The cover has been designed to ensure no water can penetrate the panels and hinges. The cover also seals nicely at the front end and the tailgate of the truck so no water can enter there, and water simply rolls off the front and rear of the cover with ease. The BAKFlip cover is “level with the bed” so should water ever gather on the cover and be pushed to the any of the edges of the cover, water will simply roll off the cover! Should water try to enter the bed from the sides, it has quite a challenge to make it to the bed.
First it has work itself under the side rubber (EPDM) seal. Should any droplets gather there…it would have to work itself over the lip of the mounting rail. Should it ever get that far, it will be automatically caught by the extruded side rail which acts like a small gutter. Water collected in the “gutter” of the side rail is quickly expelled through the tubes at the front of the truck. In all of our tests…it is VERY rare that water will ever make beyond the lip of the side rail, and if it does, it is only a couple of drops. However, even if these “couple of drops” make it to that point, they have no chance of getting into the bed as this water is caught by a secondary “gutter” that ensures your bed will remain dry!
There are 2 drain hoses (one on each side at the front of each mounting rail) to ensure the expedient and efficient expulsion of any water collected in the “extruded gutter” of the mounting rails! It is very rare that any water ever gets to the channel in the mounting rail, much less into the tube at the front of the truck
Absolutely not! Water runs along the inner track which acts as a “rain gutter” as well. This track is open ended at the back. This means that if the truck is parked up hill, water is collected in the inner track and drains right at the back edge of the tailgate and runs out of the back of the truck, leaving your cargo area dry. Water ever getting to this “channeled gutter is really rare under any circumstance!(read question above)
The BAKFlip has has superior weather resistance in all types of weather. This cover is designed to outlast your truck and it can handle all the Sun, Rain, Snow, Ice, Mother Nature can throw at it.
The cover overlaps the front edge and the tailgate. Under the cover at both ends, there is a high quality pressure seal that seals water and dust out.
