My newest Cabela's catalog came a couple of days ago and I had time tonight to browse through it. In the "auto and atv" section they advertise a tonneau cover by Truxedo. It is a rollup type that apparently has locking capability. The cost is $419 for a full-size longbed. The stock number is DE-52-1035. Their website is: http://www.cabelas.com.

aerodynamics?

I have always felt that a full camper shell provided better aerodynamics when pulling a trailer - kind of keeps the airflow up and over. But nothing other than gut hunch and seat of the pants comparisons to back that up. It felt to me like there was less drag on the trailer with the shell on, when I was pulling into a headwind. For this reason, as well as storage space, I will probably put a full shell on my new truck even though I prefer the looks of the hard tonneau covers.

I do know that studies have shown that tonneau covers are the only thing that gives any reduction in drag on a bare truck (with no trailer), and that was only about 5%.
