What you said......OEM here also......BTW.......RoyalFellow, welcome to the ROC......The train of thought in this forum is that no single tonneau is 100% waterproof. You will always have some leakage.
If any mfgr promises as such, keep your hands on your wallet.
That said, the variety of tonneaus are plentiful. Myself, I have the Honda OEM tonneau. Happy with it since I ordered it with my RL. Is another brand better? Maybe but why worry about it.
I think yours is damaged becaus all others with the oem get small leaks on the sides and back.I purchased the Honda OEM hard ($1700.00)cover for my 2009 and it leaks like a sieve. The leak is right where it folds.
I'm looking for any aftermarket cover that will keep my bed contents dry.
If anyone wants to buy my Honda hard tonneau cover, I'll give them a real good price!!
Welcome to the ROC:cheerleader: I have the Retrax which I installed myself and sealed around on installation It still has some minor leaks but they all do My personal opinion the OEM is a over priced piece of crap:act035: All the after market covers are better than the OEM and cost less Do a search for tonneau and make your choice from there Good luck and enjoy your ride:act035:I just bought a 2008 RLS Ridgeline. Are Ridgeline Tonneaus covers waterproof? Could you recommend a good but not expensive one?
