After getting ripped off with very expensive aluminum tri-fold, I went with a very inexpensive Truxedo vinyl roll up. After a year and half in a ton of rain (Southern downpours), it does not leak, fits snug, looks good, and does the job. I could go through four of these before touching the price of the "fancy" job that I learned my lesson with. I do not live in or frequent high crime areas, so vandalism and theft are not much of a consideration for me. I am sure that there are some excellent expensive designs, maybe I will try another one someday. This simple, less is more, cover is best for now.

Todd take a look at Roll N Lock


Those you can open to any position and it stays in place. I wanted one of those, but ended up with an auxiliary tank that is above bed rails.......so can't use one now.

Iíve got the Truxedo Low Pro myself. Super easy install and looks great. Functions as I need. My truck is garaged, so itís main purpose is to keep my hitch covered and bed items out of sight when not connected to the trailer. If I had to pick one negative, itís that car washes seem to be rubbing on spot near a corner causing a 1Ē faded/scratched area. No big deal.

I have a long bed with the Access rollup cover. Most folding covers for a long bed seem to stack higher than I like. I have had friends with the folding covers and they are great until they start to leak between the panels. I've never had water get through the Access unless I didn't seal it tight when rolling it out.

I have the advantage Sure fit roll up snap on cover, I got this 6 years ago because it was the cheapest and I wanted something when money was a little tighter, I have had to replace most of the snaps (no big deal). I loved this so much when I ripped the cover the other month I went out and spent my own money to buy a second one, can not give a better recommendation than that. Plus it is Made in the USA all for $230.

My personal favorite is Peragon. I like that Peragon covers don’t interfere with the truck’s stake pockets so that you can install a variety of accessories and it is compatible with most aftermarket products such as rail caps, ladder racks, fifth wheel hitches etc. Also Bakflip is a popular choice, many of my friends prefer it because of the low weight. https://tonneaucovershub.com/peragon...tonneau-cover/

Peragon has a 90 day full money back guarantee, including return shipping, so I pulled the trigger on one a little over 90 days go... and itís still on my truck.

Itís been great. As waterproof as my trifold fabric tonneau, no rattles or squeaks from the aluminum slats, and very easy to remove and install.

I run 6Ē of bed rail clearance, and the Peragon sits 1/2Ē above the rails and reduces the open width of the bed a few inches. My Goose Box pin box at 90 degrees gets too close for comfort, so I remove the entire assembly when I tow. With their Platinum install kit, it literally takes about 5 minutes to remove or install the whole thing.

For a premium metal retractable design, the price canít be beat either, itís like half the price of the competition since they only sell direct to the public.

Have used Access brand cover on two trucks. It is a simple roll up that seals to the side rail with Velcro. Not in the way at all when rolled up. Also, it is the only one Iíve found that will work with a cross bed tool box.

Iíll second this. Great cover. Iíll also second the car wash faded spot. Very happy with my Low Pro.
