I got these for our police trucks. They work great and are easy to put on and take off. UnderCover Tonneau Bed Covers

I have a roll up tonneau cover and it is OK. When I retire and go on the road this is going to be my next cover.
Folding Tonneau Cover | Hard Tonneau Cover | Foldacover | Fold-a-cover
It is a solid fold cover that will open from the front or rear and it LOCKS, giving you a more security.

Just a quick story about a hard cover. When I first gto my truck I wanted a lockable cover and got one the folded into 3 sections with a lock that was on top juct before the tailgate. In winter water would get into the lock a freeze so I got smart and didn't lock it. On day in March we had a weather front come thru with gusts of 75mph. Well the cover blew up, took out the rear window and dented the roof of the truck. The cover was bent so that I had to replace it. I now have a soft cover (non locking).

I have the xtang trifecta, so far I like it very well, it is easy on/off if I want to haul mulch and provides great cover when on....

2air: we just nailed down the TV this evening (08 GMC 2500HD Dura etc crew cab etc) from a dealer who so badly wanted our business that they are delivering the rig tomorrow and we live 2 hr away. Beat all other regional GMC/Chevy dealers by a fair margin.

So far, since a color match for the tonneau cover we've chosen - something from A R E - isn't in stock, we'll just wait til our local topper dealer can get it in and have them do the bed liner. I did note the cover that scissors up. Going to go with cab end hinge as we'll seldom use the TV for hauling big stuff. We're stepping up in size from a 24' Sprinter chassis RV to a 27' Classic so it ought to be a long time before we run out of storage space.

As they say in Hawaii: Mahalo!

well then it's time to RALLY...

we will look forward to the photos...truck, trailer and the whole shebang!

the are covers are nice (so are the lear) and paint matching should be exact.

the paint comes with a lifetime warranty, my shell was returned last summer for a respray, after starting tp peel near the window...

cheers and no ka oi !

I also use a Folding Tonneau Cover | Hard Tonneau Cover | Foldacover | Fold-a-cover combined with a BedRug. I lay my bike down on the BedRug liner and lock the Fold-a-Cover. However, they do state that if you need something that is absolutely water tight, they are not for you. There is the possibility of leakage around the perimeter, especially the front. After about 7 years, the rubber seals over the hinges have failed on mine letting some small amounts of water in. Replacement rubber is available, but will require drilling all the pop-rivets that hold on the 3 hinges for replacement.

I still like the features of the Fold-a-Cover, but it is something you should be aware of.

I needed more covered room than a low bed cover would provide, so I went with a cab height Leer camper cover in color matched fiberglass. It's more money, a little heavier, but it fits my needs. One thing I did differently with my latest truck is, in stead of a spray in bed liner, I got one of the Bed Rugs. So far, I like it a lot.

Tonneau cover

We got a Rugged tonneau cover for our 06 Ford F150, it is a soft cover in three sections that fold back, with a lock, clamps underneath. takes just a few minutes on and off, and so far we like it fine. Cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $350 at our local Tricks for Trucks..
