2020 Ram 1500 Limited Hemi Snugtop. Worth the wait. 4-6 weeks. As they matched exact Manufacture paint Color of the truck - magnum steel. Can highly recommend Citajet . Amazing how easy it is to wash after your next adventure. Gives your truck a detailed look all the time.

- Good rain seals and integrated drain tubes
- 5 yr complete warranty
-4 sections fold back keeping exposing 99% of full bed keeping GMC ultimate package rear / bed cam views.
-flush look keeping bed pockets available
-keyless access allowing access to the GMC 2020 Pro tailgate split functions without lifting top.
-Decent price
-Couldn’t get Fold-a-Cover to answer calls

I've had the BakFlip on my truck since new in 'o8 and I carry two bikes on top (with the front wheels removed and the forks mounted to a fork stand + ratchet straps on front and
back of the bikes). Works very well, but you do need TWO straps to make sure the bikes
do not move around. Been on a dozen caravans with no problems. Lock your tailgate,
and get the 'heavy duty' version of the flip.

Diamondback for the win!

It is the most durable and versatile bed topper ever. On my old truck I had a one piece fiberglass cover which almost blew off in a windstorm and had to be strapped down. That is not a problem with the diamondback. They also have an outlet store where you can buy steeply discounted covers. I bought it from the outlet store which was fantastic. You can also attach bike racks to the top or load a couple ATVs if you prefer.

I like caps and had ARE, LEER both aluminum and fiberglass but caps have their downside of visibility and you loose the truck look along with unable to carry things like upright refridgerators, motorcycles, ATV's... Then there's the downside of covers like not being able to run a generator inside to keep it out of the rain, not enough room to store all your stuff if you have a lot. I like to travel as light as I can and my tiny Alten generator fits and runs under my bed cover so I guess it depends on what you need?

What Truck bed cover do you prefer?

We really like our [B]Diamondback 270 but.... there are some caveats...
... coming from 20 years of toppers / caps, you are severely restricted as to height under any bed cover / tonneau. We thought that our Honda Eu3000iS would barely fit; but wrong - the tubing prevents carrying that size generator.
Also, the contour of the rear panel does not follow the sides of our truck bed and consequently it does not seal well even with the stake pockets filled in.
We had to fab some different anchor points for the latching mechanism when we added the truck bed side storage boxes.
It was just as expensive as any of our topper / caps.

Nice color match to the Airstream aluminum
Much better rear visibility than with the toppers
The 270 model allows very easy side access due to the gull-wing side hatches -
..... -->the reason for buying
It is quickly and easily removed should you need the truck bed for something else.
Versatile tie down points - more can be easily and inexpensively added
GREAT customer service!

Now, we are really set ... just need warmer weather to re-install the bed slide from three former trucks
Anndd, we "have" the Eddie Bauer model to match our AS

Same reasons as above. Easy to install, no roller at back, easy to open sectionals, very secure if back tailgate locked. I’ve had electrics on previous F250 and this looks good and a lot less money. Great deals and water drains at the back.

Leer Tri-fold HF350M hard cover on my F250. It is low profile, has so-far been waterproof, and locks with the tailgate. It also has other nice features including no-drill installation, release latches on both sides of each section for easy access, and integrated struts which allows the cover to be folded up flush against the back window of the cab for total access to the bed.

I went with the "Pickup Pack" from Highway Products. You can customize them with dozens of variations. In my case, I wanted all tools, supplies, generators, compressor, and other cargo easily reached, but secure and out of sight. So, I went with 2 eight foot tool boxes along each side, a 2000 lb rated bed roller (the older and fatter I get, the more I love that) , and 4" raised bed cover. Also got the combo headache rack/ canoe or ladder rack. Click on my gallery to see photos, as I don't know how to link to them on my phone. Very pleased with the choice.

I have a bed cover but not perfect. So, here are my preferred parameters:

• F250 vehicle
• Tonneau type cover
• fit eu3000is on wheels under cover
• lockable
• flexible usage - does not have to be removed to have access to the bed
because I catch fish on a fly...

Pace Edwards on my 2019 Superduty. Four drains and no exterior lock. (interior) Can add racks if so desired. T rails are low profile. Take a look.

+1 on the DiamondBack. 400 lb version was enough for us.

Pace Edwards Ultragroove. My criteria was I wanted something that allowed mounting a bike rack. The cover has been good and water proof as long as I keep the drain lines clear.

Retrax all the way, made in the US, and I can mount the bike rack over it and still open and close it with out issue. Best investment I've had for my Dmax to date.

Color matched to truck.

VERY light.

Seals excellently.


One person can easily lift it, but the width makes removal a 5 minute 2 person job on my short bed GMC Crew.

Been running these over 15 years and never had a problem.

On my previous Sierra, I never had one... I’d throw a tarp across. Kinda redneck, but, it sufficed.

Recently got another Sierra, this time I bought a tonneau for it. Having never had one, I thought I’d start with an inexpensive one, but, it has turned out rather nice, an Extang ( it worked really well for us so far.

Now, shortcomings: the one I got only flips back by thirds, and doesn’t go vertical at the end, thus limiting full use of the bed without removing it. I’ve since begun to think it’d be helpful to have some sort of rooftop carrier, and being able to add a rack over the top would be helpful. I’ve also considered switching to a cap, but since that first notion, I’ve already encountered several situations where I’d have had to have removed it for hauling other things, whereas the tonneau folded back and out of the way enough that I could still haul bulky things... thus, I’ve backed off the desire for a cap.
