I wanted one that could work with Elevate TS rails, so I went with the Rough Country hard tri-fold.
$639 - $25 + tax at ReconRecovery (sign up for email for coupon) for a bit more than the Amazon/ebay ones, but less than the Bak/etc, I think its a good price point option (also, none of the cheap, hard ones can work with the bed rail/rack setups)
I use the Elevate TS rails to support a self-built folding ladder rack, and I've been searching for a hard folding cover that will fit between the T-slots with my mounts installed. I tried an early version of the BAK Revolver but it would not fit with the Elevate rails sandwiched in too. That experience also made me want to avoid any cover with wide/fragile extruded aluminum mounting rails that impede side access to the bed. Can you comment on the shape of the rails regarding their interference when reaching over the side into the bed, and how tight the fitment (width) is with the Elevate system in place?

I put this one on a couple of weeks ago. I like it. It’s been in a thunderstorm and through the car wash twice. I check each time and only see a few small drops of leakage.



I have a drop in bed liner any idea if thats an issue?

I haven’t seen a drop in for the maverick, so I’m not sure. I would guess it’s no problem.

I didn't put the weather strip on the front edge. I think it's too thick and seems to seal better without it.
Took the truck to the hand spray car wash today, and the tonneau did leak just a bit. I did have the weather strip installed across the front edge, and noticed a tiny gap there. I will see if I can tighten up the front a bit. If not I'll pull the weather strip off.

I got this from Amazon. Easy to install and very little leakage in high pressure car wash. Bad part it out of stock. Was $570. I wouldn't buy again only because I'm old and have a hard time releasing the hold downs.

This is the same one I have. Same seller even. Im getting quite a bit of water inside. Will follow up once I use the weather stripping.
May I ask from which areas are you getting water? On my threat, someone mentioned from the gaps of the tail gate. I believe there’s also the small gaps close to the curve on the bulkhead. I added small pieces of weather stopping to seal the gap.

Based on my quick inspection was both of those places plus some at the joints where it folds and there is no foam. I’ll try and get it sealed and then provide more feedback.

Mine also doesn’t sit square to the back window. Seems like it was not built quite square so I have to “split the difference” aligning it on the rails. Hard to show but here’s some photos.

I've noticed those same things.
now about the leaking areas. I will need to take a look these days that it’s raining here.

Ok thanks for confirming you saw the same! I’m not saying it’s not a good cover, especially for the price. Just need to manage expectations. I actually did an offer of $350 which the seller accepted which makes this a good value.

Got my eBay Tonneau looking pretty leakproof now. Instead of removing the weatherstrip I'd applied along the front section I just loosened up the latches and lifted the front edge enough to place a about a six inch section down each side from the front strip going back. Seems to have sealed up that gap to where I no longer see light shining through from the inside.

Do you have a drop in bed liner.
