    Everyone, order from Santana! He helped me resolve a case and got me a retrax pro xr for a killer deal. Did not expect it to be so good! I ordered from him yesterday afternoon. It shipped out almost immediately and it’s out for delivery today…I cannot believe the level of service and speed. Amazing!

    trust me when I say this - you won’t get a better deal and better personalized service than this. I’m shocked how easy and great it was. Send him a PM asap if you need anything from realtruck.com

    Post back here on how it is. Considering getting this instead of the Bakflip to save money, but worried about water.

    So I did no adjustment of the gator, and it was my first time installing something like this so I didn't pay too much attention to the seals, but I felt pretty good about how it looked out of the box.

    I picked the most expensive and longest option on the touch free carwash and it blasted the truck with water and soap for many minutes and surprisingly very little water was in the bed when I opened it up. I blocked the drainage holes for the test but didn't take any pictures this time.

    I think with some basic adjustments and maybe some extra foam pads this would be a pretty reliable cover, as I don't think even the heaviest of rains come close to a direct, and close firing water jet.

    I'll play around with it on the weekend and run it through again but I'm very happy with it.

    And in case anyone is worried it's not just old stock sent out, it comes with a separate sheet for the 2022 model and some extra foam inserts for the corners near the cab where there is a little L-shaped curve gap so they at least did *some* homework.

    I’ve got the same cover and took it through a similar wash a few days ago - just some minor leakage around the tailgate and cab side. Nothing crazy that’s going to ruin your stuff. I do think a few tweaks and some extra rubber seals and this thing is 100% waterproof. Not bad for about $250!

    Pretty sure that’s the going price at a bunch of places for these, but I got mine on Real Truck.

    I just bought the Gator SRX and did a detailed review HERE


    It was $279 on their site when I bought it, now it's $289. They may be increasing the price slowly as more make it out into the market

    If anyone is looking for a hard cover, I been using the retrax pro XR for several days now and so far so good. I used a power washer on it and no water ended up in my bed. The top can hold up to 500lbs evenly distributed. It’s legit, no complaints and worth every penny. I would recommend 9 out of 10

    How did you get yours to fit? I just got mine and the cargo bed rails that the brackets slide into are about 2" to short for the handles to catch the bracket. I can't slide the cover forward anymore because then there is a gap in the tailgate.

    If anyone is looking for an OEM tonneau cover you might reach out to your dealership. I ordered mine yesterday, the parts guy said last week there were 400 backordered in the system, but as of yesterday it was down to 10. He said it seemed like they were finally ready to ship them out and get caught up.

    Awesome! Install was super easy. Took prob 45min to an hour. After doing it the first time I think it can be done in about 30 min. Main thing is to make sure its even on both sides and take measurements to make sure it’s the same width through front and back before clamping down with the brackets.

    It still works with the factory cleats and goes on super easy. Took me about 45 min to install cause I didn’t know what I was doing.

    Only thing I’m unsure of are the clamps. They fall right on the notches where the cleats lock into place so it doesn’t sit flat and some sit crooked in the rail system. The picture below shows what I’m talking about. Not sure if I should worry or not, or if I did something wrong. Also curious as to how tight I need to torque these bolts. If anyone that knows wants to chime in I would appreciate it

    So like MMTundra, I too am waiting for a topper to be available but still need to cover construction materials (not tools) in the bed for the mean time. I had already tried this soft tonneau on another truck with great results. Basically the Gator but maybe even a little better as I experienced zero issues with any part of this tonneau cover. So I went ahead and order/installed it on the '22 SR5 DC. Its called an Access Tonnosport, and for $300 it works great! ...And MADE IN THE USA!

    Cheapest I found is at Napa with free shipping...

    So do we have any clear winner(s) for who has the best fit?
    Lots of the ones I’m seeing (not just in here) look like they’re not even intended for use on our trucks the fit is so bad.

    For a soft tonneau, YES, the Access Tonnosport! Fit and finish is pretty damn close to perfect. They have tried to sell me front seal kits both times and I said no thanks, it doesn't need it. The install is super simple. The velcro is stout and with the knob adjusters it stays very taught.... minimal flappage! Rolls up tight and neat with nylon strap/clip fasteners. For $300, you can't really go wrong. My 2 cents.

    i can vouch for the access rollup covers. had a access original installed on our 2018 and as long as you dont leave it rolled up for months at a time, they weather our ND extreme winters (-30F temps) very well. i've had a foot of snow on top of the cover and its never stretched or fell in on itself. never even used any conditioner or sealant, etc on it since new. still pliable, soft and like new from day one. has faded a little since its outsdie 24/7 over the last 4.5 yrs but still in great shape. velcro still works lilke day one, clips still good and not brittle.

    usually go with the access original since it still lets us use the oem rack rails and tie downs along side the cover. just make sure you put the toyota tie down cleats where you want them to permanently be since you cant move them since mount points for the cover interfere with the rails.

    but then again access company HQ is in jamestown ND, so they got some good testing for extreme temps :)

    we are about 100 miles from them.

    BIG THANKS to @SantanaRealtruck for the great price and quick service. I ordered the UnderCover Ultra Flex Tonneau Cover a couple weeks ago and got busy and never properly thanked Santana. Ordered June 8, received less than a week later.

    Here are a few shots of the UnderCover Ultra Flex Tonneau Cover on my 5.5"

    That looks great! I'm a little sad I didn't read through this post before I ordered my cover from RealTruck, didn't know we had a forum discount thru @SantanaRealtruck although I still feel I got a good price on mine, should be delivered tomorrow!
