I want to withdraw any comment in which I said I was happy with the BakFlip G2. I am not happy with. It's completely fallen apart. While the panels are still in good condition, two of the locks have broken and the 3d has completely fallen off the the last panel section. I am very disappointed in this. I know have to use two hands to open the thing.

Wasn't too happy with my BakFlip VP. The rubber gasket seals were peeling off. Two email contacts to BakFlip customer support yielded no replies.

An added benefit I had never considered of a light colored fiberglass is everything under it in the bed stays cool. While under our black roll up it got so hot at times it was hard to touch and all the stuff under the roll up got super hot. Even at Lake Powell siting in the sun when the temp was over 100 degrees in the shade things stayed "relatively" cool.

Very happy so far with my BakFlip VP. Easy to install, good looking and virturally leak free. Had a Roll n Lock on my previous truck which looked great but was pricey and leaked more than the BakFlip.

I was told by Bakflip that they will not honor the warranty because I purchased it through Amazon, which is not an 'authorized' dealer. What BS is that? You manufactured the product and now you're not going to stand behind it?

While overall I am happy with the quality of my Xtang vinyl rollup it was assembled sloppy, (wrong gaskets in 2 places). The company was resistant to sending me the correct gasket and an email complaint about quality control went unanswered.
