    Does anyone know what the difference is between the signature series cover and the classic vinly is except for the price difference?

    Signature is a black canvas material, rather than the typical vinyl like material most tonneau's come with. I have the signature, it's really nice. I recommend it.

    Is the signature series difficult to clean? I've been thinking about getting one. I like the look a lot better than the vinyl.

    I have the Signature Series too. The material is very similar to that of a convertible top. It does pull some fuzzies from the wash mit though. I highly recommend the Trifecta top. I have had it for over a year and have had zero problems.

    I actually haven't cleaned it really. Seems like it wouldn't be too bad. The water beads up on it extremely well.

    Never have cleaned mine (signature) other than spraying it with water. Even when the truck is filthy the top stays clean. Aside from bird poo. It must repel dirt well.

    Thanks guys. Is it pretty well waterproof? I've read that most people say yes, but it never hurts to get a few more opinions.

    So far, I've never noticed any issues with water in the bed or anything. I got my signature from autoanything, and called in for some discount that was only available over the phone, not sure what one, or if it still works. I just saw print saying call for lowest price or something like that. I know someone with the regular trifecta, and they said my signature was really nice.

    Good luck either way, trifecta's are really nice tonneau's, much more convenient than the manual roll ups.

    i have the signature as well. highly recommend. i had a few water leaks at the beginning, i think because it was so cold when i installed it. once the sun hit it and warmed it up (i think it kind of helped the rubber sides mold to fit the bed better), ive had zero water issues. i didnt even install the tailgate seal it came with. mine has been douched with mud and it just came right off with the water hose.
