Roll-n-lock bed cover ?'s

Anyone have one of these? I have found one used - will inspect before buying - BUT -- I need to know if it keeps the items in the bed DRY! I plan on adding the tailgate seal and already have the rails that plug the holes on the bed rails -- so would this keep stuff in my bed dry when driving thru a good ole Oklahoma storm?

We are looking at a cover to use while not towing - but easily removable when needing to hook up the 5er... this one seems to be nice looking and good - just want you guy's input on your experience with how dry it keeps the bed

Thanks guys!

Yah, I'm wondering if there is a seal I could use to seal it up during install

We'll see what others have to say - maybe they've been able to seal it up
