    Has anyone with an Access brand tonneau had to use their warranty? Or anyone that bought a lower model with a 3 year warranty wish they had the lifetime warranty?
    Ive read some threads about people choosing a certain model over the other because of the lifetime warranty, but what can go wrong with these covers?

    I have an access LE. It's 4 years old and looks great. I have never needed any warranty work and have minimal wear. I just wash it with the truck and wipe it down with 303 every so often. The corners are tight and the velcro is holding up just fine.

    I have seen numerous truxedo brand covers that look like total garbage after a few years. I think there's 3 or 4 people at work that have them and they all look like shit. Maybe it's how you maintain them. Maybe the ones that offer life warranty know they'll never have to pay out.

    Just wondering cause Im debating on the Vanish and the Lorado. The vanish is slightly lower but comes with cheaper hardware and only a 3 year warranty. But I was told that the vinyl/fabric cover is identical. So if the cover is supposed to last a lifetime, and they offer the same cover on the vanish, then only the hardware is really under a 3 year warranty? I have heard people with the Vanish say that they were not impressed with the parts, and that it could be better.
