Best Tonneau cover??

Our platinum should be here in the next few weeks so we are ordering stuff for when it gets here.

I'm looking for a low profile tonneau cover, Prefer a hard one that retracts so its easy to open or close. Are these things water proof or does rain still get in the bed?

Thanks for your help!

I have the Bak Flip F1. Its fiberglass so its resistant to hail. I live in ks. It folds easily so you can use your bed and it keeps water out.

I went with the Roll N Lock. It retracts out of the way and can lock it. Only water that gets in is by the tailgate and not into the main bed area. The front of the unit has drain hoses mounted to it.

Bak industries roll-x, locking rolling hard cover with no canister in the bed! No tracks to worry about keeping clean, no water leaking at tail gate like on the roll-n-lock. And it is super low profile.

Stay away from Roll n Lock and other roll up tonneaus. Mine freezes up in the winter and is next to impossible to open up. The lock mechanism jams up with snow and ice and then the snow melt from the tonneau gets into the roll up mechanism and freezes that so you can only move the cover a few inches. Also, automatic carwashes with the driers will lift the tonneau cover's canister's lid and throw it up against your back window. I used tek screws to keep that from happening again. Just glad it didn't break my rear window. If I had to do it again, I'd get a Bak Flip tonneau.

Love my pace edwards electric, I just bought the truck and the previous owner had it installed. I've always wanted one but didn't like the price tag but I got lucky.

Put an Extang Encore on in December. Pretty happy with it. Opens from the front or rear and drain rails work well. Bed stays loaded with equipment almost constantly and stays almost completely dry unless I'm sitting in a downpour. Even then there is so little that its insignificant. Also use it to haul all the wife's luggage and kiddie stuff on vacations. Cover is lockable and can be keyed the same as your truck key. Even came with a seal for the lower tailgate to keep out roadspray. Removes very easily and folds up to the front of the bed if your out and your wife comes across something she just can't live without (deck furniture, shelves, and any other crap deemed necessary). Had two fiberglass tonneau shells on other trucks and they were nice but a real pain to take off and store and if something gets up front you have to crawl up and get it. Good luck. Tons of options out there.

Had a Roll n lock but the vinyl came apart after about 6 years. My Roll n lock did start to hang up after a couple of years
Had a retrax that held up well and never had an issue with it, i was afraid the material it was made out of would not hold up to texas heat but it did. Retrax has sealed bearing and never had an issue with it. I liked that you can lock it in any position that you want.
I currently have Trucks cover usa and like it. Never had it freeze up on me even in sub zero temps. Trucks Cover USA is aluminum and has held up well. It has specific locking points within the tracks.
