Default Tonneau Cover

Just purchased a new F150 and need to put a tonneau cover on it. What type and brand do gentlemen recommend? Did you install it yourself or have someone else install it?

Richard I have the Ford brand on mine but toying with the idea of adding and ARE or LEER cap. The cover is a pain because it is hard to get stuff up near the cab.

Love my Backflip F1. It folds in 4 sections and props up against the back window. It keeps everything dry when closed, but can still used to haul stuff while protecting the back window from being damaged by anything you're hauling. It's not cheap but worth it if you're going to keep your truck for a while. If your gate locks when the truck is locked, everything inside is protected as well. Great customer service too.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that it can be easily installed yourself. My daughter helped me and we installed the cover in about 30 minutes after watching the video.

I personally love this one. Reasonably priced and easy to roll up or down by yourself.

Bobby, did you really just provide a link showcasing a Chevrolet pickup truck? You must really love that cover.

Bobby gave a suggestion and he did not say anything about my choice of an F150 or how stupid I was for not buying a Toyota so I have to thank him for his suggestion.
