Best Tonneau Cover

I would appreciate input on well-made tonneau covers that do not leak or leak very little. We have a Fold-A-Cover aluminum cover that leaks like a sieve no matter what I do to tweak it. It is also falling apart after 3 years. Is there a cover out there that does extremely well with leaking? We have a long bed with a spray-in bed liner. I know tonneau covers leak, but there has to be something better than ours.

I have a UnderCover Flex hard cover that I've been very happy with. I haven't seen any obvious leaks and never had any cargo showing signs of moisture exposure after a good storm or TV washing.

I do protect all the rubber seals/joints and panel surfaces with Aerospace 303, which IMO adds to longevity. My prior 2500HD's soft cover lasted 14 years with frequent "303" applications.

This is what I've had for the past 5 years and no leaks. Not too expensive either.

I have and am extremely happy with the "BakFlip" and had it for 5 years now and only get leaks when I wash my truck and blow the water under the seal. Very highly recommend and has awesome security and I can walk on it!!!! (don't do it often). Has 4 folds so not too much weight per fold and you can secure it up to have full access to the bed.

Check out the Truxedo LoPro QT. A vinyl cover I've been using for 3 years now and no problems. Will leak a little but not much to worry about. Good warranty too. Been more than pleased with this cover.

I have a pretty inexpensive Lund soft tonneau. I open it daily for work, plow snow in the winter with it, wash every few days and take it through car washes a lot and its never leaked a single drop.

I have a Bak Revolver X2 on my Sierra and would buy it 10 times again given the options available.

Mine is an Extang Trifecta. It's on it's second truck, about five years total and it looks like new; has never leaked a drop.

The only problem I've had is when the bed is loaded up full for a camping trip it can be a bit difficult to get at the spring clip.

I'm on my second pickup with a Truxedo Truxport soft tonneau. I like the look of the soft covers, and they roll easily out of the way if I'm hauling something larger. There's a little leakage around the edges, but IMHO not enough to cause any problems. They take the snow load well, too.

https://www.truxedo.com/p-36225-trux...bed-cover.html

My last truck was a '04 Silverado that I bought in '09, and it came with a Truxport cover; I don't know how old it was before that. I traded the truck in in '16 with the same cover, and even after 7+ years, the cover still looked and worked like new. So when I was looking for a tonneau for my current truck, I looked no further than Truxedo.
