Roll up truck bed covers

Hi everyone, I'm going to pickup a truck bed cover soon. Thinking a roll up style, many thoughts on what brand?

If you get the Truxedo, do NOT get the roll-up one that also allows you to open up the front of the cover. Mine leaks. Also, you have to roll the cover up in the normal fashion in order to get to the lock for the front half, so it kind of defeats the whole purpose, IMHO; unless you don't care about having it locked.

I had a regular roll-up one on my older Silverado and it was fine.

Not sure why you prefer roll up but if you're still considering other styles... Initially, I was thinking roll up for price but found this tri-fold on Amazon. For the price, it did the job and the company was good to work with. It was not completely waterproof but kept my cargo mostly out if the elements as well as out of eyesight. (FWIW, it seemed to leak from the front, so did great while driving. Not perfect while parked.)

Hope that helps.

Can you leave the tri-fold attached to truck while pulling the 5er?

Do not get a roll up. Been there done that. They stink. VERY hard to snap down when that happens. The velco styles loos grip over time. Go with a trifold. I have on my new truck (2years)
Love it!

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant
