Motorcycles count!I did read your excellent reviews, but to be totally honest, after watching 30 videos and reading a bunch of reviews, I forgot that your review was on the Lomax. I certainly would have added it to my short list of reasons for my decision. I went through them again. Really well done.
My cover is set to ship on 12/2. Looking forward to it.
FYI... in my past, I have been on many a forum. Mostly motorcycles, some cars. This forum seems to be up there in content and personalities of its members. I'm pleased to have found it.
Phineas...50+ cars and trucks huh? Now I have to go count, but I don't think I'll quite catch up with you. I might have 40. If I were to add motorcycles, I could probably beat you.
Sorry, I didn't have that problem. In fact, the quality of the finish is first-rate in my experience.Anyone have issues with LoMax paint? I just received my cover and both of the rail are nicked up just from being in the shipping box. The packaging it was shipped in is fine and the rest of it looks ok. The seller is going to replaced, but now I'm a little concerned about the quality of the paint.
links are a good thing. No need to apologize.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.
It is not 100% the same cover. It was designed slightly differently by a different team (one that probably includes the input of Honda engineers). But the parts that are the same are directly Extang parts. And I would put the sameness at 85 to 90%........... 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.
I was looking at them and they have three option for the top, black matte, diamondback and black urethane . I guess I get the diamondback but what is the difference in the urethane and matte?For anyone interested, here is why I ordered the Lomax:
I was very interested in the Peragon, and multiple retractable versions, but didn't like the rails on the side or not being able to remove the entire thing. I also didn't like the strap that was always going to be in the way on multiple models.
Hope it lives up to my research.
Matte is textured flat black, quite close to the tops of the truck bed rails. Urethane black is brand new, the website makes it look more aggressively textured and more glossy.I was looking at them and they have three option for the top, black matte, diamondback and black urethane .

2017 Ridgeline over-the-bed rack system for bikesIm very eager to see how you are getting a rail system installed over your bakFlip!
I have this tonneau cover on my 2017 RT. It retails for about 700. I don't recommend it. In the 2 years since I've had small glued on parts keep falling off. At lwast count, I'd collected about 5-6 of these pieces that have fallen off. Yesterday , the corner glued on bumper fell off. The locking mechanism handle has a part that has broken off. I am not hard on things but many parts of this cover are simply glued on and fall off. I am looking to replace it with a Lear brand which is more expensive but the manufacture looks sturdier or at least smarter. Who just glues bits and pieces on something that will bake in the sun and be expected to be moved frequently? It still works but I would expected much more longevity for the investment.Yes Honda makes one. They aren't cheap though, they msrp for like a grand at your local dealers.
But you can get one from a place like College hills Honda or Bernardi Honda and use the online parts store for around 699 plus shipping and tax.
I have the oem and find it to be fine. But there are some out there who really like the non-oem ones they have.
Link below is for Bernardi. College hills Honda is more expensive now(they want 860ish)
The Honda Bed Tonneau Cover is attractive, rugged, and gives your Ridgeline a whole new look. It provides security for anything you stow in the bed. The dual-action tailgate is fully functional with the hard tonneau cover in place.www.bernardiparts.com

No drilling required on OEM cover, just change out the upper fore and aft cargo tie down brackets and attach the cover.Hi, I just purchased a weathertech bed cover for mt 2019 RTL. $495.00, Installs without drilling any holes. Very good quality and easy to install. Check out their website.a friend of mine has the same cover for two years and is very happy with it.
Sorry for delay in responding, busy lately. Bought off Honda eStore and dealer installed for $880. Cover was about $835 I think. Install is straight forward, only replacing the four cargo tie downs and attaching the cover; I was too busy during holidays to DIY it.Are the replacement brackets much different than the originals?
May I ask what it cost?
Great info - thanks.Oh, and the replacement brackets have extended bar for latches to attach to just below and parallel to bed rails.
