I'm thinking of getting the tri-fold hard tonneau. Can anyone with one of these types of covers on your truck tell me how waterproof they are? Could I for example put some luggage in the bed and close the tonneau cover and drive to the airport in the rain?

-Thanks

The 3-fold unit is supposedly a re-branded BakFlip. I had one. If installed and adjusted correctly they are essentially waterproof (and pretty easy to install yourself). An excellent product. I just called the dealer today and had them cancel the cover and mudflaps from my build because I heard they would cause delays. I'm having the dealer order them and keep them in parts so I can pick them up when I come to get the truck. I will D.I.Y. them myself. It's not that hard. It beats waiting another month or two to get my build.

Glad to hear they are waterproof, because I had read a couple of other people complain that they are not. Not sure what brand of cover they were referring too. Yea, I've seen a lot of chatter about accessories causing delays, I would do the same thing! Have fun with your new Maverick when you get it!

Question, do you know what model trifold cover you will get? I am curious as to what would be the best one to get for the Maverick.

They show this tonneau cover at accessories.ford.com. A couple of weeks ago I took a screenshot of it and sent it to my dealer. I asked if this is the exact to know cover I'll be getting with my order. He forwarded the question along to Ford. If I get an answer to my question I'll post it here which I presume is "yes”.

Just get an aftermarket cover. There’s several options that will be available for the Maverick and are cheaper. They all have different weight ratings and levels of security plus they aren’t that hard to install yourself. If installed correctly, a trifold will protect the bed from rain. Some of them also have drain tubes to route the rain out.


You can talk to a customer rep on there to see what would work best for you.

Just got my loaded maverick last week and had to drive it through really hard rain a couple of days ago. I checked the bed when I got home in the garage and notice just a little water by the tailgate as you would expect. Had same thing on premium cover on my F150. Love my stock hard cover.

they are but they have to be installed properly. I got the MX4 and had to re adjust it (put a flashlight in the bed at night, could see light). Also the plastic side molding going down the top of the edges of the bed have a notch near the back window. leaking slightly. When the weather gets warmer again i'll take the cover and rails of and put some molding in them.
