|UPDATE: Almost one year later (6/26/16), my disappointment continues with the quality of construction of this Bakflip VP. Now, the small panel that connects to the front of the bed (doesn't 'flip') is sagging in the middle. I have never placed anything on the cover at all. When it rains, water pools there and irritates me to no end. I have had to tighten screws that hold the rubber bumpers on the bottom of the cover because they were not applied to the correct positions. (I wish I could upload pictures to better show what I am talking about). I will never purchase another product from Bakflip. Disappointing quality and care for the amount of money paid. |
Original review after two months of owning and installing the Bakflip VP:
Appearance: This cover looks very sharp...from a distance. Despite the video claiming that the folds come out of the rubber flange when heat is applied (i.e. sunlight, blow dryer), when it is opened again, the folds came back and do not look as clean. I wonder what will happen during the winter...
Ease of Installation: I own a 2015 Nissan Frontier and I have to say, this was seriously easy to install. No problems at all.
Price/Value: This is difficult to comment on as most hard top tonneau covers are in the same price range; however I feel that $750 is quite overpriced for what is essentially aluminum tubing, vinyl skin, nuts and bolts, and rubber.
Quality: My initial thoughts were really impressed with the Bakflip VP. But it is the attention to the quality of the parts (nuts, bolts, hardware, tubes, etc.). I've had this for just under a month and the two flat black powdercoated bolts that attach the cover to the front of the bed are beginning to rust. Furthermore, the tubing for the drainage is not what is shown in either the manual or the installation video (the video shows a clear, thick-walled tube and I received a cheap, hard plastic corrugated tube.
Overall: The look is really nice, the install was a cinch; however the price, in my opinion, is quite extreme for thing that are starting to rust after just under a month of installation. I live in Western New York and the weather hasn't been that extreme. Perhaps in a more arid climate, the rusting wouldn't be an issue.
Thanks for reading.

|Looks great and installation was easy. Seems to be as watertight as it is going to get as it does let a little in at the tailgate but hoping a tailgate seal will fix most of that. Bolts in front are already starting to oxidize. Wish they had drilled the holes before putting on the vinyl cover as there was aluminum shavings in both holes that had to be cleaned out or they would have punched through the vinyl cover if I hadn't cleaned the holes out. There are creases in the rubber seal along the side where the sections fold that are not smoothing out so I hope the seal holds up to the opening/closing of the sections. Overall it looks good as long as it holds up for the money spent.|
