    Should be fine. I've had one similar for about 7 years. A hinge just broke but it works fine.

    Check out the Truxedo Lo Pro. IMO, a better set up as it rolls up completely out of the way and rolls back out tight with a self-tightening system. I've had mine for over 7 years, no issues!

    I also bought a Truxedo roll-up. I don't understand the purpose of a trifold when you can simply roll it out of the way completely. I don't know if mine has a self tightening system though. I'll have to double check (maybe that's what the extra straps are for?)

    Ah. Mine just says its a Truxport. Got it for $286, which seemed like a good deal. It's probably the lower end model I would assume. Nonetheless, I'm perfectly satisfied with it and it does the job.

    When I bought mine, they only had a couple different types. I tried the lo pro on another truck and was sold. Only way it'd be easier to use is to have someone else open and close it for you.

    I've had the Fold-a-cover G4 for about 3 1/2 years now. For the most part, I've been pretty happy with it. However, I recently noticed that the top metal skin on 2 of the 4 panels has delaminated. They oil can noticeably at highway speed. Also, the back end has a lot of flex around the latch mechanism. It feels like it is going to break in the middle. For the price of these covers, I'm pretty disappointed in how it's falling apart so soon.

    Bottom line...I used to be a big fan of Fold-a-cover, but now, not so much.

    YEP I have a TRUXSPORT and I can use the entire bed and still see through the rear glass. The tri fodls take away 1/3 of the truck bed or fold up into the sliding glass.

    I'm sure if you spend 5 minutes on Goggle you can find a ton. It's a roll up cover.

    Try Goggle, it's like your brain on steroids.

    Meaning you don't have to wait for pics. Find them yourself.

    Or ask a member nicely, so you know what you're looking at instead of 15,000 canned photos:thumbsup:

    He said please........... Waiting for pics from one forum member? The world is BIG. As is the MANY covers made. Hard to decide on a cheap roll up snap on cover. Gaaa must be 50 of them. And pics only tell part of the story. Does it last? What mods need done? Drilling holes? Silly Dbl sided tape? Like that lasts. Ect Ect.....

    Yea, some don't have the Google-fu or haven't tried it. You get the words right and be specific, you get linked to reviews, manufactures websites, all sorts of things.

    I live in a city. I wouldn't buy anything else but a hard top, folding or solid. I'll only buy the Elite, that is Oct, due to the stoopid heat here in Las Vegas when I install it. Sooper scrub on the liner area and the bed liner, protect with 303, then install.

    Truxedo roll-up or access limited rollup (which I have). Both proven and many members have them. If you want an affordable rollup go with one of these two and be done with it !!

    So write a review, tell him how you like it, the specifics and drawbacks. I'm not in to affordable, the OP never mentioned affordable, but that could be the case. I'm done here.
