My name is Pete Bergee of Rhino Linings of Eau Clair & Rhino Linings of Chippewa Falls, Wi. I became a Rhino Linings Dealership because I couldn't afford Line-X. At this point I am so frustrated that I am revealing facts of being a Rhino Dealer: Their product costs the dealer more money than all other bed liners, including Line-X. I learned this from a Line-X dealer himself when I went there, posed as a customer & noticed receipts on the counter which I took & shoved into my pocket. I also witnessed Line-X spray equipment that was superior to mine.
So I Learned first hand that Line-X has much better technology & lower cost to their dealers, thats why I must apply a thinner coating than them. If I used as much spray on formula as Line-X, I'd make no profit at all! Because of this I've had several returned bed liners on basic pick up trucks that needed warranty work done. Since I cannot afford to do this free these upset customers wanted refunds & for me to remove the leftover coating remaining on the bed at my cost.
I always say the same thing: I am not responsible for this, the manufacturer is, call them. But they never cover that cost like they promised me. I've been sued 6 times so far, lost valuable truck dealer clients like my closest Ford dealer, Chevy plus GMC, Dodge, Toyota, Nissan & most other truck dealers & owners won't use my Eau Claire or Chippewa Falls shops. I cannot lower my price & must use as little as possible in order to pay my bills. I started using other products instead of Rhino which seem better. I've use Crown Polymers.
I'm now trying to mix that stuff in & it's thicker but I'm not sure if Crown Polymers should be used on a truck bed. As customers few seem to care what's used because as a dealer they think its all Rhino. I'm just trying to make my business succeed. I also tried Vortex which also is much better than but they require buying their gun. Then I tried Granitex made by which is really for floors so it didn't work. Since that guy, Glen the owner of Vortex informed me that many Rhino dealers use Vortex & just call it Rhino, I did try. So the only thing Rhino Linings is is a big name. Coming right from the horse's mouth, RHINO SUCKS!
