Default Tonneau cover suggestions

In the next 30 days or so, I'll buy a new to me F-150.
Most of the trucks I look at don't have a tonneau cover which I want to have.
Don't want a large amount of snow in the truck bed.
I'd like the cover to be a tri-fold hard cover. Think this design would be ideal for my use.

Like anything else in life, there is a wide variety of covers in terms of price.
As I'll be spending a fair amount of money on the truck and then Weathertech floor mats, I just don't to spend over $1,000 on the tonneau cover.
I'd appreciate members sharing with me their experiences and suggestions on tonneau covers.
Thanks!

I want to put one of these on my truck, when the one I have now gets worn.

Bakx4 rolling hard cover that you don't lose much bed space or the ability to see behind you like I've seen in the trifold covers you are talking about

Have a tri-fold UltraFlex by UnderCover. 3+ years no issues/complaints. Very weather proof on the Colorado in my signature. Once the tailgate is locked it would be hard to get into the bed, but I’m sure not impossible.

It's a little more money but why not go with the best. I've had my roll n lock for about 10 yrs and used it a lot. it still works great. it just rolls up into a small box at the front of the bed. I believe it's all aluminum. at least you owe it to yourself to check it out.

I have a Gator Evo which was the least expensive rigid when I bought 4 years ago. It is dry, stable, has withstood the elements of an ungaraged truck, and is secure when the tailgate is closed and locked. Also is available in a trifold.

A consideration that may easily be overlooked is compatibility with overbed racks. The key factor is commonly whether a rack and cover are compatible with stake pockets mounting. Even if you donít want a rack at this time consider selecting compatible rack and cover combinations when you buy one or the other at this time.

I have a Gator EFX on my truck. It took approx a hour to install. If I need to remove it there are 4 screw knobs in the front to take out, no need to remove the rails

never had a reason to remove the roll n lock. if you need to haul a fridge or other appliance just roll it up into the small box at the front of the bed. it allows you to use almost all the bed for whatever but still close the roll n lock when you want to keep things dry and safe. just close the top and lock it closed.
