I watched a video on it on YouTube, by memory the guy had some trouble with it freezing, it does take up some considerable room when rolled up, you need to drill holes in the bed for water drainage, and it has some sealing issues at the tailgate.Anybody have tried the RetraxPRO up north. Wonder the freezing weather how it reacts to the cold? Looks really nice and that's what I would like on my next Ridgeline.
Sorry for the link, it's only there so that others know what model I'm talking about. Hope I don't bust any rules.
I have a 2017 RTL-E and the cover is a BakFkip MX4. I bought it on-line from Truck Hero. They were offering free shipping, a rebate and a military discount of $75 or $100. It was easy-peasy, but the rebate took months. Install and fitting took a little time. Just returned from a trip and forgot I had put a paper bag and cardboard box in the bed. Dry as a bone! A littleDo you know which BakFlip model you have, and where did you buy it? I think $700 is a pretty low price.
The first RL I ever drove - a used one I was thinking of buying 8-9 years ago - had a BakFlip and it seemed like a quality item. (Drove it late morning, thought about it, called early afternoon....and it was already sold, lol.)
I now have a G2 Ridgeline. Is yours a G1 or G2?
Just bought a 2018 RTL-E. Can anyone recommend a bed cover? I’m interested in the panel kind - hard and fold open one panel at a time. Does Honda offer one or do I go through an 3 party?
Well my dealer didn’t return my calls after saying they’d sell the Honda cover at their cost - so I called some other dealers. I asked if any could come close to Bernaldi’s $680 price (which doesn’t include over an additional $200 of shipping). One offered $750 which I thought was great since msrp is right at $1k. So I took the offer & installed this afternoon. Only took about 30 minutes - very easy install. Hope I like using but my initial feeling is I like it a lot.
interestingly my dealer called about an hour after I finished with their “dealer cost” number of $800. Tax to be added. Disappointed since the dealer I bought the top from said they still made money at their $750 offer.

I would go with the Honda Bed Cover and get a tailgate lock! Honda makes a tailgate lock that requires a key to lock and unlock. There are some out there that can be installed to auto lock and unlock with your other doors as well.Just bought a 2018 RTL-E. Can anyone recommend a bed cover?

I also got mine and installed it. Pretty easy. It might have been a tad bit cold for the adhesive to stick well enough, but overall pretty nice cover. I love how you can take it out without even removing one bolt.I got the lomax today and got it installed in about an hour, probably could be done in half that. Search the community for lomax, and you will see a thread called lomax install tips, very helpful.
Love how it looks, very good quality.
I just got an Xceed Saturday and will mount it later this week. It looked very good in the dealer showroom........... ps: I’ve read both that the OEM cover is and is not the Extang solid cover. It sure looks like the same cover to me. I noticed on their website they’ve added another solid folding cover for roughly the same price called Xceed. Reviews look good and it looks like a great choice also. Might be a notch better than the OEM version.
Yep, I had a solid folding on my F150 and it was good. However with this roll up design it doesnt cover the rear window when its completely opened up.
