Default Do You Wax Your Folding Tonneau Cover?

Specifically the hard folding style (I have a Bak Flip F1). Just curious, this is my first and getting ready to wax my truck. I suppose it would not hurt but wonder if it is worth the extra effort and time.

I have a Peragon aluminum folding cover and I do wax it. I remember the instructions that came with it saying you could wax it so I figured why not? Protection and shine is always good.

How do you like your paragon cover. I really like how those look. How are they in winter?

I like it a lot. Love the look and operation of it. Super easy to use and I like have the option of fully removing it from the truck within a couple minutes. It does leak a little bit in the corners but I'm sure if I really cared about it being water proof I could fix that no problem. The rest of it is completely water tight. It didn't snow too much here this year so I can't really comment on the snow load on it or anything. The one downside is that if you have to open the cover in the rain or snow all the water sitting on the cover ends up in your bed.

Overall I would definitely recommend it to anyone. I've had tons of guys ask me where I got it because they like it so much.

Thanks for the info. I really like how they look and operate but that's a good point about opening in the rain or snow.

Well as far as the bakflip goes its 100% water tight and no water sits anywhere on it it has a grove under the cover that has a channel leading to a drain tube. And it when folded up only loses 3 inches of bed space and it also comes off in less then 2 mins

I wondered about that. I guess I'll go ahead and give it a shot, it was not cheap.

I'd go ahead and wax it, always good to have extra protection on things!

For our hard folding tonneau cover we recommend 303's Aerospace Protectant.
