Anyone go from Cover to Cap?

    Been thinking of swapping the folding cover I have to a Cap. After 2 years I have not really put anything in my bed that a cap would be an issue with. I dig the look and some jack hole down the street has one on his silver off road that makes me want to get one.

    To people that have swapped, are you happy? I realize visability will be reduced, but I would like the cleaner look and more functionality of the cap. Also, a dry bed would be nice. The folding cover leaks a bit which is annoying.

    Love my Cap/Canopy in the Northwest. Yes, visibility can be somewhat limited. You get used to side mirrors. I can say the back window in a Tacoma is about the smallest I have ever seen in a truck. MY F150 had no significant visibility issues as the rear window was pretty big which allowed for better rear view. Own a SnugTop. You can check my pics.
    Buying a canopy with full size windows does help with the view.

    Good luck. K

    I had a snugtop tonneau on my 99 and I have an undercover tonneau on my 09 but I have ordered a flippac shell. I enjoy getting out there and the flippac is a quick solution to camping that I am very much looking forward to. It all boils down to what you need and will use it for.

    I had a tri fold at first and it was nice to have lockable storage (i have a dynalock in the tailgate). I recently sold it to a member here and bought
    a leer 100XQ and i really like it. It is wired so it locks with my remote.
    Just finished 5200 mile trip of western us, we really enjoyed just tossing something in the back and locking, or eating lunch on the tailgate, i also installed a bedrug, so its almost like having a suv
