Tonneau Cover

I'm in the market for a retractable style tonneau cover. Anybody have any recommendations? They seem to range in price from around $700-$2000. Is there that big of a difference in quality?

My brother's got a retractable style that's pretty good but I'm not sure on the brand. I've got an agricover roll up style that I'm very happy with too. What are your reasons for wanting a retractable vs. a roll up style? Price on the roll up will be cheaper.

I had one of these on my Dodge Dakota. Roll-N-Lock M-Series it was ok but for the money I will never buy one again.

I like the looks of them better, and I like the added security. I've had roll-ups, snap ups, and a few others in the past, and I didn't like any of them. A buddy of mine has one and loves it, but it was on the truck when he got it and it doesn't have any manufacturer markings on it. Bfrank, what didn't you like about it?

I just didn't suit my needs and after I shelled out the cash it pissed me off. If you want a cover this would do a nice job. Be careful of the maintenance. It's a vinyl cover and needs TLC also the track needs to be greased or it will begin to stick. In the winter time if there was a little bit of water on the cover and you roll it up and let it sit if that water froze you would not be able to open the cover. That got me one time but no big deal.

I'm just not a tonneau kinda guy.

I had a Roll-N-Lock, what a POS looked good ,covered the bed, rolled up nice , but everytime it rained all my stuff would get wet that was sitting near the tailgate it's a porr design IMHO I went with the hard fiberglass lid and now it's collecting dust in the garage. It doesn't leave you alot of room to carry oversized loads when it's on

I didn't have that problem. Maybe you had a bad install job?
