Tonneau Cover suggestions

I've decided that I need a tonneau cover for the truck. The last cover I had was for an 88 Chevy 1500 stepside. The cover was made by Downey Products, the fit was awesome and I liked the snap design, however I think they are out of business. I want a cover that will match the contours of the bed rails and I want the tonneau to cover the rails it attaches to completely. Anyone have any suggestions and/or pics. Thanks in advance.

I have a snap cover made by a company called Berlin. Mine was even custom made because of the stacks and it only cost around $220. I don't know if thats the kind you like but heres a pic...

I was actually just searching them. That looks great. Does it go all the way out to the edge of the bed and follow the bed contour? You wouldn't happen to have a pic. from the back and of the snap system? If not, it's no big deal. Thanks for the help.

If they are the loop and lock style, I don't really like those. I never had any problems with the snap style I had.

Man, I really like the looks of that. That is how my Downey cover fit. I really appreciate you going out in the cold and getting me some pics. Where did you get yours at?
