Info on American Roll Cover retractable tonneau cover?
Been looking at various retractable covers and the American Roll Cover from Truck Covers USA has my interest.
I am leaning toward this one mainly because it seems stronger (can support up to 500# closed), it doesn't use a vinyl cover and it doesn't latch into the tail-gate (mine locks). Not really seriously looking at the Roll-n-lock or stuff from Pace Edwards based on 1st hand looks and folks results.
Anyone out there actually own one? I don't have a dealer locally to see one 1st hand so I figured I'd ask here...

Either these things suck or they don't sell for some reason- nobody has any 1st hand info on them???

I'm familiar with them. I think they are the best on the market although they are pretty darn expensive. They are made with double-walled aluminum (very strong), has a very small canister, and is low profile. The only con is that it requires 4 drain tubes instead of the typical 2. So, you have to drill two 1.25" holes just below the stake pockets at the rear of the bed. But, the cover comes with grommets, so it looks nice when your finished. Installation is not easy, I would say it's moderate.
Retrax just came out with an aluminum cover called a Protrax.

We'll see, but the Truck Cover USA offering still looks like a winner so far... Not in a hurry since I still have to get approval from the War Department! SWMBO has set my priorities for now...
