Exactly. The other night, my son-in-law asked if we could drive to Sears warehouse to pick up a freezer he just bought. I asked if he knew the dimensions and he was't sure. I said, no problem. If we need to take the cover off and lay it down on the bed or strap it the side, I could do it over there by removing 4 10mm bolts and lift off. As it turned out, all I needed was to flip the rear flap over onto the front panel. The freezer fit perfectly and the gate closed ok.dboz said:I have not had a situation yet where I was unable to figure out how to do it. Great pics.
That would be the case in very few cases if you got the Retrax. You just roll it out of the way and you only lose about nine inches of your truck bed.WhiteRTLnav said:Don't get me wrong, I think a tonneau cover is a great idea. I would love to get one, but it's situations like this that make me not want one as I would have to either remove it before I pick up something large, or find somewhere to store it if I forget to take it off beforehand.
That playscape was about a hundred pounds. Truthfully, I wish Honda would put a load rating on the cover. The sturdiness is decieving. It seems rigid enough to handle quiet a bit. It is supported the whole lenght by the rails that are bolted to the sides.kdogofjtown said:Just a quick question-- how much did that weigh?
Tex's Ridge said:How about this. Picked up a playscape for the grandson. Could not fit it under the cover, so tied it down on the cover.
The nice thing about the soft trifold tonneau covers, is they remove in a minute without tools and you could even pop it in the back seat area.I still can't decide if I want a tonneau cover or not. If I get one, I will most likely get the OEM Honda cover.
Still can't decide. . .
