    Not sure about any of those brands but the Century fiberglass tonneau I have really limits the use of the factory side rails. the tie downs are accessible but don't have much sliding space due to the hinge mechanism and the clamps used to hold the tonneau's frame.

    thanks, i hadn't thought about the limited sliding space. i'm thinking of building a long drawer with casters inside the box for better access to stuff inside...
