    Good day po mga boss. I am planning to buy a pickup before the end of the month. And I need a bed cover which is water/leak proof.

    I just want to ask po if meron na po ba may experiemce with topflip or other trifold bed covers that promised a 100% water/leak proof? Totoo po ba na 100% leak proof sila?

    If ever po what is another alternative bed cover that offers 100% water/leak proof. yung affordable po sana than topup or carryboy sport lid?

    Salamat po mga boss..

    No such thing as a 100% leak proof tonneau cover.
    Single piece will be less prone to water entry than trifolds.
    I'm a firm believer of "you get what you pay for".

    magkano, 'kamo?

    if one does not really need a pick-up's utilitiness,
    some folks get by handsomely, by simply purchasing the SUV version of the pick-up.
    heh heh.

    I checked with a dealer and it's around 60k inclusive of installation.

    Was tempted to get a pickup rather than an SUV but the cost difference is minimal already if I add a cover... that will last for at best 5 years (?).

    Sa SUV na lang ako as I really don't need a bed.

    my dad buys pick ups one after another. nag simula sa fuego napalitan ng navara tapos ngayon hilux. lahat naka carry boy tonneau cover. correct na hindi sila water proof. for a short amount it may keep your things relatively dry pero papasok padin tubig. ang tanda ko last na bili niya was 44 o 46k ata for the hilux. tapos may kailangan cleaning ng mechanism every so often kasi napapasukan ng mga debri at tubig. naputilan na kami ng return spring noon dahil kinalawang.

Topflip and other tri-fold bed covers. Are they really leak proof?
