Thread: Tonneau covers

    I have an Access roll-up cover. I went this route so I could haul larger items without having to remove it. It's not 100% weatherproof, but it's pretty darn good for a roll-up, as long as the stake pockets are covered. It looks like it's similar to the Tuxedo brand. Had it for a few years and it still looks and works great! (We should all get commissions or somethin!)

    I just bought an 06 Silverado and it came with a Lund International roll up tonneau cover. Looks to be good quality. Easy enough to roll up. It has 3 tubes in it to keep it somewhat rigid. The tubes aren't bows. It has velcro on the outside edges to seal it tight. Can't complain since it came with the truck.

    I had a fiberglass ARE on my 2004 that I just traded off & liked the security it provided, however I am buying a soft cover (Extang Trifecta) due to ease of removal and access to the bed. Plus I got it off of CL for 100.00!!

    I have the Undercover hard shell for my 05 Sierra Crew Cab. I really don't think I would have a truck without one now. Love the look, lockability, and the ease of removal. I had a color match fiberglass one on my 94 silverado and loved the look but it took two people to take it off.

    I just picked a fiberglass tonneau cover in December. It was used but I only paid 200 for it and another 250 in parts for it to refurbish. so still not bad for one that typically costs 1000. I was just glad it was already the color of my truck.

    I was going to get a retractable hard cover. I believe that they are the best all round choice for security, and ease of bed use.
    I like the LOOKS of the paint to match fiberglass the best, but I haul to much stuff to be taking it off all the time.
    But when push came to cash I went with a soft roll up from Tuxedo. The Low Pro QT. I am VERY happy with it..it leaves the stake holes open for use, and it rolls up in less than a minute. And if you have a locking tailgate then you can not release the trigger on the cover unless you drop the tailgate first.
    Granted, if someone has a knife and wants in, they are going to get in. But it came with a lifetime warranty on everything, including the material, and it cost me 1/3 as much as the retractable one I was going to buy. All in all I am happy with my selection.
    Good luck with your choice.
