Tonneau Cover Question

I have a 2007 Tacoma TRD Double Cab and am looking install a tonneau cover. Is there any tonneau covers out there that allow you to still utilize the rail system after install? I am specifically looking for a roll up kind since I haul everything from a lawnmower to golf clubs in the truck bed. I would still like to be able to use the rail ties to help secure things from sliding around in the back. I would appreciate any advice in this matter...

I have the TRuxedo Lo Pro Qt on mine and i love it . You can even put the tie downs in the rail system and the cover rolls up . I have a few pics of it in this post :

Thanks I appreciate the suggestion. I noticed on one website that they come in different colors. Would you go with black cover for Desert Sand Mica color Taco?

Any other brands out there for suggestion? Or should I say is there any brand I should stay away from? Main goal is soft roll up cover but still want to utilize rail system.

I have a white ARE Tonneau cover that matches my Super White Long Bed Double Cab 06 Tacoma. I like the aerodynamic design that the cover has and it doesn't hinder the use of the rails. http://www.4are.com/product/lsii/

I am planning on installing this myself. What would be one that is simple and easy? I have read somewhere that you have to take the bed rails off to install certain brands. Any thoughts?

most of the trifolds will be the easiest to put on, 4 clamps and your done. Even the ones where you pull the bed rails, like the access tonneau above are not hard to install, just a little more time consuming. All that said, Access is one of the nicest tonneaus on the market. I also really like Extang

You could install it by yourself but I would suggest having a friend help you install a tonneau cover. I get to keep the rails on my truck intact with the ARE tonneau cover that I got. Installation should be around 30 mins to an hour depending if you've got some help and if you're already familiar with the installation steps.

I also have the Access Roll-Up and am very happy with it. It installed in about 30 minutes and I did it by myself using basic tools. It is nearly watertight and very easy to roll out or roll up.

Btw, the ARE tonneau cover also addresses the security issue with the Tacoma tail gate (for some weird reason toyota did not put any lock on it if you haven't noticed) by having the lock built-in. Because of this, the ARE cover is not only very strong/surdy, water tight, but will definitely secure your bed. Just wanted to add that thing up there.

See my Tacoma with ARE Cover below:

The Access covers are great and most allow use of the bed rail system. I have the Literider so I know for sure that does.

It took me about 2 hours to install the Literider but that's because I did it myself and it's a little tricky putting the bed rails back on with the spacers and tonneau rails at the same time.

For soft Rollup I would suggest any of the Access line...

We also offer a pretty sweet deal on Access to TW members...

See pricing page below...

Access roll up all the way... Yes, you do have to take the rails off, but with a second pair of hands a piece of cake. I did mine by myself in about an hour. Plus you get to use your rails and cleats when done

My Advance Accessories Hardshell tonneau locks into the factory bedrails, however you can still use them! No reason why not. The cleats are still there and can be moved.
Don't have a better picture than this, sorry.
