Thumbs up Retrax Tonneau Cover (Pics)

I am impressed with the Retrax Cover. Looks great. Does not leak even with hose sprayed directly on cover. Lockable anywhere along the track. Light weight. Very easy to open and close. Tailgate can be operated without opening cover. Works with or without utility track system. Perfect fit. Flawless instructions. Takes about 1.5 hrs to install. Built very well. Only nagative things I can say is that the cover does collect a little dust. You can hear a soft chattering noise when the rear window is open. And those of you concerned about bed space you will lose about a foot on the upper half of the bed but the lower half is not affected. All in all a great Roll-type cover. Would buy agian.

Re: Retrax Tonneau Cover (Pics)

Looks very nice... I have one on my Dodge and have been pleased and am considering another for the Titan.

A couple of questions. I see you haven't hooked up the drain tubes. Do you plan to, and if so, what routing are you considering (do you have the spray-in liner?)? Also, about what did you end of paying and where did you buy it?

Thanks!

Re: Retrax Tonneau Cover (Pics)

That looks great! I was looking for something like this before I settled on my Trifecta. I actually preferred the folder as I sometimes need the whole bed area for taller items. It comes off in about 15 seconds and is light enough to manhandle. And with the CC, I have less bed area than if it were a KC. How much do those babies run?

Oh and nice bedrug! One thing I have noticed, I don't get water inside my bed with the cover, but dust and road dirt finds its way inside through any little gap. You should see the layer of dust that builds up on the bed floor. Just a little info so you can keep her vacuumed. Hate to have you put something in there after two months of having it covered and it get all dirty on you.

Re: Retrax Tonneau Cover (Pics)

Does it take up much room in the bed? Does it leak?

Lose about a foot on top but the floor stays open. The only way water is getting in is through the tailgate. If this cover is installed properly it will not leak.

Re: Retrax Tonneau Cover (Pics)

I have had mine for over a year and love it. no leaks and works great.

Drawback: takes about 10-12 inches from the bed.

I had the Electric Pace Edwards Bedlocker on my 05 Crew Cab. It is very handy. I just decided to try a different cover this time. I am sure the motorized Retrax will be bad a**.

Looks good, wish I had the cash for one right now. I like the carpet as well.

Re: Retrax Tonneau Cover (Pics)

i've had mine for about a year. very nice cover. you need to wax it like the body. anything black just gets dirty very fast.

retrax usually provides tailgate weatherstripping. That helps prevent the vacuum effect which attracts dust. It's not 100% sealed but I've never noticed things too dusty back there but in So Cal we may not get the same problems as other places.

cost is under $800 shipped for these.
