Well, my dog has become too big to ride around in the back seat now, and besides, the hair problem is getting to me (stuck in the seats). So now he has to ride in the back (and he really doesn't like being shut up under the cover in the dark:looney.
It is a couple of years old. Just painted it black (base/clear) last Sept. Has a small paint chip on the rear corner on the edge. Comes with the lift struts, brackets, and quick-detach hinges. You can get the manufacturers specs on it here: http://www.checkerpro.com/
I don't think anyone would want to get into shipping this thing, so I guess if anyone would be interested, we'd have to meet up.
If you want to trade, I'd atleast have to see some pics before we could meet to finalize the deal, and if you are interested in buying it, I would have to get enough in order to purchase a soft cover. I'm not trying to make alot of money off it. I just want to be able to get a soft cover. I'm in Western NC, 28139. Just let me know. Thanks.
How about this..... I discussed it with my "financial advisor" and we agreed that after eyeballing some classified ads for a few other Checkmates @ $400-$475 used (though not all painted), it would be beneficial to my purpose to sell mine and buy a cover new. So, the cover I just looked at online is going to run me right at $375. Now of course, if I have to meet someone from out of state, we may negotiate a small "gas fee".
This is the quote I just recieved from Checkmate for my cover brand new:
"The total package price, which includes the bed cover, installation
hardware, crating, shipping, and handling depends on the delivery
destination zip code, but is usually between $624.00 and $699.00. Thank
I'd like to think I'm offering a pretty good deal, especially considering the quote for a new one doesn't include paint.
