    I am wanting to add a roll up tonneau cover for my 2011 Tundra. Which brand do you recommend from Tyger, TonoPro, or Gator?

    I have the Truxedo Lo Pro QT roll up cover on my crewmax and have been happy with it. The added bonus of the lifetime warranty is also a huge plus.

    Access makes a nice one. Had one on my first gen and ended up with one on my 2012 after 3 other fails.

    My Tundra came with the Truxedo Roll Up and at first I didn’t think I’d like it, but I like it MUCH better than the hard covers with flip panels I’ve used in the back. I find that I open it all the way a lot more. Something I avoided at all costs with the hard paneled one I had on my last truck.

    I have the gator SRX low profile one now. It had great reviews and was fairly inexpensive. But it is starting to be a little janky now and I’m kind of wishing I bought a different one. Having a hard time latching it shut now and I don’t like the clamps either

    I also bought low profile gator (3 weeks ago) and not too impressed. I only have one more tension adjustment left and it keeps stretching out. The low profile is nice though and keeps the stake pockets accessible. I think the same from Truxedo is 500.00 but probably worth it. Also not fan of the metal tubes for battens but maybe they all use them?

    I installed a Tyger roll up on my 20 Platinum. I never had a bed cover before and really like the versatility. I keep a tool bag with emergency items near the wheel well. I have unrolled it a couple of times to haul larger items, and was impressed how easy it is to use. We shall see how long it lasts, if I get a couple years out of it that's fine with because of the low initial cost.

    So, I installed the TonnoPro LowRoll but it fits poorly to say the least. It is 1.5 inches too short, so rain water pours in at the tailgate. I bought it from AutoAnything, spent a bit more and they sent me the Truxedo Rollup and are refunding the cost of the Tonnopro. The Truxedo fits great with no gap at the tailgate. Looks like the Truxedo is about 3 inches wider and 2 inches longer, so it covers all the edges of the Tundra bed. Thanks for all the advice.

    Check out North Mountain covers on Amazon. Have had mine for 3 years no issues looks great. Cant beat the bang for the buck. 150 for it. Really no difference btw the ones you listed other then name brand and warranty.
