Hey all,

I'm looking for recommendations on a Tonneau cover for my 2019 Trail Boss. Looking for something that offers some theft protection and that doesn't leak. What are you all using?
 
I'm currently running a Retrax one hard rolling cover. Just like any other cover there are pros and cons. on this cover there are 2 cons for me, one being the space taken up by the canister the cover rolls into when open, two is the ability to remove the cover completely if you need the entire bed you have to remove rails and canister which is more like a 2 person job if you don't want to bang up your canister. For me the pros are the hard cover cant be stabbed like a soft cover and has a lock for security. I like that the cover can be stopped and locked at pretty much any spot. So if you load something that's taller than the bed you can roll the cover back out up to whatever is loaded and lock the cover in place. I have seen a lot of review on covers and most have a little bit of leakage for water coming in but nothing crazy. Before the Retrax I had a soft roll up which worked but I was always worried of someone just stabbing the cover and grabbing whatever i had loaded up that day. I have been wanting to try the accordion style cover from Perrigon looks awesome easy to remove and has an optional double lock for security. Hope that helps even a little any questions just let me know.
 
There is only one and best I ever had!

 
Have a DiamondBack on my 2022 TB as well. Great cover. Has optional tie downs on top of cover for strapping things on top. Very handy. Holds plenty of weight and the HD version holds weight of ATVs. Little much for me. It is not 100% water tight but the amount that trickles in does not affect anything I'm carrying. My only think before you buy for this cover is, if you move a lot of big stuff or things that will not fit under the cover, you will have to remove one of two panels which is pretty simple and or the middle section which is more involved with clamps. Other than that it is a great cover and looks nice as well.

Mine had a slight leak and I figured out a simple solution. Never leaked again.
 
Gator EFX hard tri-fold. Been happy with it so far for a mid-priced option.
 
Rough Country makes a pretty good trifold. It is ready to pick though. Just need to slide a hook between the top of the tailgate and under the tonneau, twist, grab, and pull. It's that easy to get into. It is pretty good at keeping water out though.

I have a Retrax also. I got the poly cover, but wish I got the aluminum one. The version with the T-slot rails can be used for a variety of attachments. I got a set of tie-downs from etrailer.com for fairly inexpensive that allows me to secure tall loads of I'm unable to close the tonneau, or if I have to set it on top of the tonneau. Retrax has a motorized version that'll help prevent theft. The non-motorized version needing a key helps as a theft deterrent, but you can't lose the key, can't forget to lock it, and it's avidly fairly easy to pick if somebody is determined enough. Once the lock is open there's nothing preventing the tonneau from opening all the way. The more features you want with a Retrax the more expensive they become.

As somebody already pointed out, it just depends on what features you want versus what sacrifices you're willing to make. Most tonneau covers do a good job keeping water out. Perhaps selling on a price point would be a good start.
 
Was looking at a undercover ultraflex on FB marketplace, but not sure I like how the cover stands up like this when opened up... Seems odd to me.

I have the RC hard trifold and for what I need it works great and really like the look and quality of it. Much better than the soft roll up I had previously.

Just put a pic of a beautiful woman in a bikini on that tonneau and you'll be staring at that rearview mirror whenever you find an excuse to have the tonneau open.

After researching this to death, I ended up choosing the Diamondback HD for my 2024 Trail Boss. I liked the look, security, and reviews of keeping the rain out. I just installed it yesterday and love the way it looks!

Looks great! how long did it take to receive your diamondback? They say it ships in 5 weeks on their website unless you pay the $395 expedite fee (which seems kind of BS, would be better if they just ship first come first serve). Got my new truck on Friday and was going to order. I also see you went with the smooth finish rather than the “rugged”. Thanks for the pics really like how it looks.

Thanks! It took exactly 5 weeks. It shipped a few days before the estimated ship date they gave me when I ordered. I did choose smooth vs the diamond plate. It is textured like a spray in bed liner; just doesn’t have the diamond plate pattern. I just felt the cleats made it look aggressive enough. I’m very happy with the way it looks!
