Which Tonneau Cover?

I am going to put a soft roll up Tonneau cover on my pickup but not sure which one to get. It is between the Access and the truxedo. anyone have experience with either?

FWIW, i HAD the Access t. cover, until some asshat used a knife to cut it and try and steal all the "stuff". Found the "stuff" , but have since went with a MOBILESTRONG truck bed storage system, and don't worry about it.

I've got a couple of the Truxedo's, both over the rail types. I have had no problems with either. One is only a couple months old and the other is 3 years old.

I've got an Extang FullTilt on both of my trucks right now, and I plan on getting another one for my next truck as well.

it was ok, but a real PITA to have to open and close to get stuff out of the front of the box. As a way to keep stuff dry from point a to point b they work, but if you are in and out of the box a lot, or carry odd height (ATV/elk/etc.) a pain.

Re: Which Tonneau Cover?

I had a Truxedo cover on my GMC1500 and it was well made and the look and fit were excellent. Having said that, I now have a Ram2500 and put a Roll-n-lock cover on it and it is great also and is much easier to use than the Truxedo, but the difference between the two is that I wouldn't dream of leaving valuables under the Truxedo but they are safe under the roll n lock. The Roll-n-Lock is about $2000 and the Truxedo was about $440 if I remember correctly.
