Tonneau covers?

I was looking into toppers for the F250 I have on order, when I ran across some folding tonneau covers, both semi-rigid, and rigid. Some advertise you can drive with them partially folded, which would be nice with my gooseneck camper. The Torzatop, and Bakflip have my attention at the moment. Does anybody have experience or opinions on these, or similar covers? Thanks, Pete

G2Bak Flip

I had the G2 Bak flip on my F150.The cover kept the bed dry but was sometimes hard to get the spring latches to latch at the back of the cover.When you folded the cover up you have to use a bungee cord to hold it down.If you fold the cover all the way forward it will be folded up almost against the back of the cab and held propped up by two rods.I went with a Bak retractable on the 250.

I've run an Extang full tilt for the last 10 years. I'm looking at the Diamondback covers now to add some storage area.

Finally get a chance to log some seat time in my truck. Starting to realize that getting a cover for bed will add some usefulness for the kind I've activity I do. Went into the local Buff's and the man there steered me towards the Extang Trifecta. I have to admit, it looks like a pretty cool deal. Almost completely self contained, and thus easily to remove.

Does anyone have first hand experience? If not, and you are using something is the same price range, let me know as well.
Thanks,
