Tonopro

This is the one I have and love it! Plus it's pretty cheap. I use to have a hard cover that was like 500 lbs and a pain to put on and remove. This one is good, light and cheap. I can install it or take it off in about 30 secs by myself.

The folds back covers are nice because they don't cost as much and are easier to manage compared to the full one piece covers.

Personally, I like the roll back covers and have been entertaining the idea if getting a Pace Edwards when the time is right, i.e. have the money to spare.

I have a Roll-n-Lock tonneau cover. The only other cover I was considering was the Bak Industries Bak Flip. I went with the Roll-n-Lock because I personally thought it would be more secure as I have the tailgate step. I was thinking that if a thief were to pop the tailgate step up and use a coat hanger or something similar that they could pull the wire that latches the cover, getting into the bed. I am very pleased with my Roll-n-Lock. It did require some slight modifications in order to fit with the tailgate step. I had to cut that rippled plastic panel on the tailgate in order to get the end cap mounted. Also, if you live where there is a lot of freezing and thawing, you may have issues getting the Roll-n-Lock to retract. Kind of have to work it back and forth to get it open and closed.

It really depends what you want your tonneau cover for. The Roll-n-Lock and Bak Flip are probably the best for taking up the least amount of space in the bed of the truck with the Roll-n-Lock being more secure in m opinion.

I have a Truxedo roll up cover and love it! I bought this one because it was cheap and I wasn't sure I would like it but I couldn't do with out it now. Keeps everything dry and out from under prying eyes. Most people won't break into something if they can't see whats in it.

I have an "access limited" and I have no complaints but I probably should have just saved my money and gotten a hard roll up cover like pace edwards or jackrabbit, I looked at the hard tri fold covers but I have a habit of buying something unexpectedly and those tri folds I would have to take off and store somewhere in my truck. Problem is I never seem to have room for anything in my truck. let alone something that size. I have heard good things about the bak-flip ones, and their pricing is great.

Please collect and message me Shell, Rotella oil cap codes aka "my miles matter" I'm trying to save up for a hat or something.

I have a "Fold-A-Cover" folding hard cover. It folds in 4 sections. You can also just open the front section (like a tool box). Nice but does leak some water.

I have the full one-piece hard fiberglass cover by ARE. It is a nice cover and looks good but I hate it for functionality. It is very heavy and removing/installing it is a pain in the a$$. I have a truck camper, so most of the summer it just sits outside (off the truck). It came with my used truck. I will probably sell it and buy one of the tri-folds. Anything that keeps my stuff dry and is easy to completely remove by ONE person.

I have the Extang Trifecta Solidfold. I originally had the soft one but then upgraded to the hard one when that one got destroyed in a wind storm. It's pricey ($800) but unbelievably solid. My sister, niece, girlfriend and myself sat on top of it on lawn chairs during the 4th of july firework show and had the beat seat in the house. It latches to the inside on your bed rails which keeps your stuff secured when locking your tailgate. It weighs about 40 pounds making install/removal a one man operation if need be.
