    Hey Guys - I’m new to the forum and just picked up a 2017 Tundra Crew Max. I’m looking to add a Tonneau and wanted recommendations for a retractable tonneau that will keep things safe and dry. Ideally, it will be lockable, and a side note, I don’t have side rails. Any feedback would be appreciated!

    Welcome to the forum. I have never had a tonneau cover. My camper shell does the job with more storage space. I'm sure others will be happy to help

    I'm saving up for a Diamond Back. It's not tonneau but it's very secure and large load capacity...

    I have a Retrax One MX, and love it. No leaks, it locks, and it installed with no rails.

    I’ve got a 2016 CM with the Retrax MX One, and the right side of it has wiggle room, that allows water in. I had it professionally installed, took it back to the shop, even called retrax myself and they weren’t any help. Anyone here have any ideas how I can fix this?

    Yeah the back right is where the water comes in...but it’s got some wiggle along the entire right side of the cover all the way back up to the base...

    I got mine used, but the previous owner installed a second latch on the right to match the stock one on the left. It helps mine to not move. It stays snug against the tailgate.

    If the entire rail is wiggling, then your clamps may need to be adjusted.

    I saw that 2nd latch on yours and love it...I’ve tried looking to see how I could go about doing that, but haven’t had any luck. I think that would solve my problem. I’ve adjusted the rails so many times and still have the issue unfortunately.
