Retrax One retractable bed cover
So I picked up a Retrax One. From the reviews I did this seemed to be the best one since I could lock it at any length on my truck bed and the drum it retracted into had the lowest space taken up in the truck bed. I went with the poly series and not aluminum because it seemed as though it held up better in the south Texas sun and heat and didn’t fade, scratch or dent as easily either. I had it for a week and love it and even saw an increase in MPG on my road trip to Arkansas. Went through flooding storms with no leaking into the bed too.
After spending a week in Arkansas, I was packing up my truck bed and noticed a crack near the tailgate part of the bed cover. It had some weird staining around it too that looked like some kind of chemical got on it and cause it to breakdown but I never put anything on it. Needless to say it was cracked and now leaking in that spot.
I called retrax the next morning and they already have a new one being shipped under the warranty. I asked if this was common and if I should upgrade to the aluminum one and they assured me it was due to a freak occurrence and these poly series last a long time.
If it cracks again I’ll upgrade to the aluminum. Retrax was great to work with and I really love the bed cover still.
