I do have one and am anxiously awaiting for it to be installed between my side toolboxes that are attached to my custom frame which is bolted to the truck box with four bolts that that thread into a nut tack welded on the underside of the truckbox. The tonneau cover attaches flush with the frame holding the toolboxes. By removing the bolts, retracting the top, unplugging the electrics, and removing a rubber tube it is a simple matter of picking it all up en mass' and taking it out of the truck for a camper. I need not remove anything on the frame if it is 48 inches wide or less. I will end up making a small camper with the fram as well..By august the frame will be complete with tent and all. Will supply pictures when complete.

I really like the roll top part of the retrax tonneau. Plus the company was very receptive to makinga custom dimensioned tonneau for my tool box frame that I had welded up for my roll top tonneau cover to fit into my new truck.
