tonneau cover ???

Merry Christmas!!!

Im in need of a toneau cover for my 08 truck and would like to know what you guys are using or reccomend.

I will be towing a goosneck trailer every now and then so it has to be able to fold up, roll up or remove to be able to hitch up the trailer.

Are the trifold types any good???

I recommend the roll-n-lock. Both I and my father-in-law have one on our trucks. They are put together well and lock (with a key) to both sides of the tailgate, and it can be set in several positions (not just open or closed). Watch Craigslist. I got mine for $150 in great shape. They will set you back around $1k new.

I liked the Truxedo I had. Excellent customer service & support even after warranty period.
