    I looked at those before getting an RDJ hard trifold via Amazon. With cash back, it was about $430 or so. Not even sure where the Syneticusa ones are made, but I would guess it's like the RDJ, us designed and made in China. Sorry I don't know much about them.

    Thanks.
    I contacted them and they only communicate by email. They blame the virus that they can't talk to me on the phone. I can't even find anyone who has one. No real reviews just their stuff and it shows almost nothing.
    I think I am going to give a hard pass to this one and spend the extra money for a known manufacturer with a warranty.

    Has anyone ever purchased this cover? It seems to have decent reviews since the last post.

    I decided not to chance it. Way to sketchy. I got the Pace Edwards Switchblade and am very happy with it. Only paid $850.

    Very minimal leakage. It all depended how hard it rained and if it was sitting level or tilted. I was actually surprised how well it did.

    Buy once cry once is the motto here and it's correct.
    Don't buy some cheap knockoff or go with cheap parts. You will regret it.
    I went with the Pace Edwards Switchblade and am happy I spent the extra money. It's a quality unit that works as advertised.

    It is highly water resistant but none of the retractable units can be 100% waterproof and most other covers also are not 100% waterproof either. The few possible drips I get in a corner is nothing and it works great.
    That goes back to the question is a frog's ass watertight?
