    I wanted to let anyone know who is looking for a roll up bed cover to really check this out on Amazon. I had one on my previous truck and it was not question that I would purchase another for my new tundra. These are found on amazon and for $189 with free shipping is an incredible deal. The cover is great quality and has the frame built into the cover so when you roll it up its a fully open bed. The locking mechanism and Velcro on the sides are all top notch. Don't waste your money on other big names when this one is great! It is raining here but when I get a chance I will post a couple photos of the cover on my truck.

    They also make a tri-fold if your interested in that.

    Here is the bed cover info for a Crewmax: Tyger Auto TG-BC1T9042 TOPRO Roll

    I see water in the bed though. I had water come in my Tacoma’s bed when I had the Tyger auto tonneau cover. They even sent me a second one and I sent pictures and they said it was all installed properly by me.

    I need protection from theft and rain and it didn’t hold up for me. But I think for most people it would be a great economical option. Not to mention their customer service was so amazing!

    By the way your link goes to a 6.5ft or 8ft bed which I don’t think is for the crewmax.

    It looks good and the price is great but the theft protection looks like its lacking. I really don't want to spend $900 on a cover.

    Definitely not trying to knock it but just my experience on the taco. Yours is the roll up cover so that may be better.

    I have been looking at the retractable covers but they are just so expensive.

    I just ordered this for my 2020 crewmax.
    All the reviews I've read are positive and it's $235 Canadian and free shipping. I'll get it installed later next week and report back

    I have had this cover on my truck for almost a year now. When washed it still looks great. I drive alot of dusty dirt roads here in Colorado and keeps out the dust and the snow and rain during winter and shoulder seasons. The Velcro is still strong and it has not stretched at all from highway driving. The theft protection isn't great but you do have "out of sight our of mind" in your favor. Just ordered myself some decked drawers for Xmas so that will help. But for anyone looking for a quality and affordable bed cover this is it.20181225_160454.jpg

    I had one of these on my 07 DC, and it was great. I would have transfered it to my 14, but it's a crew max, so it won't fit.

    Tyger Auto T1 Roll Up Truck Bed...

    Sometimes I couldn't find it either on Amazon but I had it in my cart for a week or 2 so I could find it again

    I just drove 6 hours in a rain storm (+2 C) and it has a small amount of water coming in sides but it runs down outer bed ribs and is ok for me. I'll look closer when I have more time. I did install the foam gasket across the headboard

    I don't have any pictures, but this is one from the companies Web site. It doesn't interfere with rear window visibility

    I bought the roll up one so I can haul dirt bikes without having to remove the tonneau

    @Northern Toyota thanks!

    I had deleted my post because I saw my answer in a YouTube video .....but you were too quick!

    Doesn't look like it interferes too much. Still undecided if I even want a cover. First time truck owner.

    I've never had one before and I've owned a few trucks. Good for days it's raining and you have something you don't want wet to go in bed (hockey gear for me) or groceries as I have 2 child seats in the back of my tundra. Rolls up in seconds, so for the money I said why not

    i just bought and installed one for a crewmax - trifold.. and it rained all day. no issues with water in the bed. for $200 i'm pretty impressed so far. I needed something but could not decide which direction i was going with the truck so this is a temp thing but will probably be on for a year or 2. anyway good purchase and if it lasts leak free (mostly) for a couple of years i'll be happy.

    Thanks for posting! Looking for inexpensive way to keep the bed clear of snow build up until I can save up for the Diamondback.

    Bought one to replace a trifold about a year ago...it's been almost bone dry in all that time. Only leaks were a few droplets at the tailgate in a DELUGE so fierce I had to stop driving. I carry bikes/motorcycles often, & it's WAY easier to stow when you need the bed, and works great to keep your stuff out of sight. With a locking tailgate (P&L popper), it won't open at all. Mine was under $175 from Amazon during a Black Friday special. I did use the foam gasket at the front...it gave me the most trouble mounting. Mounts more securely than the trifold did, and included all mounting hardware for the OEM bedrail system also.

    I've had my Tyger roll up for about a month and it has exceeded my expectations. I know it's not 100% secure but its worth it IMO because it takes about 30 seconds to roll it up. It's also nice not having to worry about something flying out the back.

    Got this for Christmas. Very happy with price, quality and hardware.

    As much as I have messed around with adjusting it, it seems like it’s almost an inch too wide. The Velcro barely catches on the sides. Anyone else seeing this?

    I've had mine now almost 5 months and haven't noticed any issues. I'd contact the company as they have a lifetime warranty

    Thanks good to know and will do. Wasn’t sure if it was just me / operator error.
