I've got the North Mountain, and it's tight as a drum on the highway (130 miles today), with very little movement & no noise (windows closed though).
It'll probably need a slight bit of stretching by spring, I can feel a little less tension while snapping it shut ten days after installation, but it's still pretty tight.
So far I am satisfied with the purchase. The only dislike is that it flaps on high way speed. I haven't played around with the adjustment yet though. It puddles up when rain. I was hoping for increase in mpg but I see no difference.
I've had my North Mountain on for a few weeks now, and I'm really happy with it.
I took my RL to a touch-free wash today, and the only areas that leaked were up front, down through the gaps in the bed, this isn't the fault of the cover, it's just a result of Honda's design. I'll seal those in the warmer weather. Not a drop through the tailgate.
There is a little flapping/vibration (just visual, no noise, even with the rear slider open) so I'll adjust the tension in the spring as well.
I have noticed better gas mileage since I've had it on.
This thing installs easily, looks great, allows the trunk to open fully and allows full bed-height/width use.
I just saw that a neighbor bought a used RL, and it has the same cover on it.
I'll ask him how he likes it, but I'm pretty sure I know what the answer will be.
This is a great cover, and it's less that 1/2 the price of others.
I've got some 12" x 72" 3M vinyl carbon fiber look that I plan to put on the chrome section of the grill. Thinking that pulling the grill and emblem off will result in a better job; has anyone pulled their front grill off and is it a real pain?
I got the light bar mounted under the bumper. That part was relatively easy. It looks like running the switch wiring into the cab is going to be a challenge. I looked but could not find any grommets in the firewall. Where I could sneak the wires in. I did find a great place to mount the switch...
I bought a new 2019 RTL AWD a week and a half ago. Love it so far, but the headlights.....geez. Sometimes at night with the low beams, I find myself wondering if the lights are even switched on.
I've seen and read some of the headlight upgrade posts, but at the risk of sounding lazy, can...
