Bakflip Alternative: The Renegade Cover
There are many popular tonneau covers on the market, and with so many options to choose from, it can be difficult to choose the correct heavy-duty tonneau cover for your vehicle. The Bakflip F1 Tonneau Cover is a consumer favorite, but does it hold up to other brands? Today, we’ll compare the Bakflip F1 with the alternative Renegade Heavy-Duty Tonneau Cover to determine which is the best for your needs. We will consider weight-bearing capacity, construction, functionality, and cost.
Weight-Bearing Tonneau Cover
When it comes to a weight bearing tonneau cover, these two beds aren’t even close. The Bakflip F1 Tonneau Cover can hold 400 pounds on top, while the Renegade Heavy-Duty Tonneau Cover can hold up to 2,000 pounds. Just as you wouldn’t trust a Subaru Baja with your cargo, don’t skimp on your tonneau cover. The Renegade cover is heavy duty, durable, and bears a load five times heavier than its competitor.
Heavy-Duty Tonneau Cover
Both the Bakfip F1 and Renegade Cover are American made, boasting quality construction and materials. The F1 panels are made of fiberglass reinforced polymer, making it lightweight and heat resistant. In contrast, the Renegade Cover uses military grade aluminum to ensure strength and durability. Because of this, the Renegade Cover is heavier, but makes up for it with it’s impressive load-bearing construction.
Functionality: Tonneau Cover Accessories
Both models are a tri-fold tonneau cover, folding with ease. You can drive with the Bakflip in the two-thirds or fully upright position, freeing up the cargo bed. The only accessories offered from Bakflip are two racks that go on top of the cover. The Renegade Cover must be driven fully down, but redeems itself with it’s versatile L-track system. You can use the L-tracks found on the cover to tie down your load securely. Additionally, Renegade offers various products such as the Renegade Racks or Rip Tide Water System, proving itself superior in versatility.
Affordable Tonneau Cover
Here lies another defining feature of the competitors. The Bakflip F1 Tonneau Cover ranges from $990 to $1,300, while the Renegade Cover comes in from $2,295 to $2,795. The Bakflip cover, designed for smaller loads with less versatility, takes the cake. When it comes to a functional, weight-bearing tonneau cover with multiple accessories, you get what you pay for.
In the end, both are quality products. The Renegade Cover beats the Bakflip Tonneau Cover in load-bearing capacity, construction, and tonneau cover accessory options, and the price reflects that.
