    looking to get a retractable tonneau cover or a tri fold ?
    looking for the most best waterproof.
    I had pace edwards full metal jacket on my tacoma . had alot of water come in. i did like the function of the retractable cover.
    also had a bak flip was happy with it untill you have a small item that you must completely open.
    what do you cover your bed with and how water proof is it?

    If you want waterproof (or close to it), you can't beat what you have now. Hard hinged tonneau cover that covers the top of the bed side is the way to go. Of course, its functionality sucks.

    By the way, you can't have completely waterproof bed. It has holes and drains, etc. all over. If you want completely waterproof set-up, you should really go with a SUV.

    RollBak VP and buy the tailgate seals from auto anything.

    I love my VP, it is the best looking cover out in my opinion. I love it.

    I have the top end of the ARE brand which is a full, one piece hard cover that's painted to match the truck and I like it. It has heavy duty seals to keep the water out but I haven't driven it in a hard train yet, I'm in California! Taken through a car wash and it stayed dry inside. They make a tail gate seal that I heard works good but don't have one. I looked at the tri fold and roll back covers but wanted a water tight fit. Looks clean too. I'll try and post some pics soon.

    I had a solid one piece A.R.E. Color matched cover on my 2012 Tacoma. I would say it was 95% water tight. It was heavy to lift but looked really nice. I just ordered friday a Bak Flip F1 tri fold cover for my 2015 Tundra. Im hoping its as good as it supposed to be. I let you know once its installed.

    Chphilo and Tacouser I agree with you both. The hard cover looks good and clean but would need to be removed if you wanted to move anything big. It is the best bet for keeping water out though. I finally got a pic up now.

    What's more important to you ... Weather proofing or functionality? My old Nissan Frontier had a one piece fiberglass A.R.E. cover that was pretty good at keeping the bed dry and secure, but was a pain when trying to carry stuff taller than the sides of the bed. I'd either have to take the cover off (not a one person job) or use bungy cords to hold the cover down. This time around on my Tundra I bought an Undercover Flex cover. I've only had it a little over a week so can't really comment on how well it will hold up to rain and all. First small storm last week and so far so good. The main reason I went with the Flex was for functionality. Trying to take a full size (5.5 ft) hard cover wasn't going to be easier than on my smaller Frontier, so the foldability appealed to me. As far as being secure ... I think my old A.R.E. made me feel better, but I never keep anything of value in my bed for long.

    I had an American Roll full metal retractable on my old truck. Not 100% waterproof but much better than my PACE switchblade retractable. But also about twice the price.
