Bed cover.

Anyone have suggestions on a bed cover? I like the look of the Retrax but wonder if I will be able to pull my atv up against the canister. Also thinking about a painted fiber glass but don't want my bed caps to be covered. So what I'm looking for is a very low profile cover that doesn't hide my bed caps. Any pics would be appreciated.

I got the RollNLock and I really like it. The fit and finish is great and the canister looks pretty sturdy so if you put your atv against it you shouldnt damage it as long as you arent slamming into it

Retrax is Sweet!

I had one on my F250 Shortbed. I had traded it for a Fiberglass Shell. I plan on getting another one...

My Honda Rincon would NOT Fit inside with the tailgate shut. I had to leave it Open.

Honestly, my ATV would not fit without it anyway. I had some Oversize tires on it...

i am a walking screaming hell. a thing of torture to behold. this vivisection splits my soul. a thing of torture to behold... yeah!

I have the BakFlip G2 cover. Kinda sounds like what you are looking for. Its water tight, durable, folds and sits low profile between the bed rail caps. The whole thing folds up against the back window so you could fit an ATV no problem.

I went with an Advantage hardtop tonneau. It's nice because it folds into three sections like the backflip, but there are only 4 locking handles that hold it to the bed rails, so it can be removed in seconds for full bed utility. It is also the only one I found that will custom make them to size to fit a truck with a tool box.
