duramax long bed and I don't really know about if there's advantages of the different tonneau covers. But I've got a GMC bedliner that's kind of a plastic one and there's a cover over the edge of the bed as well as the tailgate. I'm sure that probably has an impact on the installation or whatever needs to happen for the tonneau cover.

Peter: Yeah.

GMC Owner: So why don't you give the low down...here's what I'm looking for in terms of a tonneau cover. I want something that's going to, as you mentioned, keep things dry. But I also want something that's not going to be sliceable with a knife. Basically, what's the best waterproof cover that is also good on security?

Peter: So, you're going to want a hardcover.

GMC Owner: Yeah. Because my friends and I, if we go golfing, there'd be four bags of golf clubs when we go to the restaurant or something like that afterwards. And the last thing we need is expensive clubs disappearing.

Peter: Of course, yeah. So, by far the most popular is going to be the BAKFlip MX4. We sell more of those than anything. It's super well reviewed, it's very water resistant. When your tailgate is locked, the cover is locked and secure. And it sits flush inside the bedrail so it's got that really low-profile appearance. That's a really good option. And it's a tri fold, but it can fold completely.

GMC Owner: Is it complicated to install? I think I watched a video on that last night, if it's the same one.

Peter: It's real straight forward. Probably takes 30 minutes. Just clamp the rails on, get the drain tubes in and you're done. It's real simple.

GMC Owner: Okay. So, in order to order that, what do? Just contact you on the phone or is that how we do it?

Peter: Yeah, just give me a call and then we'll get it in for shipping and get it on the way.

GMC Owner: All right, and is this a discounted price? Or is this what?

Peter: It is. I think it's the lowest price anywhere by an authorized dealer. I mean, you can just Google it and see. But I'm beating most places by at least $100. So just give me a call when you're ready.
